For the sixteenth year, Zsa Zsa Gabor and husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt purchased 300 Thanksgiving turkeys at Albertson’s Market in Santa Monica for the Vera Davis McClendon Youth & Family Center in Venice. The McClendon Center is where Ms. Gabor did her community service after slapping a cop 16 years ago. Ms. Gabor and Prince Frederic have purchased Thanksgiving turkeys for the Vera Davis Community Center in Venice every year since she did her community service with them.
Bygones obviously being bygones, the Mayor’s office presented Ms. Gabor and Prince Frederic certificates of appreciation for all they have done for the community.
“We decided to make Thanksgiving a part of the people’s lives at the center when Zsa Zsa was helping out and bought them all turkeys that year,” said Prince Frederic. “Back then it was only 40, but now it’s grown to over 300. Vera passed away a few years ago, but we have continued the tradition of giving turkeys to the poor families that the center helps support to make it a happy Thanksgiving for everyone there,” he continued.
