From heartwarming wedding celebrations and collaborative team building exercises, to community fundraisers and joyous birthday festivities, events are a major part of our lives as they mark important milestones and provide opportunities to collaborate and socialize with friends and family. However, in the last five months, our ability to gather has drastically changed.
While this has affected many of us on a personal level, an entire industry of professionals dedicated to catering and event planning, has nearly come to a grinding halt. Folks like Dawn and Chef Marty Deardorf of Aurora Catering, who have provided the Bay Area with these services for the past 12 years, have had to drastically adapt to the rapidly changing environment.
Responding to California’s Shelter-In-Place orders back in March, Dawn and Chef Marty pivoted to offer seasonal inspired chef-made family dinners to Castro Valley residents, and actively support the community in providing meals for those in need.
