DINATING — the name says it all: part dining, part donating. This amazing organization has figured out a way to help feed hungry Angelinos by setting up genius eat one/feed one dining experiences. To do this, Dinating selects a restaurant that is both great and socially responsible, then curates an evening where a portion of the cost of your meal is donated to feeding in-need families. So far they’ve provided more than 14,000 meals. At Legend of Lido, we are inspired by global travel and with global travel comes global cuisine, so Dinating has been our perfect charity partner for many events in Los Angeles.
THE SELECT GUEST
MEET | BENITA LITT
+ KRISTA LISSNER
Featured 12.26-1.1 | I wanted to end 2016 on a high note, and couldn't think of a better way to do it than to highlight Benita Litt + Krista Lissner, the creators of Legend of Lido. The two grew up on opposite sides of the country but met and became fast friends, and their line of bags, pouches and dopp kits, all made from one-of-a-kind original prints, are a testament to their their shared love of travel, design and philanthropy. They each have impressive pasts: Benita was an entertainment lawyer who also happens to know the lyrics to every hip hop song from the 90s, and Krista was a publishing and sales exec who can guess the amount of any item in a jar to the number, but it's their decision to donate a portion of the proceeds of each bag sold to feed hungry families in the community of the artist that makes what they do truly extraordinary. Welcome to Benita + Krista's week.
