On Sunday November 22nd, at 6pm The Cheese Store of San Diego is donating our venue to help raise funds for the victims of the Paris attacks. 10% of all purchases made this evening will be donated to the French Red Cross. 

On Friday, November 13, 2015 a terrible tragedy occurred in Paris, France. Acts of terror left 129 dead and over 300 people injured. In the face of this horrid event, Parisians rallied together, initiating an open door policy with the hashtag #PorteOuverte. Croix-Rouge Francaise (the French Red Cross) responded immediately on Friday, placing 340 volunteers around the city to support victims, their families, and all of the people of Paris affected by this horrible incident.

On Sunday, November 22, 2016 at 6:00pm, we invite everyone to join us for a Je Suis Paris Fundraising Adventure to benefit Croix-Rouge Française (French Red Cross) in their efforts to provide relief to the victims and survivors of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris. Event will include appearances by bestselling authors Susan Vreeland, Jennifer Coburn, Mary Duncan, Amy Finley, Jan Moran, and Juliette Sobanet, as well as, French food samples, wine, desserts, a special Je Suis Paris candlelight ceremony, silent auction, and a chance to stand together in love & support of our friends in Paris.

Admission to this Adventure will be by donation, and all proceeds from this event will be donated to Croix-Rouge Francaise. The event will not be ticketed, but RSVP is appreciated and further information about the event can be found here

Auction items include signed books, French wine, book club visits with authors, dinners with authors, and much more. Special thanks to Cypress Grove Cheese Chèvre for donating cheese to the event.
