Eat­ing for char­ity? I’ll drink to that

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE crew at 2 Fish restau­rant will be show­ing sol­i­dar­ity with the lo­cal com­mu­nity and cel­e­brat­ing links with Ja­pan with a fundrais­ing lunch on next Satur­day.

The Wharf St restau­rant is host­ing a spe­cial Ja­pane­sethemed lunch to help raise money for vic­tims of the re­cent earth­quake and tsunami.

Two-thirds of the cover charge of $75 will go to char­ity - $25 to the Ja­panese Red Cross and an­other $25 to the Port Dou­glas fam­ily sup­port pro­gram.

“It’ll be a long lazy lunch, start­ing from 1pm,” as­sis­tant man­ager Ja­son Tol­ley said.

“It’s a three-course Ja­panese-style menu, with a drink on ar­rival.

“We’ll also have a bit of a quiz, lucky door prizes and a raf­fle to raise a bit more money.”

Head chef Tommy Young came up with the idea af­ter ar­riv­ing back from Ja­pan a week af­ter the earth­quake and tsunami.

“We’ve also got other staff who knew peo­ple af­fected by the disas­ter, and we thought we’d like to do our bit,” Mr Tol­ley said.

“We also wanted to help out the lo­cal com­mu­nity as well, and the fam­ily sup­port pro­gram is a great pro­gram run by the Port Dou­glas com­mu­nity cen­tre, but it’s badly un­der-funded.”
