We are inviting the public to join us at Dacha Beer Garden in Navy Yard, Southeast Washington, DC this Sunday, December 6, 2020 from 12 to 8pm for a fiesta to raise funds for the typhoon relief in the Philippines. Reservations are available for parties up to 6 on Resy and are highly encouraged. 79 Potomac Ave SE Washington, DC
Chef Jerome Grant of Jackie Restaurant and Dacha Beer Garden will be joined by fellow Fil-Am chefs Paolo Dungca, Javier Fernandez of Kuya Ja's, and Tom Cunanan to create a fun "Christmas in the Philippines"-themed BBQ in the outdoor beer garden (in compliance with DC Covid-19 safety regulations.) Family-style food sampler boxes will be available for pre-order, takeaway, and delivery and à la carte ordering will also be available. A full pop-up menu will be previewed on social media in the coming days. Special Noche Buena Ensaymadas will also be available for pre-order and à la carte, baked in-house by Jackie pastry chef, Stephanie Milne. Proceeds from food sales will be donated directly.
The donations will be split between two organizations: Handang Tumulong, a New Jersey-based Filipino-American nonprofit dedicated to distributing relief funds to natural-disaster affected areas in the Philippines, and Project Pag-asa, a Philippines-based nonprofit focusing on helping vulnerable orphaned and endangered children in the Philippines access safe spaces and education. In addition to their main mission, Project Pag-asa (Tagalog for "Hope") has been distributing emergency relief supplies, mostly food, in the regions of Albay, Rizal, and Cagayan in response to the Typhoon disasters.
