Food-focused Haiti fundraisers popular, drawing major cash

Taylor's Kitchen is sending a hefty contribution to Doctors Without Borders thanks to the wildly successful Haitian Relief Dinner held Sunday.

The dinner raised more than $7,000 for the medical humanitarian organization, said Danny Johnson, owner of the restaurant and Taylor's Market.

"We were pretty stunned with the response," he said.

The fundraiser's success has Johnson thinking of making charitable dinners a yearly event.

"If there's not a humanitarian crisis, then we could donate the funds to a local charity," Johnson said.

Speaking of fundraisers, another event this weekend is hoped to raise money for Haiti earthquake relief.

This time, it's sandwiches in the suburbs.

The El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce, Lakehills Covenant Church and Subway are holding a fundraiser to benefit the American Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. The event will be held at the Subway in the Town Center, 2023 Vine St., Suite 104, El Dorado Hills.

Volunteers will be donating their time and sandwich-making skills that day, when 100 percent of the sales will go directly to the Red Cross' relief effort, according to a news release from the chamber of commerce.
