A Very Personal Hurricane Benefit Dinner

I hadn’t planned on posting anything this week. I didn’t want to distract attention from hurricane relief efforts (not to mention the election). But I just can’t let the following poignant notice from Nicholas Harary go unnoted. If you have ever enjoyed a meal at the hands of these folks, please support them now.

5-Course Dinner to Benefit Hurricane Sandy Victims

“Along with the rest of the Jersey Shore community, our hearts go out to everyone who has been impacted by the wrath of Hurricane Sandy. Our home and restaurant came out of the storm unscathed. Four members of our Restaurant Nicholas family were not as fortunate. Our Chef de Cuisine Nicholas Wilkins, Pastry Chef Kelly Kennedy, Captain Dominic Aviles and Food Runner Jay Bitner lost everything in the storm. Their homes, clothes, belongings…everything. I’m a firm believer that charity begins at home. That’s why this year, instead of our annual anniversary dinner, we will be holding a 5-course dinner with wine pairings to benefit these four individuals and their families. Our food purveyors and staff are donating their resources and time and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Wilkins, Kelly, Dominic and Jay. FEMA and The Red Cross do amazing things, but these four need immediate relief. This money will not change their lives, but it will go a long way to help them take the first steps of their new journey. We hope you will join us.”
