Pinky & Red’s

A Pandemic And A Cancer Diagnosis!

 “Support Pinky’s Cancer Gofundme Campaign”

 I am the Founder and Executive Chef of Pinky & Red’s restaurant. Pinky & Red’s was my only source of income and that income was lost due to closing the restaurant on March 16, 2020 due to COVID-19. I was diagnosed with colon cancer in August 2020. I cannot describe the feeling that comes over you when you receive a diagnosis like that, but what I can tell you is it’s a shock to your entire body with the biggest shock attacking your brain. I hope you can help me by donating to my GoFundMe. I am sincerely in need of your continued support and am so grateful for any way you can help. I hope that you will walk hand-in-hand with me through the next steps of my stage 3c colon cancer journey, and my medical triumphs!

A Note From Pinky Founder of Pinky & Red’s

The Road Ahead

The COVID-19 Pandemic has made it especially hard for Pinky & Red’s due to the location of our restaurant. As long as the State of California, City of Berkeley, and UC Berkeley Campus have their individual stipulations Pinky and Red’s will need your continued support to reopen and remain open for curbside service. I appreciate The Berkeley Community & People far-and-wide who have donated. Thank you for sharing Pinky & Red’s story with your family and friends, for your kind words of love, and for your continued support.

I want you to know that I come from a long line of cooks, chefs, and entrepreneurs. Our restaurant menus were developed based on generations of my  families recipes from our “Old-Fashion Sunday Dinners”.  It is an honor to maintain that same quality of “Soulful Comfort Food ” that I am now entrusted with preserving into the next generation! I appreciate all the love and support the community has shown for Pinky & Red’s.

Always “Serving Delicious Goodness” with Love!
