Since Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on November 8, 2013, Team COOK has collaborated with our sister restaurants Twenty Manning Grill and Audrey Claire on several fundraising efforts. With the final scheduled event now behind us, we wanted to look back and determine just how many dollars had been raised. But before we give you the figures, we want to thank all of those who donated for their generosity. All funds raised have been given to Gawad Kalinga, a Philippine-based poverty alleviation and nation-building movement. If you would like to donate online, click here.
