6th Annual “Restaurants for Raphael House” Fundraiser

Portland Culinary Community Shows Support for Domestic Violence Survivors During 6th Annual Dine-out Event

On Wednesday, May 20th more than 25 local eateries will donate a portion of their proceeds to Raphael House of Portland, in an incredible show of support for survivors of domestic violence! For community members, getting involved is as easy and delicious as dining at any participating restaurant location in Portland and Lake Oswego.

With area favorites like Mother’s Bistro, The Country Cat, ¿Por Que No?, Cocotte Bistro, Accanto, Pacific Pie Co., Dove Vivi, Cheryl’s on 12th, Smallwares, and Ya Hala involved in “Restaurants for Raphael House”, the hardest part for diners will be choosing which great place to visit first.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to show local businesses how much their giving back is appreciated by the community, especially in connection with domestic violence, which too often remains an unspoken issue,” says Raphael House of Portland’s Development Associate, Amanda Ives.

Community members are encouraged to order generously, enjoy meals at as many involved eateries as possible on May 20th, and post on social media about their delicious support using #R4RH.

A full list of businesses generously participating in the event can be found online at http://raphaelhouse.com/events/raphael_house_special_events/restaurants-for-raphael-house/.

Every $100 raised during this 6th Annual “Restaurants for Raphael House” fundraiser will provide one safe night in shelter for a woman or her child escaping partner violence.
