House of Hope invites the community to cook for a cause!

The leading non-profit provider of substance abuse and mental health programming is excited to announce the launch of Cooking for Hope, a virtual cooking class series with celebrity chefs. The new series invites the community to join well-known Chef Louie Bossi on Thursday, May 13 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. as he demonstrates and guides guests through preparing a delicious three-course Italian meal.

Bossi is excited to lead the cooking demonstration. He made his first pizza at age 11. “I learned to cook as a kid out of necessity,” said Bossi. “Cooking is all about family, and that’s why I love to cook. I look forward to seeing everyone’s expression on Zoom during this class and sharing the joy of the meal with them.”

The cooking class will be held via Zoom with former news anchor Neki Mohan as the moderator in a live chat. For those who would like to cook along with Bossi, an ingredient list will be sent to participants along with the Zoom link the week before the event. Alternative options can be provided for any dietary restrictions. Grocery delivery is available upon request for an additional cost.

Bossi has a connection to House of Hope. During a dark period in his life when he suffered from addiction, he was a resident there. “I am supportive of House of Hope because they help so many in our community who struggle with addiction. I know firsthand how hard that is. We all have someone in our family that faces alcohol or drug abuse. We are not immune.”

Tickets are $70 per person. To register, visit The registration deadline for the cooking session is Thursday, May 6. Proceeds from the night benefit House of Hope’s substance abuse and mental health programming.
