Last month, Domain celebrated 10 years of impact with community partner, Liberty’s Kitchen alongside 700 guests at their annual Come Grow With Us fundraising gala. The gala was held at Ace Hotel New Orleans and featured cuisine from some of New Orleans’ finest culinary visionaries who worked with Liberty’s Kitchen trainees.
Liberty’s Kitchen is a non-profit organization that strives to create bright and healthy futures for New Orleans Youth. Their 16-week Youth Development Program teaches life skills, culinary and customer service training and professional development to maximize career opportunity for young people between the ages of 16 and 24 who are out of work and out of school.
It is Domain’s belief that companies play a vital role in shaping and renewing neighboring communities. The company remains steadfast in supporting organizations like Liberty’s Kitchen through sponsorship and advocacy.
Co-CEO, Matt Schwartz has served as a Liberty’s Kitchen board chair and advisory board member for several years. He announced at Come Grow With Us 2019 that The Domain Companies would match all gifts raised during their Call to Action, up to $20,000. Liberty’s Kitchen crossed the finish line. The non-profit cafe was able to meet the match and raise a total of $40,000 in just two weeks!
