Australia bushfire fundraiser @ Arthur’s
Jan 25 all-day

As we are an Australian influenced establishment (named after my Australian father Arthur!) we really wanted to take some action concerning the bushfires that have devastated Arthur’s homeland. On Saturday, January 25th we will be pledging 10% of sales from the entire day to a non-profit in Australia that supports and rehabilitates wildlife, particularly now with those affected by the fires.

Additionally, it happens to be Australia day on the 26th (technically on the same day as Aus is 17 or so hours ahead of us…) so we’re hosting our annual Australia Day wine dinner. Proceeds from this will as well be donated and seats are still available.

Lastly, if folks would like to donate directly we’ll gather any donations to add to the total we’re looking to raise.
