A local restaurant is pulling out all of the stops to commemorate and honor those who died on 9/11.
restaurant, 6025 Douglas Ave., will host a commemorative dinner on Sept. 11. All of the proceeds will be donated to the Wisconsin Alliance for Fire Safety Children’s Burn Camp.
Scott Sebastian, the owner of the restaurant and a former firefighter, said the Alliance puts on a summer camp for burn-injured kids.
“It's a place they can forget about their scars and just have fun. The director is a retired Deputy Fire Chief with the Milwaukee Fire Dept. and a former boss of mine,” he said.
The Alliance is a registered non-profit organization, http://www.wafs.org/summer_camp.asp All of the proceeds will be donated, Sebastian said.
“I'm trying to get our suppliers to pony up product for the cause so the exact menu is not set. However I can tell you it will consist of four courses with a seafood and steak choice for entrees. The cost also includes select beer, wine and rail cocktails,” he said.
In conjunction with the dinner, Sebastian will auction off a custom commemorative Chef's knife. The auction will take place live and on the Internet. Devin Thomas, one of America’s finest knife makers, is making the knife.
Cocktails will be served at 6 p.m., dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. and an auction will be held at 9 p.m. The cost is $91.10, and is all-inclusive.
