Local Stars Serve Dinner to Benefit Homeless

Local Stars Serve Dinner to Benefit Homeless

Sports stars and local T.V. personalities will be serving dinner at the HuHot Mongolian Grill tonight to support Blessings Under the Bridge.

 

Jessica Kovac and her husband Mike started serving brown bag meals to the area's homeless in 2007. Since then it has grown into a weekly meal service and non-profit. Their brown bags include sandwiches and home made baked goods, as well fruit and toiletries. Each recipient is offered a bottle of water and coffee or cocoa.

 

“Blessings Under the Bridge has just boomed so much,” says Kovac, adding that she and her husband never expected their weekly ministry to become a non-profit. BUTB estimates that it takes only $12.00 to provide brown bags for ten homeless.

 

Buffalo Wild Wings coming to Spokane Valley

Buffalo Wild Wings coming to Spokane Valley

 

You've undoubtedly seen the commercials if you've ever watched a sporting event, yet there has never been a Buffalo Wild Wings in the Spokane area. But the wait is soon to be over.

Buffalo Wild Wings confirmed to KXLY Wednesday that they intend to have a restaurant open in the Spokane Valley by the end of 2013.

“We are delighted to let you know we will be bringing our award winning wings and sauces to Spokane in the third quarter,” Leslie Bryant of Buffalo Wild Wings said in an email. “We will bring approximately 120 new jobs to the area.”

A public records request found that the company submitted a grading request permit for the land located at 14702 East Indiana Avenue, near the Spokane Valley Mall.

Buffalo Wild Wings touts 16 signature sauces – ranging from Sweet BBQ to Blazin' – and five seasonings. While waiting for the Spokane Valley branch to open, you can get more acquainted with the restaurant at the company's website.

Over 50 restaurants are participating from the West Plains to Liberty Lake, with the majority being in Downtown Spokane.

Here are the restaurants participating in the Spokane Valley/Liberty Lake area:

Jenny's Cafe raising funds for Haiti orphans

Jenny's Cafe raising funds for Haiti orphans

Jenny Bennett serves up a smile to everyone who walks through the doors of her restaurant, Jenny’s Café. She knows most of them by name. That plate of home fries smothered in country gravy with two eggs over-easy is delivered to your table with a side of friendly conversation.And since no one leaves hungry after a breakfast at Jenny’s, it’s no surprise to discover that the restaurant is raising money to feed and care for children in Haiti.

In Haiti, the hunger crisis is a rising concern. According to the World Food Program, malnutrition affects 24 percent of children under the age of 5, and the number in need of food assistance doubled after the earthquake. Unfortunately, hunger is not the only issue plaguing kids in Haiti.

Bennett is part of a small group from Spokane planning to visit Danita’s Children, an orphanage located in Ouanaminthe, Haiti. Whether they are asked to help build a medical facility, cut fabric for hundreds of uniforms, take chickens to families in the community or just love on the kids, they will do so with the aid of the Spokane community.

Jenny’s Café is hosting an Empty Bowls event and silent auction. An Empty Bowls event is designed to raise money for organizations striving to end hunger by selling handcrafted bowls served with a soup or simple meal. The money raised will help send the group from ONE*Church in Spokane Valley to Haiti to lend their helping hands. ‘‘Hope For Haiti’’ T-shirts will also be sold at the event, with the proceeds going directly to the orphanage and community in Haiti.

One of the Spokane area’s longest-established fast food restaurants is celebrating an impressive 53 years in business, by giving you the fries on September 24th. Owned and operated for 37 years by Joe Genova and named after his eldest son, Ron’s was one of the area’s first fast-food eating establishments. The original building was designed by Joe Genova and built on the land where his childhood home once stood. Since its inception, Ron’s Drive-Inn has been known for fresh ingredients and friendly service.

"We are celebrating another year of great food and service— and honoring one of the Spokane area’s best-loved landmarks," said owner, Denny Hegewald. "It is hard to believe that we have been serving the Valley for 53 years".

There is no room for negativity in Jessica Sharpe's life. The 20-year-old Liberty Lake woman survived a head-on crash that shattered her bones from the pelvis down and seared her left arm with chemical burns, but six weeks and 13 surgeries later she's all smiles.

Jessica is the type of person who humbles you with her positivity. You'll be hard pressed to find anything to complain about after meeting her and learning about what she's been through.

If you haven't had a chance to try Sushi Sakai in the Spokane Valley, you should!  Being a avid sushi fan myself, I've had the opportunity to visit Sushi Sakai on multiple occasions.  The thing I enjoy the most about Sushi Sakai is the sushi has a very fresh, honest, feel and taste to it that you don't get at some "Bigger" restaurants.  Sushi Sakai is a Sushi/Sake Bar located at 11520 East Sprague Ave.  Hours are 11am to 9pm Tues-Wed, 11am to 10pm Thurs-Fri, 12pm to 10pm Sat, 12pm to 8pm Sun.  Rolls range from as little as $3.95 on up to $12.95.  What ever styl
