A pre-turkey day charity bash will be held at Wokano Santa Monica this Saturday, Nov. 19, to help raise funds for the Westside Food Bank.
“Turkey Soup 2011″ festivities will include complimentary hors d’oeuvres from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. and music by DJ Hapa from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Wokcano.
Tickets are just $5 in advance or $10 at the door.
Alternatively, a minimum donation of five canned food items can also be donated instead of paying the cover charge.
Westside Food Bank’s mission is to distribute as much food as possible to local agencies with food assistance programs and to reduce food waste on the Westside of Los Angeles County.
As the food bank warehouse for the Westside since 1981, the non-profit annually distributes nearly four million pounds of food to the food assistance programs of 65 Westside social service agencies. They do not distribute food directly to individuals, only to agencies.

Wokcano is located at 1413 Fifth Street, Santa Monica. For more information, visit http://turkeysoup2011.eventbrite.com/ or call the restaurant at 310.497.6324.
