Two Eastlake restaurants offer ways to eat and help Haiti

Two Eastlake restaurants are offering you a way to dine and donate to help victims of the Haiti earthquake. Both of these events end on Sunday:

  • Grand Central Bakery, 1616 Eastlake Ave. E.: When you eat at Grand Central (8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday), add a donation to Mercy Corps to your bill and the bakery will match it. They hope to raise $10,000, which includes a $5,000 donation from Grand Central.
  • Eastlake Bar and Grill, 2947 Eastlake Ave. E.: The fundraiser here is that $1 from the purchase of every half-pound burger will go to the Red Cross Haiti Relief program. The fundraiser will be going on at all four of the Neighborhood Grills locations: Eastlake, Greenlake, Southlake and Lake Forest. They’re open until 1 a.m. Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
