Gabrielle's Feast Summer 2019 Wrap-Up


I wanted to make a short post to say THANK YOU to everyone who came out to "Gabrielle's Feast" last night! It was great to see all of you, share a meal with you, and help raise money for ovarian cancer research together! 

Thanks to your generous donations last night, we raised $3000 for ovarian cancer research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center through the Gabrielle Dudley Memorial Fund! Yay!! (Some of the gifts are processed in person on weekdays e.g. checks being deposited by the Hutch, so the total $$ will be reflected on the fund page soon). Very exciting, and so important in the fight against cancer. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. :-) 

Here are a few photos from last night's Feast. If you couldn't make it to this one, look for news about the next Feast which will likely be in the Spring (or Winter if I can figure out how to seat so many people inside ;-)). Adrienne will be back from New York at that point so we might be featuring a Vietnamese-inspired menu! Yum!

Dining al fresco is a treat in the Northwest!

Lots of fresh mango pureed with lime to go on the coconut tapioca pudding.
Herbed basmati rice. There was enough.

Renée, Riley, and Steve were the best sous chefs/waiters/event planners! Thank you!

Best sister-in-law!

Thank you to our guests!! You raised $3000 for ovarian cancer research in one night!! Wonderful!

My mom's brownie recipe always makes me feel like she made them for me 💖.

I will post about the next "Gabrielle's Feast" sometime later this year. Hope to see lots of new or familiar faces there! Cheers!

P.S. Thank you to my auntie Marti for the photos!

Gabrielle's Feast Summer 2019

UPDATE: All seats have been reserved. If you didn’t get a seat, look for another Feast event in the Autumn! Cheers!

Dear friends,

I hope you are all enjoying this lovely summer weather! 

Whoever knew my mom knew this- she loved to eat! She had a voracious appetite and interest in new and delicious things. She loved sharing food with others, and having long conversations over good meals. Gabrielle loved to host people in her home for dinners, and she loved to raise money for important charitable causes. In honor of my mom, we will be hosting a cancer research benefit dinner on Saturday 8/24/19 at 6:00PM to raise money for ovarian cancer research! It will be at our house in Shoreline (e-mail will include address). If it goes well I will continue to host them in the future.

All are welcome, but reservations are required. Email Daniel:  to secure your spot (seating is limited!). Suggested donation is $100 per person (but you are welcome to give more!). Donations can be made during the event or in advance through the Fred Hutch website (Gabrielle Dudley Memorial Fund Fred Hutch) using a credit card. 100% of the proceeds will go to groundbreaking ovarian cancer research through the Gabrielle Dudley Memorial Fund at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. For a brief description of one of labs this fund supports which is investigating "reprogramming a patient's T cells" to fight ovarian and other cancers at the Hutch click here.

Menu is posted here, upon making your reservation, please let me know if you have any dietary restrictions and I will do my best to accommodate them. Cheers! -Daniel J. Dudley

Gabrielle loved holiday cooking, and particularly-- holiday eating!

Gabrielle loved Italian food! We learned to make pasta together with this authentic Italian pasta machine she bought.
