Dinner to Benefit Local Resident

Here is information on a benefit at Auntie Em's to help out a local resident. Please RSVP today if you can attend:

Dinner to Benefit Peter Hoffman-Kipp
RSVP: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Hello All-

I’m forwarding this message to you to help raise awareness and funds to help Peter Hoffman-Kipp who has been quietly coping with a disease process that is not well understood by the medical community and offers little to no treatment.

Peter and his family have been coming to Auntie Em's Kitchen since the day it opened and have been supporters of the restaurant to this day.  Auntie Em's Kitchen is a neighborhood restaurant and we are so grateful to our friends and neighbors for the support and patronage they have shown us.  Thus we would like in our small way to try and help Peter and his family.

The Hoffman-Kipp family have been going this alone while we have watched and wondered what we can do to help? Now we are offered the chance to do some real good, something tangible, and something that offers hope to restore Peter’s health and give him a fighting chance to win this battle.

We ask you to partake in a meal with Peter and his family on Friday May 13th from 6-9pm at Auntie Em’s Kitchen restaurant in Eagle Rock. Dinner/drinks suggested donation is $75.00 per person.
TO RESERVE & RSVP: If you can attend, please contact Genevieve Harlocker This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. no later than 5pm WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON, MAY 11th.

AUNTIE EM'S KITCHEN is located at 4616 Eagle Rock Blvd, CA 90041 / 323-255-0800

The Following is a synopsis of what is going on…

As some of you know, Peter now has a triple diagnosis – Lyme, ALS and CIDP. The addition of Lyme disease to the mix happened a few months back, and it led us to a wonderful doctor in Seattle. This doctor saw Peter in February, and is now leading us through a complex web of treatments. For example, Peter is receiving IVIG treatments with a home-health nurse twice a week, acupuncture every day, takes 25 antibiotics and supplements daily AND travels to Beverly Hills once or twice a week for specialty treatments. Did I mention that he should also be going to the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center 2-3 times a week along with a bit of qi-gong?

In terms of Peter's daily life, he books around in a wheelchair and usually stays pretty close to home. A caregiver comes each morning and evening. Peter is currently on short-term leave from his work until mid-May, in order to focus on these treatments.  It has been 3 ½ years since the symptoms started, and Peter is tired but strong.

As you may know, treatment for neuromuscular disorders is rare, often alternative, and expensive. Insurance (even the great PPO we have) does not offer much coverage of treatments (except the IV treatment Peter receives at a tab of 10k a week).  After 3 1/2 years of finding experts in the fields of neurology and neuromuscular disease, we finally found the doctor in Seattle who has agreed to treat Peter. He recommends a symphony of treatments, many of which we have begun.

Peter's doctor recommends stem cell treatment, which requires international travel and $25,000 per trip. Our goal is to raise the funds to make the first trip happen this summer. Peter may need 3-4 trips, if his body responds to the treatment.

Families helping families is what is going to get Peter through this and whatever you can do is much appreciated and more fundraisers between now and July will be held in order to get the family enough funds to make the trips for treatment. We'll keep you informed and you can also find us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it." target="_blank">TeamHoffman-Kipp.org

Thank you very much!

We brought 2030 Estes Road on the market on April 3, listed for $749,000. We had five open houses. We received 15 offers. We closed escrow (11 day escrow with an all-cash buyer) on April 21. Final sales price was $925,000.

This is truly a special property and homes like this don't come along very often.

This is the short story. For the details, stay tuned.

Inside Chateau Emmanuel

On Saturday we had the opportunity to check out 1554 Hill Drive, a.k.a. the Beakins Estate, a.k.a. Chateau Emmanuel, a.k.a. That Big House on Hill Drive, which is currently for sale for $4.9mil (recently reduced from $5.995mil). You've probably noticed this place if you've spent any time in Eagle Rock, it's the large Tudor-style home situated on a massive (read: 3 acres!) piece of property. The current owners have been cleaning it up and doing some renovations on the house in the past few years. The grounds are incredibly impressive. Let's take a look:

Walking Up the Driveway

Here's the view of the house as you walk up the (loooong) driveway to the main entrance. On your way to the front door you pass two guest houses (one of which has two units and a separate workout room) and the garage.

View of the path leading up to the front door

An impressive front porch, for sure


Entry, with stairs leading up to three bedrooms and baths. To the left is the living room and sun porch, to the right is the dining room and kitchen. Down stairs is quite a family room, complete with a full bar and entrance directly to the pool

Living Room

Pool + View

Pool + Spa

And here is where I would spend the majority of my time if I lived here! Gorgeous pool with a fire pit and bar/outdoor kitchen area

Path to Croquet

This is the path to the croquet court, just past the Bistro and outdoor dining area

Pond + Guest Houses

Pond, with guest houses in the back


Stage (located just below the pool area), where apparently Ronald Reagan made a speech when he was running for president. Perfect spot for a band to play!


Gardens, gardens everywhere - it must cost a fortune in water bills to keep it all going, but they sure are pretty!


The greenhouse is stocked with seedlings for a vegetable garden

Sitting Area Overlooking Gardens

And the perfect place to sit and overlook your vast estate...

There's your quick tour through Chateau Emmanuel... what do you think? Would you spend your millions on this interesting piece of Eagle Rock property?

"Denial or Definition" Event at Occidental College

A client of mine sent this event to us, saying: "I've been working with the student organizing this (she's also working to secure a film screening with a Q&A that would facilitate additional dialogue around these same themes) and one of her primary goals is to create an event that would bridge the Oxy and and Eagle Rock communities. So I'd love to help her get community members there."
Thursday, April 14, 7-9pm in the Morrison Lounge off of the Branca Patio in the Johnson Student Center.

Please join the Occidental InterGroup Dialogue Program for an evening of conversation about faith, personal identity, and its implications in our daily lives.  All perspectives are welcome and encouraged, from both the Occidental community and the surrounding LA area.  Refreshments will be provided.

Please RSVP to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Please look for more information regarding a panel of religious leaders and a screening of the movie Reel Bad Arabs in conjunction with this program!
