Basil Cafe, the newest addition to restaurant choices on East Riverside Boulevard, will hold a grand opening fundraiser on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 7 and 8. All proceeds from these two nights will be donated to RocVale Childrens Home, a division of Milestone, Inc. and to the Harlem Community Center.
We are excited about becoming a part of this community. To show our commitment to the people here, we are giving something back to help local children, said Basil Cafe owner, George Vavaroutsos.
