RedRossa Italian Grille is celebrating its grand opening with a month-long fundraising effort to benefit individuals and families impacted by the May 22, 2011 tornado by donating $1 of every lunch or dinner entrée purchased from July 1 to July 31, 2011.

"As a new neighbor, we felt the best way to introduce ourselves to the community would be to support a cause that has touched our hearts," Bill Bock, General Manager of RedRossa Italian Grille.

RedRossa Italian Grille is celebrating its grand opening with a month-long fundraising effort to benefit Minnesota Helps - North Minneapolis Recovery Fund through The Minneapolis Foundation. From July 1 to July 31, 2011, $1 of every lunch or dinner entrée purchased will be donated for recovery and support of those most affected by this tragedy.

The Minnesota Helps - North Minneapolis Recovery Fund supports the immediate and long-term needs (housing, food, and other services) of the individuals and families in North Minneapolis impacted by the May 22, 2011 tornado. Since 1915, The Minneapolis Foundation has partnered with generous individuals and families, effective nonprofits, engaged civic leaders and other people just like you to strengthen our community through charitable giving.

“Our hearts go out to the residents who have had huge losses and been displaced by the tornado,” said Bill Bock, General Manager of RedRossa Italian Grille. “As a new neighbor, we felt the best way to introduce ourselves to the community would be to support a cause that has touched our hearts.”

RedRossa Italian Grille will be presenting a check from proceeds of the fundraising event to The Minneapolis Foundation and will encourage guests to make additional donations through the website giveMN.org .

Through giveMN.org, contributions to the North Minneapolis Recovery Fund will be pooled and then allocated jointly by the sponsoring organizations to nonprofits that are providing support to those most affected by this tragedy – both immediately and in the coming months. One hundred percent of all donations will be redistributed to provide financial support where they are urgently needed.
