Poole’s To Host Special Dinner to Benefit Girl’s Family

I have a big smile on my face because I just got off the phone with Ashley Christensen, chef of Raleigh’s Poole’s Downtown Diner.  I always enjoy talking to Ashley, and she and I support a lot of similar causes.  But today, Ashley called to tell me about a very special dinner she’s cooking on Sunday, a five course dinner showcasing the offerings of Harland’s Creek Farm.  The meal will have a particular focus of the farm’s heirloom tomatoes.

That’s not what made me happy.  This is: Poole’s will be donating 100% of the profits from this meal to the family of Ashley Ramos-Hernandez, the six year old girl who was killed in the school bus crossing accident last week.

As I wrote earlier this week, Ashley Ramos-Hernandez’s parents are both restaurant workers in Raleigh, at Vivace and Coquette.  Both of those restaurants, and the other establishments in the Urban Food Group, are donating the tips received this Saturday to the young girl’s parents.  I appealed to the restaurant community to step up and support the family, and Ashley Christensen and Poole’s is certainly doing that.

So, after your dinner at Coquette, Vivace, Frazier’s or Porter’s on Saturday, consider dining at Poole’s on Sunday.  You’ll be very well fed, and you’ll help the healing process for a young family.
