When tragedy strikes the Philly dining community, chefs and restaurateurs come together to help. And when a huge fire gutted Bridget Foy’s[1] three weeks ago, it was only a matter of time before friends and neighbors stepped up to lend a hand.

On Wednesday, November 15th from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m., more than 30 restaurants will participate in a community dinner under The Shambles at Headhouse Square to raise funds for fire relief efforts. Proceeds from the dinner will go to displaced Bridget Foy’s employees as well as Saved Me and the American Red Cross’s Red Paws program, which assist displaced pets and their owners.

In addition to bites from the still-growing list of restaurants, the dinner will include a beer and wine tasting, plus live music from Mikey Junior Band. There will also be a silent auction, with items donated by neighborhood businesses.

Tickets to the fundraising dinner are $50 each, and you can get yours here[2]. Check out the full list of participating restaurants below, and check the Facebook event[3] for additions to the roster over the next 2 days.
