Jimmy Kimmel recently spoofed a Kanye West interview by using child actors, and them’s were fighting words to Kanye (even though they were his own words). Ye has been attacking Jimmy on Twitter, but since Jimmy’s been using Twitter to plug a charity event, do you think they can come to a peace agreement?

The first annual Feast of San Gennaro in Los Angeles took place in 2002, and more than a decade later, it’s still going strong! It was started by Jimmy and others who have Italian ancestry, and there’s def an Italian bent to this whole charity. The non-profit they created, The San Gennaro Foundation, is named after Saint Gennaro, the patron saint of the Italian city Naples. The website explains its work by saying that org focuses “primarily on helping resource-challenged children through various programs such as mentoring, scholarships and educational workshops.”
The fundraising dinners they have are always star studded events, and, of course, you get to enjoy good Italian food while you're there. If you're in the L.A. area and able to attend, you'll be pleasantly surprised to see it isn't expensive, unlike many charity dinners put on by the stars. There will even be games there for you to take part in!
All this gets us wondering: Maybe if Kanye is invited, all wrongs can be settled over a good meal? There’s nothing like saying “arrivederci!” to a Twitter feud by getting together for a philanthropic event. Buon appetito!
