Lotus House and People's Barbeque Partner for Thanksgiving In Overtown

Lotus House Women's Shelter in Overtown (217 NW 15th Street) will celebrate Thanksgiving by serving over 500 holiday meals including turkey, all the fixin's, and dessert to their friends and neighbors in the city.

This will be the shelter's "Fifth Annual Thanksgiving Day Celebration."

The 500 meals of roast turkey and sides will be specially prepared by the excellent, classic soul food joint People's Barbeque of 360 NW Eighth Street.

President of the foundation that operates Lotus House, Constance Collins Margulies says "The Overtown neighborhood has been deeply supportive of Lotus House since the day we opened our doors to serve women and children in need. Giving back is our way of saying thank you."

The event is sponsored by philanthropist and art world luminary Martin Z. Margulies.
