Yesterday, I offered a list of local restaurants holding fundraisers for Haiti. And as I anticipated, many more were in the works. Here’s an update:
Purple Cafe & Wine Bar and Barrio restaurants are accepting donations for UNICEF’s Haiti relief fund now through Sunday, January 24. Corporate owners Heavy Restaurant Group will match a percentage of those donations.
Thursday, January 21: Pan Africa Restaurant near Pike Place Market is hosting a fundraising dinner. Call 206-652-2461 for reservations.
Saturday January 23: ART Restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle will donate 10 percent of all dinner bills (before tax and tip) to Red Cross. Monies raised will be sent as part of a large corporate donation from Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts.
Sunday, January 24: A number of area restaurants, including Quinn’s Pub, Restaurant Zoe, Dinette (mentioned yesterday), Le Gourmand and La Rustica will donate a percentage of the night’s proceeds for a group donation to NetHope. Skylark Cafe & Club will donate a portion of brunch proceeds. More on that effort here.
Wednesday, January 27: LTD Bar & Grill is hosting a fundraiser from 5 p.m. till close. All proceeds from draft beer sales will be donated to Mercy Corps. There will also be raffle prizes, donation jars and complimentary snacks!
Sunday, January 31: Mercer Island’s Cellar 46 wine bar and restaurant is hosting “Turning Wine into Water” — with all proceeds from wine sales sent to Haiti for water, food and medical supplies. The event begins at 5 p.m. and includes live music, food, wine-tasting and a wine auction. Individual donations will be collected at the door.
