For the first time ever, Black Sheep will be opening up their staff canteen to the public, and for a good cause: the humanitarian crisis developing in Turkey and Syria following the devastating earthquakes. Join them on February 20th for an exclusive fundraising dinner, spearheaded and prepared by powerhouse Chefs Teya Mikhael of Maison Libanaise and Palash Mitra (New Punjab Club and Rajasthan Rifles); a donation of HK$500 is suggested, with all proceeds from the evening going towards the relief efforts in the region. Expect delicious food and regional classics like the shorbat tarbiya (Syrian lemon chicken and lentil soup), Lebanese mezze, and vegetarian or beef manti.
Black Sheep restaurants have always been committed to bringing together communities and giving back in any way they can. Last September, they raised funds to support the relief efforts in Pakistan after the floods, exceeding well above their initial target of HK$250,000. On August 21st 2020, they donated all the proceeds from the Wine Feast at Maison Libanaise to the Lebanese Red Cross following the disastrous blast that rocked Beirut. Their generosity is second to none.
What are they fundraising for this time? To give you a little bit more context – the 7.8 magnitude earthquakes that struck Syria and Turkey in the early hours of Monday 6th of February have had a devastating toll: tens of thousands of people have lost their lives, with the toll rising daily as hope to rescue them from under the rubble fades. Families have been torn apart, kids orphaned and many are injured. The earthquakes have also left many men, women and children completely homeless and destitute, facing icy and harsh weather conditions.
