Meet and Eat at Chelsea Alehouse this Saturday

Meet at Chelsea Alehouse this Saturday, November 23, from 9 a.m. to Noon. You'll enjoy fresh deliciousness and the camaraderie of Chelsea-area folks. Yellow Door volunteer chefs are whipping up the following brunch options:

* Michigan Smoked Trout Benedict served with O'Brien Potatoes and spinach salad

* Ryan's Breakfast Sausage Casserole served with O'Brien Potatoes and spinach salad

* Pumpkin-spice Pancakes with Cranberry Orange Maple Syrup served with O'Brien Potatoes and pork sausage

{Local foods supplied by Tantre Farm, Ernst Farm, Back Forty Acres, Calder Dairy, Mighty Good Coffee, Westwind Milling, Kelly Farm, Dexter Bakery, Chelsea Alehouse and Michigan Trout.}

Your breakfast donation of $15 (or more...) benefits the Chelsea Community Kitchen, an educational resource devoted to developing and growing the sustainable food culture in the region.  

{A super HUGE thank you to Kathy Carter and Moore Pediatrics for co-sponsoring this breakfast.}  
More good news: Chelsea Alehouse is featuring a special libation called Bloody Beers. This concoction is made with McClure's Bloody Mary mix and the Alehouse's Silo White brew. Please note that this drink and all brews are extra (not included in the breakfast donation); however, the Alehouse is donating 10% of beer purchases all day to Yellow Door. Yay!

Yellow Doors to Benefit CCK and At-Risk Youth

So happy to share the news that Yellow Door is hosting two breakfast events. The first, November 23, will benefit the Chelsea Community Kitchen. The second, our traditional New Year's Eve gathering, will benefit the emergency fund for at-risk students in grades Pre-K through 12th grade in the Chelsea area.

Mark your calendar now and plan to join us on November 23 and December 31:

 Yellow Door
9 a.m. to Noon
Chelsea Alehouse

Menu planning is underway and will, as always, feature the best ingredients of the season from regional farmers and producers. You know it will be good, so plan on attending these community gatherings and support worthy initiatives.

More details to follow once the menu is determined.

Sponsorship Opportunities

In the meantime, we're seeking underwriters for these two events at $250 for partial sponsorship or $750 for underwriting an entire event. See your name in lights -- well, rather, on large displays, in emails and here. Your goodwill will go a long way to help bring the community together to raise funds for Chelsea Community Kitchen and at-risk students. Contact Janice if you'd love to be a sponsor.

Chefs, marketing pros, food prep and servers have already committed their time. More volunteers are needed for various duties. Get in touch via facebook/yellowdoor to volunteer.
