In response to the recent tragedy in Haiti, Campagne in Seattle invites you and your friends  to attend a fundraising three-course Bouillabaisse dinner on Monday night, January 25th, 2010.

For dinner and wine pairing they suggest a minimum donation of $100 per person, 100% of which will be donated to Doctors Without Borders, a charity who has had a presence in Haiti for the past 19 years.

Campagne’s  service and kitchen staff have volunteered their time to make this as effective a fundraiser as possible.  Even the suppliers of the restaurant have offered to support with donations of product and the Inn at the Market will generously  match the first $5,000 that is raised.

First course: Salade verte au chèvre chaud

Second course: Chef Daisley Gordon’s renowned Bouillabaisse

Third course: Galette des Rois

Wines will be donated for the first and second courses.

Seatings begin at 5:30pm. Space is limited so please make your reservation soon to help make a real difference for the victims of this tragedy.  Ph# 206.728.2800.
