Besides serving up delicious food to Sydney folks, Mexican restaurant El Camino Cantina and Japanese hot-spot Saké Jr don't have a lot in common. But this month, the Urban Purveyor Group restaurants will be putting their culinary differences behind, when they strive to raise money for cancer one dish at a time.
The signature 'Sake Jr bowl' at Saké Jr has quickly established itself as a crowd favourite among CBD workers and shop-goers at Westfield Sydney. And now there's an excuse to ditch your soggy sandwiches and fuel up on the Asian dish at lunchtime, as $1 from every bowl purchased will be donated to support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The guys at Tex-mex diner El Camino Cantina will be supporting U.G.L.Y (Understanding Generous Likeable You) Bartender of the Year 2016 - the Leukaemia Foundation's annual hospitality fundraising competition. The team have produced a limited edition U.G.L.Y margarita cocktail, donating every $1 or $2 (depending on the size) to charity. And every $80 raised within that money will go towards one night's accommodation for a blood cancer patient and their carer, giving families a chance to be closer to their treatment centres.
This inspring cause will only be happening during the month of October, so make sure you get down quick. To check it out, visit:
