Eating for charity? I’ll drink to that
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.”
