Support the Kalessis Family's Restaurant Staff

We were devastated to learn that our dear friends, Catherine and Dimitrios Kalessis, have suffered a loss: Their family-owned Greek Restaurant in San Francisco, the Argentum Project, was heavily damaged by a fire on October 17, 2020.  Thankfully, no one was hurt, but the restaurant is now closed, probably through the holidays, traditionally their busiest time of year. They have insurance, which will pay for the rebuilding, but in the meantime they and their employees have no income. They know that many businesses are hurting during this time and are reluctant to ask for help, but they do need some.  

If you know Catherine, you know she’s always giving—cooking, volunteering, and donating her time. Here’s a chance to give back.  Please consider donating the money you would normally spend at the Argentum Project to help them pay the missing salaries during this time.  Any help would be much appreciated.  All money received will go directly to the family. Thank you.
