Black Restaurant Group Has Fundraising Initiative to raise $200,000 to Support Juvenile Diabetes

The Black Restaurant Group has announced a fundraising initiative at all four of their popular neighborhood restaurants, Black Market Bistro, BlackSalt, Black’s Bar & Kitchen, and Addie’s. A series of fundraising events have been planned as well as other promotions such as happy hour offerings, drink and wine specials and featured menu items. All Black Restaurant Group restaurants will be donating 100% of the proceeds from their signature mussel dish, Addie’s Mussels to the support of juvenile diabetes.

This Sunday, October 24th from 1 p.m.-6 p.m., Black Market Bistro will host "Pig Out for Diabetes".  Tickets for the event are $45 if purchased before the event, and $50 at the door.  Kids under 12 can attend for $20, under five eat free.

The event will feature a Bar-B-Que Rib Competition outside along with a silent auction, art show and children’s events. Two live bands- Blue Book Value and 2nd Story Band will be performing. They will also be grilling burgers, hot dogs, BBQ pork, as well as providing side dishes and desserts.  Beer and wine will also be available. Judging takes place at 3 PM.

The Black Restaurant Group has set a goal to raise $200,000 to build a new state of the art kitchen that is part of a $5 million expansion at Children’s National Medical Center to support children with diabetes.
