We Have an Announcement!

Elaina and April in the doorway of the new location.
Dear Culture Club Members and Friends,
It is official! We’ve done it!
Yesterday we took the first crucial step in the rebirth of Culture Club 101: Elaina signed the lease for a new space on Washington Boulevard in Pasadena.
Planning and construction will commence shortly, and we’ll be keeping you updated on this new chapter in our story as it unfolds. Although we expect many challenges ahead, we’re inspired by all of you and hope that you will continue to support us.
Want to help? Here’s what you can do right now:
  • Help us spread the word! Make sure you like our Facebook page, and engage with us there. (Your comments on our posts help them get seen by more people!)
  • Share our information with your network of friends (online and offline). Ask them to like us on Facebook or join our email list at http://bit.ly/cc101join.
  • If you’re able, contribute to our fundraising campaign. Learn more on our GoFundMe page.
If you would prefer to lend us your time, stay tuned! As things move forward, we’ll be looking for volunteers to help with our build-out and move.
We would love to hear from you! Elaina built Culture Club largely by listening to your needs, and this continues to be our driving force. It’s all about the conversation, so please contact us with your ideas.
Please keep us in your thoughts. See you soon!
– Thank you from Elaina and all your friends at Culture Club 101!

On to Plan B!

Hi, friends! Thank you so much to those of you who together pledged over $50,000 to our KickStarter campaign! Real Food Devotee Monica Ford and I are truly grateful to you all! As you know, we didn’t reach our goal of building the Real Food Culture Kitchen, so … On to Plan B!

We know it’s important to you to have Culture Club 101 as a valuable resource for nutrient dense and fermented foods, and our goal is to reopen as soon as possible. Bringing back the classes and workshops in making these foods, the extensive library, and community events such as food and film nights are back in the works as well!

gofundmeWe are now engaged in a new fundraising effort at http://gofundme.com/CC101. What’s really exciting is that our KickStarter campaign gave us a glimpse of what is possible. We could really “feel the love!” But we feel this new fundraiser is a better fit for us. We’ll keep you engaged and informed about our progress as we move forward, and we hope to hear from you!

So if you were a backer on the Kickstarter campaign, we would love for you to reengage your commitment by donating on GoFundMe. And, please stay tuned for new developments. Let’s rebuild this community!
