Restaurants, foundations to pull together May 15  help earthquake victims in Nepal

May 6, 2015

In the wake of the devastating earthquake that has killed thousands of people in Nepal, 15 coastal restaurants will each donate a portion of sales Friday, May 15, to Save the Children, an organization which is providing relief to the region. The Carl M. Freeman Foundation and the Matthew James Haley Trust will also donate funds.

Scott Kammerer, president and CEO of SoDel Concepts, which has eight participating restaurants, is spearheading the community effort. “This is a collaboration of leading southern Delaware businesses coming together quickly to help create a sustainable recovery,” he said. “Many of our employees have visited Nepal repeatedly - some in the past month - and this cause is dear to our hearts.”

Participating SoDel Concepts restaurants include Fish On in Lewes, Lupo Italian Kitchen and Papa Grande’s Coastal Taqueria in Rehoboth Beach, Matt’s Fish Camp and Bluecoast Seafood Grill in Bethany Beach, NorthEast Seafood Kitchen in Ocean View, and Catch 54 and Papa Grande’s Coastal Taqueria in Fenwick Island.

Other participating restaurants include DiFebo’s restaurants in Bethany Beach and Rehoboth Beach, and Fins Fish House & Raw Bar, Fins Ale House & Raw Bar, Claws Crab House and Nage, all in Rehoboth Beach.

“These local businesses might be in friendly competition with each other, but they responded quickly to support citizens of the world in a time of need,” Kammerer said. “We hope that people will dine in any of these restaurants May 15 with the knowledge that a portion of everything they order will help the victims of this tragic event.”
