COVID-19 has had an impact of many, so Lexus has chosen to lend a helping hand. A specially trained team of product specialsts are also amazing Chefs, so the Lexus Culinary Masters are cooking and delivering for those in need. The corporate headquarters gave each member a donation of $50,000 with no strings attached. It had instant results around the nation.
Dominique Crenn, a Michelin-starred chef, heads up the prestigious Atelier Crenn in San Francisco, and she is donating time and amazing meals to the doctors and nurses at UCSF Medical Center. Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo are the co-owners and chefs of Animal, Son of a Gun, Jon & Vinny’s Fairfax and Brentwood, Helen’s Wines Fairfax and Brentwood, and their full-service catering company, Carmelized Productions in Los Angeles.
When learning of Lexus’ donation, Jon said “We can’t be more thankful. It’s more than anything we could ask for,” says Shook. “It’s unbelievably difficult in this industry as a whole. We don’t know how COVID-19 is going to affect the restaurant and the industry. It’s uncharted territory”.
The Lexus team is also making a difference in Miami, NYC to support first responders and the unemployed. Thank you Lexus for this unprecedented generosity, from all of us at duPont REGISTRY.
