Frankie's Restaurant - Rebuild

Hello, we are the Bond family and we are from Austin, Texas. After hearing about the events and devastation that Hurricane Harvey in Texas we took a trip down to Port Aransas to volunteer and help in any way we could. After arriving we met a couple that was needing help clearing out some things in their damaged business, after learning about these people we found out that these were the owners of the loved and respected Frankie's kitchen.   After hearing their story and what tolls Harvey took on them we have decided to raise money to help them build a new and updated Frankie's kitchen, we will need to raise $250,000 in order to do this but we know anything is possible in the Great State of Texas!

Frankie's kitchen has been serving up delicious pancakes and lunch fare in Port Aransas, Texas for 9 years. Yelp as well as Trip Advisior and Facebook recommend this restraunt with high regard as a tourist destination, with 4-5 star ratings.

Frankie and her Husband Joe have been long term residents of Port Aransas since the 1960's. Port Aransas is also the place they met each other before becoming married in 1972 and have been happily married for 45 years and have been favored amongst locals and are most recognized by their hospitality and kindness you are met with upon entering their little green restaurant.

Port Aransas as well as surrounding cities were devistated recently with hurricane Harvey, among the victims of this tragedy, Frankie and Joe were left without their home and without a business to forge back to after returning back to the island. Let's join together to help bring back a cherished and loved restraunt and bring hope back to the community in the midst of this devistating event.
