Monthly fundraising event with vegan option, outdoor dining, live music, jewelry raffle

New features are being added to the August edition of the monthly refugee-support dinner series at Sadat’s Cuisine.

Hundreds of patrons have been enjoying the fundraising dinners served at Sadat’s Cuisine this year. Chef Sara Sadat, friendly servers, personal interaction and the atmosphere of fellowship among the diners combine to give a unique warmth to these evenings.

However, the dinner on Aug. 11 has four bonus features. A vegan option has been added, there’ll be some summertime seating outdoors, there’s a raffle of jewelry and there will be live music.

The main attraction remains the aromas coming from kitchen — of samosas and dishes like dopiaza lamb, beef kofta, quorma and chicken degy. The meal includes central-Asian basmati rice, salad and a sweet dessert, along with tea or coffee. The ingredients are locally sourced.

The price is $30, with $20 of that goes toward sponsorship of the refugees. As well, further contributions are welcome, and any donation of $50 or more is eligible for a tax receipt.

Patrons should phone 902-367-6631 or 902-213-7420 to reserve a time and specify the choice from the four main-course options. Sadat’s Cuisine is located at 223 University Ave. in Charlottetown.

The goal is within sight. The Afghan refugee couple, Sara Sadat’s parents, are expected to arrive in P.E.I. this fall, and the fundraising group feels good about having reached the two-thirds mark in what they need to support the immigrants through their first year.
