Tampa’s Epicurean Hotel hosts Hurricane Florence relief fundraiser September 20th & September 21st

There will be a Hurricane Florence fundraiser on September 20th and September 21st at Elevage inside the Epicurean Hotel in South Tampa. The proceeds will go to the American Red Cross with funds earmarked for Hurricane Florence relief.

Elevage Executive Chef Chad Johnson says, “It may only be a drop in the bucket, but we hope that our friends in Tampa can come share a meal that will help provide a small measure of relief for our friends in the Carolinas.”

The damage from the storm is estimated to be between $17 billion and $22 billion dollars. It is among the 10 costliest hurricanes ever. 32 people have died so far from the storm, many due to flooding and falling trees.

The 3-course Prix-Fixe menu fundraiser will cost $35. Complimentary Valet is available until 7PM. The menu is available Thursday and Friday from 5PM-10PM.

Their sister restaurant Haven will also donate all happy hour sales on Thursday and Friday to the cause.
