Above / Mesón Sabika is partnering with Red Cross to host a fundraiser on Monday, August 7, 2017.  The restaurant will donate 100 percent of sales from lunch, afternoon refreshments and dinner to flood relief.

All day Monday, August 7,  Mesón Sabika, a Spanish tapas restaurant and event venue in Naperville, is donating 100 percent of the restaurant’s sales to the American Red Cross of Chicago and Northern Illinois to support the disaster relief efforts for the recent flooding in northern Illinois.

Open from 11:30AM to 10PM, the restaurant has a one-day goal of raising and donating $15,000.

As folks mingled during the lunch hour, they observed Meson Sabika had attracted many guests from Naperville as well as ones from Batavia and all the way from Florida, just in one of the several dining rooms serving lunch.

Some guests came to support the fundraiser. Others came because they “always enjoy dining at Meson Sabika,” adding they were happy to know that their lunch check would go to an important cause supported by the restaurant.

Reservations for dinner can be made online at mesonsabika.com or by calling (630) 983-3000.

Mesón Sabika is located at 1025 Aurora Avenue.

Red Cross is grateful!

According to Stephanie Patton, a representative from the American Red Cross of Chicago & Northern Illinois, who granted an interview to NCTV17 during the lunch-hour seating, nearly 300 Red Cross workers have been providing services since the flooding began.

As she recounted facts, she noted workers and volunteers have…

–       Served more than 17,500 meals and snacks

–       Distributed more than 36,000 relief and healthcare items

–       Provided more than 90 overnight stays in six emergency shelters

–       Handled more than 1,000 calls from individuals seeking help

–       Provided nearly 860 health services and emotional support contacts.

Flooding events create a wide range of emergency needs that require a large network of individuals and organizations banding together to ensure communities and their residents receive assistance for their unmet needs.

On behalf of the Red Cross, Patton expressed her gratitude to all the local, state and federal agencies that so far have helped coordinate relief efforts in northern Illinois. The Red Cross also appreciates the generosity of Hossein Jamali, she said, for again opening his doors at Meson Sabika, welcoming guests in support of another important fundraiser. And this time the communities in need are in his own backyard, Patton added.
