Lajollacooks4u kicked off its 10-year anniversary by welcoming a local, for-profit organization into its kitchen this month.

Apex Leadership Company, an organization that partners with schools to raise funds for equipment and other campus needs, brought sixteen of its team members to partake in a corporate cooking challenge.

The evening began with Lajollacooks4u’s signature olive oil competition and was then followed by team members splitting into groups and selecting a dish to prepare. A head chef was appointed to manage each team, and team members chose to either help prepare the recipe or to help produce a 90-second infomercial showcasing their assigned dish. Many laughs were had in the process, and all of Apex’s team members enjoyed the delicious food and great company – all while taking in the view overlooking Mt. Soledad in La Jolla.

“What a way to kick off 2018!” said founder Chef Jodi Abel. “This was such a dynamic, fun-loving and inspiring group. They jammed out on the piano while cooking, sang karaoke while eating, and their infomercial creativity blew me away! It’s no wonder why their work has made such an impact on our community – this was a very special group of people.”

Known for its out-of-the-box fundraising model, Apex Leadership Company combines fitness, fundraising and leadership into a powerful united event and incorporates a two-week character-building and leadership program that culminates with a meaningful student fun run to raise donations for schools. Formerly Apex Fun Run, Apex Leadership Company's new name reflects all the programs available to help serve the community.
Programs now include: Apex Fun Run, Apex Serve, Apex Remix, Anython and Color Battle -- all run by the same team, with the same unwavering dedication to unparalleled service.
