I’ve sat here and watched CNN for weeks now wondering what I can do to help the situation in Japan. With all the things going on in Orange County: people organizing bake sales, businesses doing their bit, I am glad I can do something in a small way, and that is to help promote these two upcoming fund-raising events.
HAVEN GASTROPUB: Monday, March 28th, 2011 — dine here any time of the day and Haven Gastropub will donate 100% of their profits during normal business hours (11am–2am) to a Japan Relief Fund through Mercy Corps. This will help families in Japan affected by the disaster.
The staff are also volunteering by donating any gratuities earned that night. With Haven Gastropub doing SO MUCH to help this effort, the least you can do is stop by, even if it’s only for a beer! And don’t say you didn’t have the time they are open 15 hours — you can find 30 mins to drop by and do your bit!
PROOF BAR: Monday, March 28, 2011 — (9pm-11pm) — Proof Bar is re-launching its Monday night karaoke and we’ve made it even better. Fellow blogger Marian The Foodie has organized a Japan Relief Fund event featuring tasty fare from Piaggio On Wheels, Tapa Boy LA, Chomp Chomp Nation and Rolling Sushi Van, as well as Wicked Wiches. Please see the below flyer for more information.
NO EXCUSES!! Come out and support these two events and help raise some funds for those who have been so tragically devastated by the disaster. I will be there, along with fellow bloggers and Yelpers at both locations! Come by and say hi!
