Sweet potato tostones, citrus soy salmon, a brown derby cocktail, and green tea creme brulee for dessert. Hopefully, these delicious-sounding offerings captured your attention. At Raleigh City Farm, we believe in bringing people together through food and during the month of July, we are teaming up with Eschelon Experiences to incorporate fundraising into these gatherings as well (luckily, we don’t mean a hot dog eating contest).
During the month of July, as part of Eschelon’s Giving Back program, each of their restaurants will offer you the option of adding a donation to your bill. 100% of your donation will go to Raleigh City Farm and directly support our mission to grow the next generation of farmers by connecting our community to sustainable agriculture. These restaurants include: Basan, Bare Bones, Cameron Bar and Grill, Edwards Mill Bar and Grill, and Mura.
The Haymaker, Eschelon’s unique cocktail bar inspired by fighters and 90s rappers, will offer a featured cocktail menu with $1 from every drink donated back to RCF. We recommend giving their “Sunflower” a try to beat the July heat or you can’t lose with their “Pistol Whip” made with Mezcal, Lime, Benedictine & Amaro Montenegro.
Eschelon Experiences has delivered exciting and unique hospitality concepts to the Raleigh-Durham area since its founding in 2006, all while giving back to the community every step of the way. In fact, Eschelon’s Founder and President, Gaurav “G” Patel was honored as 2017 Restaurateur of the Year award by the NC Restaurant and Lodging Association for his contributions to the community while improving the image of the food service industry. RCF is proud to partner with a group who shares the same social responsibility to the triangle community as we do. We hope you’ll join us over a delicious meal or for a drink during the month of July at any of those restaurants listed above. Just remember to add a little donation to your bill – every little bit counts and will help us reach our goal of raising $5,000 during Month of Giving.
Stay tuned for more ways to give back this summer, including our “Help us Build” Community Pavilion fundraising campaign during the month of August and our “Join the Club” Monthly Sustainer campaign during the month of September. As always, thanks for your continued support and generosity farm friends!
