The TreeCat Café is a cafe and performance venue managed by youth who have experienced foster care and who live at the Treehouse Community and participate in the HEROES Leadership Project. The TreeCat Café provides high school and college-aged Treehouse and HEROES youth with opportunities to take on new leadership responsibilities and develop the confidence and skills to run their own business. They do this with the support of local business owners and elders of the Treehouse Community, who offer their expertise and mentor youth in entrepreneurial skills.

Soup from the cookbook, Soup for Syria, will be served at the event. Soup for Syria includes recipes from acclaimed chefs and cookbook authors from around the world who have joined food relief efforts to alleviate the suffering of Syrian refugees. The book will be available for purchase and proceeds from the book will also be donated to NuDay Syria.
