Just chatted with chef Johnny Chu of Sens, and he's excited about a special event he's hosting next week, on Monday the 16th.
He says 100 percent of the proceeds from the night's dinner service (5 to 10 p.m.) will be donated to Free Arts of Arizona, a non-profit organization that reaches out to abused, at-risk, and homeless children through the creative arts. Call 602-340-9777 for a reservation.
Yep, it's that easy to give to charity. Come in for dinner, and pay by cash or check to Free Arts.
Chu has sponsored art shows for the organization in the past, but the economy and budget cuts have been especially hard on it lately. "I kind of want to go out on a limb this year," he says.
