After tallying up all the donations, proceeds from the food and an extra boost from Tanya’s Soup Kitchen who donated to the cause, the final number was $11,628.86. I’m not sure anybody would have guessed that. The money will now go to help provide food, medicine and housing to those affected in Lebanon’s Beirut explosion.
N & J Cafe located at 5600 E Lincoln was packed even before the start of the event at 11am. Some people waited an 1-3 hours for their food but did not mind at all knowing it was all for a good cause; lots of patience and love on display Saturday. Many people weren’t even able to get food and N & J Cafe wants to apologize for that.
They made a post letting people know that between Tuesday, August 18 and Thursday, August 20, people can come by for a meal on them. I’ll add if you have the funds, pay and leave a good tip. The restaurant essentially gave up an entire day’s revenue for a good cause. This would be a great way of paying it forward to them.
Kudos to not just the restaurants but to everybody who showed up to support.
