Since Stowe Street Cafe began fundraising for World Central Kitchen (WCK) in April, we have collected $4,464.00 thus far. Our efforts will now continue with a very special Silent Art Auction & Ukrainian Community Dinner that you won't want to miss!
Grab a Ticket for our Community Dinner on June 23rd from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm to enjoy a delicious Ukrainian feast prepared by Chef Stephanie Biczko. Tickets are $90/person with only 20 tickets available and all proceeds being donated to World Central Kitchen to support their ongoing efforts to feed those in need in Ukraine and beyond.
Each Dinner Ticket includes: a three course meal including appetizers, main course, dessert and a non-alcoholic beverage. Cash bar with cold local beer + wine will also be available.
All are also invited to enjoy our Silent Art Auction on June 23rd from 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm right next door at Bridgeside Books with a wonderful selection of art, gifts, and gift certificates generously donated by a wide variety of local artists + businesses. Tickets are NOT required for the Silent Art Auction which is open to all!
100% of proceeds from the Dinner + Silent Art Auction will be donated to World Central Kitchen who has already served over 31 million meals across eight countries, not to mention their efforts to feed those in need in Buffalo, Uvalde, and all around the world.
If you haven't yet seen the newly released documentary "We Feed People" by Ron Howard on Disney+, we highly recommend it. You can view the trailer at: https://wck.org/wefeedpeople

Thanks to your help, we have raised $3,337.00 toward our $3,500.00 goal thus far with 100% of the proceeds going to World Central Kitchen which remains on the front lines providing food to families who are still in or are fleeing their country.

While it may seem like just a drop in the bucket on the grand scale, we know firsthand how many mouths $3,500 can help feed – especially after Chef Stephanie led her own effort to feed those in need across our own community at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020.
We'll post our final fundraising update and announce the raffle winners here on FPF and on the Stowe Street Café social media platforms on Sunday, May 1.
Thank you for your support, and stay tuned for an exciting update about Part 2 of our fundraising efforts to be announced very soon...
