Gluten Intolerance Group of Marin Holiday Potluck 2012

Posted By Alison On Nov 8, 2012 @ In GIG of Marin,Holidays/Special Events | 1 Comment

Mark your calendars and get out your recipe books: our Holiday Potluck is slated for Tuesday, Dec. 4. With a start time of 6:30 pm, this annual tradition offers more time for socializing among members and enjoying delicious gluten free foods together.

We are delighted to announce that this year our special guest will be Elaine Taylor, president of the Taylor Family Foundation and founder of Camp Celiac. In the spirit of the season, GIG of Marin will be giving the donations we collect at the door to The Taylor Family Foundation to support their goal of preserving the wellness and enhancing the quality of life for Northern California children with life-threatening or chronic illness, including celiac disease.

We will also hold a special raffle to raise money for the Taylor Foundation so bring extra cash or your check book!

Elaine Taylor has celiac disease herself, and is an advocate for education about gluten.  Her daughter, Katie Alin, is the owner of Miglet’s Gluten Free Bakery in Danville.  Read an interview with Elaine here.

For the potluck, please bring a savory or sweet item to share with a card identifying the ingredients in your dish–particularly ingredients that are known to cause reactions in some people like eggs, dairy, corn, etc–so that all can find foods that are safe for them to enjoy.
And, if you can, please stick around at the end to help clean up the room–many hands make light work.
Because we need to provide enough supplies for everyone to enjoy the potluck, RSVPs are particularly important for this meeting. Please do so on our Facebook event page or by sending an email.
Help us spread the word and reach more people seeking support for their gluten free lives: visit our website for a printable flyer that you can post in public places and share with your friends, family and medical practitioners.Whether you have celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or are learning more about gluten free living for yourself, family or friends, we welcome you to the GIG of Marin. New members, friends, and loved ones are always welcome.The Gluten Intolerance Group of Marin will meet:
