To cover the legal and application costs associated with its effort to win approval for continuing to operate as a restaurant at 17th and Galer, Volunteer Park Cafe announced Tuesday that it is holding a fundraiser dinner and art auction in November. You can add it to your calendar along with two other upcoming dinner dates to support good Capitol Hill causes.
The VPC benefit’s details are still being worked out but we’re told that it will be hosted in West Seattle at The Sanctuary. No word on cost to attend, yet. You can check out http://www.alwaysfreshgoodness.com/ to learn more. Earlier this month, CHS reported that the cafe had spent more than $18,000 just in fees to the City of Seattle during the year-long process to win the approval. We’ve sent a mail to the representative for the Volunteer Park Neighbors group to ask if they’re planning any benefit to cover that group’s costs from the process.
COME TO THE TABLE
Fundraiser Auction & Dinner for Volunteer Park Cafe
Save the Date! November 7th, 6pm
Feast, fete and celebrate in support of Volunteer Park Cafe on our quest for a happy neighborhood restaurant. The last year presented us with some battles, but we did not give up! Neighborhood love! As some of you may know, for over a year the cafe has been going through a rezoning process with the city of Seattle to change its use from grocery to a restaurant. We are thrilled to say we have just received proper permitting! However, the expenses with attorneys and the city have piled up and now YOU can help. We would like to celebrate, send thanks and ask for your amazing support.
We hope to see you at the table.
Save the Date! November 7th, 6pm
