Philly Chefs Unite to Help a Queen Village Restaurant Worker Fight Cancer

There's an all-you-can-eat-and-drink pig roast happening this Sunday at Southwark.

Last month, Peter Serpico threw a one-night Korean pop-up inside his namesake South Street restaurant to help raise money for his friend Theresa Lazzari who worked nearby at Southwark and Ambra, rolling out pastas in Chris D’Ambro’s kitchens. Lazzari was recently (and tragically) diagnosed with an invasive cancer, and Serpico threw the dinner to raise some money for her GoFundMe page.

Now, it’s D’Ambro’s turn to help.

This Sunday, June 4, from 2-8 p.m., D’Ambro will set up a pig roast on Southwark’s back patio with potluck dishes donated by some of Philly’s best restaurants: Kensington Quarters, Friday Saturday Sunday, Will, Serpico, Ela, Fork, Bistrot la Minette, Good King Tavern, Mission Taqueria, and Shola Olunloyo. Additionally, your ticket ($50, cash only) will get you all-you-can-drink Moscow Mules on tap courtesy of 13th Street Cocktails, plus wine and beer.

All proceeds will go to directly into Lazzari’s pocket to help her through her recovery.
