Well, Rocco Biale is really stepping up to the proverbial plate. He’s holding a fundraiser Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to help people in Haiti devastated by the 7.0 earthquake on January 12. The confirmed death toll now stands at 111,481, and more than 600,000 have been left homeless.
According to an e-mail sent by City Councilman Kish Rajan, if you dine in or take-out from Rocco’s for lunch or dinner these three days, Biale will donate 25 percent of the proceeds to the Red Cross.
Twenty-five percent! That’s very generous, especially in these tough times for restaurateurs.
“Sadly the devastation in Haiti continues, and the human toll is just incredible,” Rajan writes. “And while millions (including many of you) have already made generous donations, the need continues to be enormous. So, we wanted to create another opportunity to make a difference.”
You can also leave donations at Rocco’s, which the restaurant will forward to the Red Cross.
Rocco’s is located at 2909 Ygnacio Valley Rd in Walnut Creek , in the Encina Grande shopping center. For more info call (925) 947-6105 or visit http://www.roccospizzeria.com/
“Please bring your family, friends and neighbors to Rocco’s one day next week for great food and atmosphere, and to support this most worthy cause. Let’s bring our community together and show what we can do!”
