Grand Opening of Kyle’s Kitchen: Eat Great Food, See Great Art & Help Great People

March 24, 2015 (Santa Barbara, Calif.) – Kyle’s Kitchen, a new restaurant concept inspired by a special needs student at Mountain View School, announced its grand opening will take place March 28. In line with its mission to offer guests the opportunity to “eat great food and help great people”, the do-good eatery plans to donate the proceeds from Saturday’s event to SlingShot, a working art studio and gallery.
“Kyle’s Kitchen demonstrates a genuine and heartfelt purpose in sharing part of their proceeds each month. You can easily understand their values within seconds of talking to them. To partner with them is a tremendous honor,” said Sue Dumm, Artist Representative at SlingShot.
“Their philosophy and attitude that all people have something unique and special to share, matches the philosophy of SlingShot. Thirty-four SlingShot artists with intellectual disabilities will benefit from these funds,” added Dumm.
The grand opening of Kyle’s Kitchen is set to take place Saturday from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. The event will bring together the greater Santa Barbara area to benefit the special needs community by showcasing seven SlingShot artists as they create one-of-a kind pieces at the restaurant from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase the original artwork in addition to indulging in delicious burgers, salads, milkshakes, and more.
Kyle Ferro, the inspiration behind Kyle’s Kitchen, loves turning strangers into friends and giving hugs. He will be present Saturday to meet attendees from noon-3 p.m. and from 5:30-8 p.m.
“Our mission at Kyle’s Kitchen is to help the specials needs community reach its full potential by donating a portion of our proceeds to a different special needs organization each month,” said Jay Ferro, Owner of Kyle’s Kitchen and Silvergreens.
“Kyle has shared his story and in return has received an overwhelming amount of love and support, making Kyle’s Kitchen a welcoming place that not only gives back to the special needs community but also raises awareness and promotes acceptance.”
