Lulu and DAP Health
There’s always a party at Lulu and on August 21 and 22, the party is in honor of Lulu’s 10th anniversary! Delicious food, generous cocktails, and all around fun have been enjoyed by more than two million guests since Lulu opened its doors on August 22, 2011. To celebrate the 10-year mark and to thank everyone who has supported Lulu throughout the years, Lulu is making a gift of $10,000 to DAP Health (formerly Desert AIDS Project). The community is invited to join Lulu in gift giving, too. On August 21 and 22, anyone who gives $100 or more to DAP Health to help celebrate Lulu’s 10th anniversary gets their own present…a $15 gift card to party at Lulu!
“We are so thankful for the support Lulu has received over the past 10 years from both local residents and visitors from around the world,” said Lulu founder Jerry Keller.
“In honor of this milestone, Lulu will be making a $10,000 gift to DAP Health in support of the vital healthcare services they provide to Coachella Valley residents and we hope others will join us in supporting DAP Health, too.”
“The Keller family and their businesses’ long-time, generous support of DAP Health has enabled our organization to expand in such a way that we now provide comprehensive care for more than 10,000 individuals. Our annual Dining Out for Life event benefits greatly from Lulu’s commitment to ending the HIV epidemic, inspiring others to join the fight against HIV,” said David Brinkman, DAP Health CEO.
Through their support of the annual Dining Out for Life and many other contributions over the years, Lulu and Acqua California Bistros have given more than $400,000 to DAP Health.
When Lulu opened 10 years ago, it transformed the corner of Palm Canyon Drive and Arenas Road into a dining destination. From its lively outdoor terrace seating, to its climate controlled patio, festive bar, bustling dining room and party-perfect mezzanine, Lulu has become the restaurant all of Palm Springs loves. Lulu’s menus are some of the largest and most varied of any Coachella Valley restaurant and years of accolades support it: best weekend brunch, best meal for the money, best California cuisine, best craft cocktails, best vegan/vegetarian, best caterer and many, many more. Over the past 10 years, publications from the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Wall Street Journal to Palm Springs Life and The Desert Sun have all recommended dining at Lulu.
“The party has continued nearly every day since Lulu opened its doors,” said Keller. “We couldn’t have done this without the support of our loyal guests and of course, our dedicated and committed staff who make the magic happen. Lulu’s promise is to provide great food, drinks and service in the safest way possible, and today, more than ever, our top priority is everyone’s safety in our restaurant.”
To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Lulu will also serve free cotton candy to every table all day on Saturday and Sunday, August 21 and 22.
