Boat Street Fundraiser to Benefit Employee’s Relatives in Japan

Where to go next Monday evening.

The feeling of helplessness about the Japan situation is not good, is it? Here’s something you can do:

As Chris Werner mentioned in his roundup of restaurants helping Japan, Renee Erickson, chef and owner of Boat Street Cafe, is hosting a fundraiser party to raise money for the family of longtime BSC employee Sachie Mikawa.

Mikawa’s mother and sister back in Japan lost their home—apparently their entire village was destroyed by the tsunami—and they are currently living in a shelter.

Helping them get back on their feet is simple, really. Head to Boat Street on Monday, March 21 and pay $25 at the door, then go inside and party. There will be food and wine plus items to buy including art work, restaurant vouchers, cookbooks, and specialty foods.

The fundraiser starts at 5pm and ends at 10pm. I suggest you arrive early to make sure you get in—small restaurant, big hearts (can’t lose).
