Restaurants raising funds for Asian tsunami appeals
PAULINE Andree of Scoffs restaurant may have lived in Australia for the past 40 years, but a part of her heart remains in her birthplace of Sri Lanka.
That is why on January 30, Scoffs will be joining 10 other restaurants at the Jetty in holding a special lunch to raise funds for various tsunami appeals.
The restaurants will be making a day of it, with staff donating their time and suppliers donating goods.
After lunch an auction will be held, with proceeds going to UNICEF, the Red Cross and a priest in Sri Lanka who is heading an aid group over there.
Restaurants opening their doors for lunch will be Scoffs, Tahruah, European, Oberoi, Tandoori Oven, Crying Tiger, Fountain, Foreshores, Fisherman's Katch, Watermark and the Pier Hotel.
Contact your favourite restaurant for menu details.
Coffs Harbour movie-goers this Sunday will also be doing more than just enjoying a couple of reality-free hours, with $1 from every ticket sold before noon going towards CARE Australia's tsunami appeal.
Films scheduled to be screened at Birch Carroll and Coyle Coffs Harbour cinema's will include Alexander, Lemony Snickets, Racing Stripes, The Incredibles, Meet the Fockers and Spongebob Squarepants.
