Fork the Fire lends a hand

Two local favorite restaurants; Heidi's and Blackbird were recently burned down by a fire. While each restaurant owner wants the business to come to them, they all usually watch for each other as well.

So after both restaurants burned down, Anoush Ansari of Hemishpere Restaurant Partners, along with other restaurants in the communtiy, came together and did Fork the Fire benefit to raise money for each restaurant.

The fundraiser was held at Mission restaurant, which is a part of the Hemishpere Restaurant Partners, and over 80 businesses made donations to help the cause.

It is pretty cool seeing all these restaurants and businesses come together to hep each other out like that.
