Bake Sale Benefit for My Dee Dee's; UnChristmas Party

UPPER KIRBY— In true Houston spirit, whenever one of our small veteran businesses is hurting, the community bands together to help out. After a series of recent tragedies, Bella-Katherine Curtis' My Dee Dee's Pie Shoppe suffered another hardship. The family-owned shop burned down just days after baking 2,000 pies for Thanksgiving. Now, a whole roster of top chefs will be contributing to a benefit that will be held this Saturday (December 7) from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Haven. The event's hosts are Fluff Bake Bar's Rebecca Masson, Haven's Randy Evans and Roost's Kevin Naderi. Underbelly's Chris Shepherd will donate an auction item, and Triniti's Samantha Mendoza and Mr. Peeples' Johnny Wesley will offer up baked goods for the sale. Killen's Barbecue's Ronnie Killen will be bringing his famous Pearland barbecue pop-up to the event, too. Admission to the live music and food benefit is $50 and goes directly to helping the bakery rebuild. Guests are also welcome to just stop by the bake sale and pick up some goodies. [Eaterwire]
