One thing is certain as you are walking the pristine beaches of Manhattan
Beach: beach volleyball rules. Mike Simms, owner of the newly opened Tin
Roof Bistro at the Manhattan Village Shopping Center, is keenly aware of the
town's penchant for volleyball. That is why he is teaming up with the
Association of Volleyball Professionals to host "Serve Up A Cure" on
Saturday November 14 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. benefiting Padres Contra
El Cancer, a nonprofit supported by actress Eva Longoria to help children
living with cancer.
Athletes who are used to serving on the sandy courts will, instead, serve
the public as waiters, bartenders and hosts at the luncheon and all tips
collected will be donated to Padres Contra El Cancer to supplement the funds
being raised that day by Tin Roof Bistro. In addition to mingling with the
players, guests will have an opportunity to pick up tips from them as a
temporary volleyball clinic will be set up near the restaurant. Also,
attendees will witness the creation of the massive ice cream sundae.
Executive Chef Anne Conness will lead some of the young beneficiaries from
Padres Contra El Cancer and AVP players in (putting on the finishing
touches/topping the 100 pound concoction with whipped cream, hot fudge,
caramel, nuts, cherries and other delectable items) during the two-hour
event. The public will have an opportunity to partake in the massive
dessert for only $2 each.
