Improve your quarantine cooking & support Autism services in your community

Jay Nolan Community Services (JNCS) invites you to a festive virtual fundraiser in your own home--with a culinary twist! Follow along with our 1 hour cooking demonstration and learn about the mission of JNCS, all while improving your quarantine-cooking skills.

Our virtual cooking demo is taught by the talented chefs at Hipcooks LA (www.hipcooks.com).

Support Critical Services: Our goal is to raise funds in support of critical services for individuals with autism and other developmental and intellectual disabilities. In these trying times of pandemic, rampant wildfires, and economic challenges, our contribution as a support agency with trust and deep relationships in our local communities is more important than ever.

Registration: $20 per participant. Proceeds and donations go to support JNCS services. You will receive Zoom information and class details via email upon registration.
