If you're eating breakfast at 12 Baltimore in the Hotel Phillips this morning, you're raising funds for Kansas City's Good Samaritan Project. That also goes for lunch or dinner at 27 other local restaurants, ranging from Hamburger Mary's in the Crossroads to Eden Alley Cafe on the Country Club Plaza. Today, from 6 a.m. until past midnight, 28 participating restaurants in the metro (see complete list below) have pledged at least 25 percent of the day's gross to the Good Samaritan Project, the city's oldest AIDS service organization.
If you have a craving for pizza today, you should probably order Pizza Hut. The mega pizza chain is donating 15 percent of all sales today to the United Way Tornado Disaster Fund to help the relief effort in Joplin.
The fundraising effort includes pizza shops in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas, and applies for carry-out, delivery and dine in.
The second Four Stars for Lauren fundraiser will be tonight at the Boulevard Brewery Event Space (2501 Southwest Boulevard). The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. and will feature more than 20 restaurants and eight wine, beer and beverage vendors -- who have all donated their products and services for the fundraiser.
It's also a chance to celebrate the life of Lauren Chapin -- the well-known restaurant critic at The Kansas City Star -- who passed away suddenly in December of 2008.
The proceeds from the event will go towards the BrenMaren College Fund for Chapin's daughters as well as the Lauren Chapin Memorial Scholarship Fund at Johnson County Community College. A donation will also be made in Chapin's name to the Midwest Transplant Network.
The event is $65. You can purchase tickets at fourstars.eventbrite.com until 11 a.m. or by calling Jenny Kinkaid at 816-550-4382.
