The Milwaukee Kitchen Cabinet to Host “Do Good with Food” Benefiting Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin
Six local restaurants from the organization to participate in fundraising event
MILWAUKEE – August 31, 2019 – The Milwaukee Kitchen Cabinet – a group of restaurateurs committed to growing opportunities in the restaurant industry and strengthening the communities where they live and work – will host a fundraising event which offers members of Milwaukee’s restaurant community an opportunity to give back to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
For the first time, restaurant partners from the Milwaukee Kitchen Cabinet will be teaming up to support Children’s. The six participating restaurants are Calderone Club, San Giorgio Pizzeria Napoletana, Vagabond, Water Street Brewery (downtown location), Aria at Saint Kate and Miller Time Pub & Grill. Each of these restaurants will donate fifty percent of all food and beverage sales from their lunch and dinner dining services on Saturday, August 31 to Children’s.
“The Calderone Club and San Giorgio Pizzeria are extremely honored to be a part of the Do Good With Food initiative,” says Gino Fazzari, owner of both restaurants and a Milwaukee Kitchen Cabinet board member. “We love working with Children’s and look forward to generating proceeds to support all of their amazing programs.”
“We are looking forward to Do Good With Food and are incredibly grateful to the Fazzari family and all of the participating restaurants for putting together such a fun event and fundraiser for Children’s,” said Meg Brzyski Nelson, president of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Foundation. “Behind every program Children’s delivers is the support we rely on from our donors and partners in the community, and the restaurants behind Do Good With Food are a great example of this. The money raised will help support all of the extra special things that help us wrap around families to ease and prevent the suffering of children.”
Guests who cannot dine-in during the fundraiser can donate to the mission online by visiting www.chw.org/DoGood.
