From Oakland, with Love 

When: Sun., Oct. 25, 5:30-9:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $15 donation
If you’ve been reading about the Syrian refugee crisis and have wondered what you might do to help, here is one small way: On Sunday, Doña Tomas (5004 Telegraph Ave., Oakland) will host a benefit to raise money for the International Rescue Committee and the Migrant Offshore Aid Station. The fundraiser was organized by Sahar Shirazi, a planner at the governor’s office by day, and also an accomplished cook who has done catering gigs and popups for several years, including Domingo Gigante, a now-defunct brunch popup at Doña Tomas. Shirazi is still tweaking Sunday’s menu, but a selection of passed hors d’oeuvres should include pumpkin soup and Persian potato pancakes. Doña Tomas, Pizzaiolo, and other local restaurants will donate additional food, and a slew of other eateries — including Duende, Juhu Beach Club, Comal, and Camino — have donated gift certificates for a silent auction. — Luke Tsai
