July 2019 The Sophia Way Fundraiser event
The Rainy Day Chefs team have always enjoyed supporting a variety of causes and charities. The Sophia Way is one of the causes that we love to support. This cause commits to supporting single adult women experiencing homelessness in King County move into housing. We have supported this cause for almost a year now by donating meals to the day and night shelters at the Sophia Way. 
This year we decided to do something more for The Sophia Way. When we went to these shelters we noticed that the women there didn't have some basic necessities like blankets to keep them warm, clothes, shoes etc. We decided to help these women.
On July 28th, we will be hosting our first fundraising event to support The Sophia Way. We are organizing an event for people to stop by and donate items from the list below. We plan to make it fun by also sharing some tasty snacks made by the Rainy Day Chefs. Stay tuned for the menu!
Please send us an email at if you are interested and we will share the details of the event with you.  

Here is how you can make a big difference by helping the women in our community that need your support. 

Together we can make a difference!  Let's do this. For any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to us at Thank you!!
