Gourmet chef opens home to Seacrest Village supporters

ENCINITAS, California (Press Release)– Over 110 patrons of the Seacrest Village Retirement Communities’ The 211 Club enjoyed a spectacular evening on Sunday, July 11,  at the home of Jeffrey Strauss, owner and chef of the acclaimed Solana Beach restaurant Pamplemousse Grille. The occasion was to celebrate their commitment to the charitable mission of Seacrest Village.

The evening began as supporters such as Ellen & Ingram Chodorow, Betty & Melvin Cohn, Phyllis Cohn & Arthur Brody, Patrick Dempsey, Alberta Feurzeig, Pauline Foster, Bryna Haber, Irwin & Joan Jacobs, Lisa & Gary Levine, Sheila & Jeffrey Lipinsky, Jane Ottenstein, Adele Rabin & Stephen Cohen and Seacrest’s Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Bob Haimsohn, and his wife Merrill were treated to homemade assorted pizza fresh from Jeffrey’s outdoor stone oven, turkey sliders with remoulade and pommes gaufrettes and tuna tartar with wasabi caviar all while overlooking gorgeous views of the Solana Beach coastline and listening to the lively sounds of a cappella group “Augie’s Side Effect” Other guests included Teedy Appelbaum, Sondra & Robert Berk, Barbara Bloom, Pearly Cutler & Raymond Mason, Norma & Werner Dreifuss, Mary Epsten, Diane & Elliot Feuerstein, Carol & Ron Fox, Janet & Roland Gorrie, Marge & Jerry Katleman, Zita & Morris Liebermensch, Joan & Arthur Markovits, Gloria Penner & William Snyder, Mona & Jeffrey Platt, Mark Steinberg and Bebe & Marvin Zigman.

Following the cocktail reception, The 211 Club patrons were seated for dinner and welcomed by Seacrest Village Vice President of Philanthropy Robin Israel, and Chef Jeffrey Strauss. Jeffrey “welcomed the Hebrew Home to his home” and expressed his commitment to this event for the past decade. CEO Pam Ferris thanked Jeffrey and guests for their tremendous support of the residents. With not an empty seat in the outdoor courtyard, Seacrest’s Corporate Director of Marketing Carolyn Brooking informed guests of details on the four different types of care that their support enables and party patrons dined on gourmet fare that featured a tender filet of beef or basil roasted salmon. Following the meal, each of The 211 Club patrons were presented a special commemorative pin. Guests were then invited to indulge in an amazing dessert buffet that included chocolate bread pudding, blackberry and peach cobbler, an assortment of cookies, a cheese and fruit display, chocolate mousse, three kinds of crème brulee, pecan tartlets and many other decadent treats. 

Members of The 211 Club – an arm of the Milton D. and Madeline L. Goldberg Resident Assistance Fund – are a prestigious group of community leaders who are the cornerstone of a tremendous fundraising effort. Their individual contributions of $1,000 or more annually help to ensure the greatest possible quality of life for the residents of Seacrest Village. This annual appreciation dinner recognizes patrons for the care and services that are made possible through their generosity.

As a non-profit, charitable organization, Seacrest Village provides housing and healthcare services for the community’s elderly. Offering these services regardless of one’s ability to pay creates an annual shortfall of approximately $1.5 million that must be met through fundraising. Almost four hundred seniors between the Encinitas and Rancho Bernardo campuses are cared for each year. Members of The 211 Club can take personal pride in knowing that every dollar generated goes directly to meet the needs of the residents.
