Fundraiser for Amanda Little at Cult Taco

Posted on December 15th, 2019 by Cult Taco

Here at Cult Taco, we have received tremendous support from locals in the Monterey Bay Area. One such is Amanda Little, who at 26 years old was forced to medically retire from the Coast Guard after serving for six years due to a rare vascular condition known as Nutcracker Syndrome. Amanda is now 28, has the goal of attending Brown University to be come a writer, and is facing an open-vascular-transplant surgery.

We have been lucky enough to get to know Amanda and her husband Stephen through countless visits here at Cult Taco. As some of you may know, part of our mission at Cult Taco is to support our community in the best possible way. We want to help Amanda bring awareness to this rare disease and help assist her with medical bills.

In order to do that, we are offering a silent auction to cater a dinner at your private home for up to 15 guests. We will make this event an unforgettable evening full of great food and drink to share with your friends and family. We will hold this silent auction until January 1, 2020. Bidding will start at $500 and the highest bidder will have a menu personally created by Chef Michelle Estigoy.

Please DM us through Facebook or Instagram for all bids and/or questions. Thank you so much for helping us support out amazing community!
