LEFTY's Digital MAZON Dinner

Saturday, January 23, 2021

My name is Isabelle Lensmire. I am a part of Temple Isaiah's teen youth group, LEFTY, and am also fortunate enough to be this years MAZON chair. Every year, LEFTY teens hold a huge, incredible fundraiser in which all proceeds are donated to MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger.
This past year has brought much worry, confusion, and a sense of hopelessness to many, especially to individuals who face food insecurity. Although LEFTY teens are unable to hold our typical MAZON fundraiser under the circumstances of the pandemic, we still need your help. In fact, we need your help now more than ever! 

LEFTY teens, myself, and all of those who are conflicted with food insecurities thank you for your support. We are filled with gratitude and love.

This year we need to celebrate LEFTY’S MAZON DINNER a bit differently.

We have created many options for you to celebrate MAZON with us, choose any or all:

Option 1  
Order dinner and drinks through the Inn at Hastings for pickup on January 22nd.
50% of the proceeds from the cost of your meal will go to MAZON. 

The Inn at Hastings Park has always been guided by the same principles that guide the Temple Isaiah community: Tzedakah (justice), Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and Hachnasat Orchim (generosity & hospitality). They are honored to be partnering with LEFTY to provide the food and cocktails for this year’s virtual Mazon dinner. To celebrate the occasion, they have designed a menu that celebrates the island of Puerto Rico, where owner Trisha Perez grew up and learned the importance of welcoming people with generosity and hospitality. They hope that you will enjoy it!
The Inn at Hastings Park will be accepting orders via the Inn’s website thru Friday, January 15, 2021 for food to be picked up throughout the day on Friday, January 22, 2021. Deadline for ordering has been extended to Sunday, January 17. Instructions will be included for reheating.

The price per person is $36. They will also be offering bottles of Cava (Spanish sparkling wine) and 16 oz. bottles of their Sangria Boricua for $18 dollars a bottle. They are allowed to sell up to 64 ounces of alcohol per order which means you can order a bottle of Cava and 2 bottles of Sangria, 2 bottles of Cava, or 4 bottles of Sangria.
