Last year, 805 Living’s Dishing It Out for Charity challenge proved that pairing a desire to give back with a special dish from a fine restaurant is the perfect recipe for a season of giving. For the third year in a row, restaurants from around the region are stepping up to the plate. Each one has developed a dish, and for every one sold during November and December, each restaurant has pledged to donate $2 to the charity of their choosing. Last year, the Dishing It Out for Charity raised more than $15,400. We need your support to make this year an even bigger success. Try these specials to discover a delicious way to give back. A special thanks to UBS in Westlake Village and Santa Barbara for being our presenting sponsor for the 2018 Dishing It Out for Charity challenge.
