Festa Della Donna at CUCINA urbana

Related Special Reports

On March 8, 2013, we're saluting solidarity sisters. With political roots dating back to women’s liberation in Italy in the 19th century, Festa Della Donna is a movement celebrating all things female.

March 8 is known as International Women’s Day, and customs include the gifting of the vibrant yellow mimosa flowers (woman to woman, man to woman) as an expression of gratitude and a tribute to womanhood. Recognized across the globe and in major American markets like New York and Chicago, the initiative is moving westward as San Diego's female-owned Italian kitchen and wine shop, CUCINA urbana, dedicates three days to girl power, March 8-10.

Support your sisters

All day long on March 8, gal pals (and their guys) are invited to come down to CUCINA urbana for lunch, dinner and libations. A portion of proceeds from the day’s sales will benefit the Center for Community Solutions, a local nonprofit organization that provides emergency domestic violence shelters, hospital and court accompaniment, as well as legal and counseling services for those affected by rape, domestic violence and elder abuse. In addition, custom "Festa Della Donna" T-shirts will be donned by staff and available all weekend for purchase for $25, with 100 percent of proceeds benefiting CCS. The t-shirts are also available on urbankitchengroup.com.
