7 East 27th St., New York, NY 10016

Please join us on Monday, March 11 as we honor the memory of our beloved colleague, Nadja Frederick, and raise funds to help support her family. The cocktail-style event will feature food and wine from Chef Jonathan Benno and the teams at Leonelli Taberna and Leonelli Focacceria.

Nadja Frederick was a mother, wife, friend, veteran, and our amazing General Manager at Leonelli who touched the lives of both co-workers and guests. She lived her life to the fullest, radiated positive energy, and took nothing for granted. Nadja was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, and over the past year the flare ups became more frequent. She never let her condition keep her from showing up to the restaurants each day with a smile on her face, ready to lead the team. In January 2019 Nadja tragically passed away due to complications from her illness. She will always be remembered deep in our hearts as a strong, powerful, and passionate woman.

100% of ticket sales from this event will benefit Nadja's sweet 11 year old son, Dorian II, as her husband Dorian Sr. works to care for him as a single father. We hope you'll join us in celebrating the life of Nadja Frederick, and help support the family she leaves behind!
