Dine at Candle 79 and Make Dreams Come True for Compassionate Kids!

Emergency Rescue FundIt’s always a beautiful experience when city kids (some of whom have never seen a farm animal in person) can visit Farm Sanctuary. Students from the Lexington School for the Deaf in New York City are trying to raise funds to make their dream to meet the animals come true with a Fundraiser for Deaf Students at Candle 79 on Wednesday, April 30 from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. Simply make reservations for that evening at Candle 79, and a portion of your bill will go directly toward the children’s visit to Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, New York. Additional donations for the kids can also be made at the restaurant.seitan chimichurri
