Celestin says customers have shown a lot of compassion in the past week.
“There’s been such an outpour of support and sympathy. People are donating in droves. Yes, we’ve had quite a big response and people are also coming in expressing their condolences for the family members that I’ve lost to the quake.”
Tonight's event is from 5 PM to 8 PM at Celestin’s restaurant…located near the corner of 18th and K Streets.
American Red Cross representatives are expected to be available to take donations and laptops will be set up to make on-line contributions to various relief groups.
