This February 26th, Sanctuaria is rallying together with the local food community, friends & family to support longtime friend Chef Chris Lee on his road to full recovery, after he suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident.

Chris is a familiar name in the St. Louis dining scene & is especially loved by his In Good Company family, where he was the original executive chef of such community favorites as Sanctuaria Wild Tapas, Hendricks BBQ, Café Ventana & Diablitos Cantina.  Chris created many of the favorite dishes our customers continue to request to this day!

He’s continued to be a highly recognized Chef since, taking home top honors at several local culinary competitions, including the 2012 & 2013 Chef Battle Royale at Taste of St. Louis.

Chef Lee was injured when a wrong-way driver crashed head-on into him & his best friend, Thomas Trostel, while riding their motorcycles, as first reported by St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Sadly, Trostel did not survive.  Chris’ injuries were both serious & extensive: he suffered a broken clavicle, sternum, shattered ribs, collapsed lungs & a shattered elbow & leg.

Chris’s surgeries are complete & he is making progress on a long & difficult journey, but he still needs your continued support.  Let’s show Chris & his family our love, this February 26 from 6-11pm at Sanctuaria!

Suggested $25 donation at the door.
