HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WWBT) – Fundraising efforts continue across metro-Richmond to help those in Ukraine.
Restaurants across the area are chipping in by donating their proceeds to support this ongoing cause.
The non-profit “Lift Up Ukraine” was created less than a month ago, and it is already seeing a huge number of folks and restaurants wanting to help with the humanitarian efforts.
On any given day, The Grapevine Greek & Italian Restaurant in Henrico is swarmed with foodies. Owners hope that will continue on Tuesday night.
“It’s going to be a busy night,” said Michael Trak, co-owner of the restaurant. “So, we’re going to be running around, yes, ma’am.”
The Grapevine is one of four restaurants/breweries across metro-Richmond that will be donating proceeds to Lift Up Ukraine.
“We’ve got a thing for helping, and we have a lot of friends and older staff from Ukraine,” said Mitchell Trak, General Manager and Co-owner of The Grapevine.
Meanwhile, Tony’s Italian Restaurant will hold its fundraiser on March 30, Lickinghole Creek Brewery has its efforts scheduled for April 2, and Balkan Restaurant will also donate proceeds on April 5.
