Red Onion Burgers is donating† 20 percent of sales, 50 percent of credit card tips and 100 percent of cash tips collected at the restaurant this Wednesday, April 25, to a fund that will benefit families affected by the fire at the Taluswood Apartments Monday.
The Mountlake Terrace restaurant generally hosts fundraising efforts for non-profit organizations and charitable groups on Tuesdays. Red Onion owner Seaun Richards said this special Wednesday benefit was scheduled because they didnít want to wait for an open Tuesday to raise funds for families displaced by the apartment building fire.
The restaurant hopes to have a raffle at the same time to raise additional money.
More than a dozen apartment units in the Taluswood J Building were damaged by the Monday two-alarm fire. The Red Cross has been providing assistance to those who were displaced.
Red Onion Burgers is located at 23209-56th Ave. W. in Mountlake Terrace.
