Reminder: Benefit this Sunday for Jade West Café family

It’s in the West Seattle Weekend Lineup, even though it’s happening in Wallingford, because it’s for a man who’s meant a lot to many West Seattleites – Jade West Café owner Wah Wong. This Sunday is the first major benefit for Wah and son Jason Wong – both seriously injured when a drunk driver hit them last December – and their family. It involves a three-course lunch at Perché No Pasta and Vino, 1319 North 49th (map), with live music and a silent auction, for $35/person. The driver who hit the Wongs has since pleaded guilty and been sentenced, but the family is left with financial challenges, and particularly for Jason, who lost part of a leg, a long road to recovery. Sunday’s your chance to support them. Here’s a Facebook invite for the event.

    it was an amazing event. I’d say about 150+ people showed up. What I didn’t know was that Jason’s best friend is the son of the owners of Perche’No. These amazing young adults organized the whole shindig. Wah and his family were truly moved by the outpouring of love. The family is healing slowly and surely, and their outlook and optimism is truly inspiring.

      We’ll be posting our story within the next hour or so. Some technical challenges have put us about two hours behind for the night after a very busy day – TR
