Buonanotte Restaurant Supports the Farha Foundation's CA MARCHE With the Launch of the Weekly "APPUNTAMENTO 5 a 7" on Thursday August 27

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Aug. 20, 2009) - The Farha Foundation is proud to announce the support and engagement of Buonanotte Restaurant of the 17th edition of CA MARCHE.

Buonanotte is launching the first in a series of weekly 5 a 7 events to be held every Thursday. Coined "APPUNTAMENTO" the event will begin on Thursday August 27. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Farha Foundation. Buonanotte has created a signature cocktail called "MARCHE-TINI" made with Ciroc in honour of the Foundation.

A donation of $10 per person is requested and for this donation, Buonanotte will provide a free "MARCHE-TINI".

"We started Buonanotte at about the same time the Farha Foundation did seventeen years ago, and we feel we have an obligation to support organizations that give back to our community. We first became involved with the Foundation at their annual MASKARADE gala in February 2009 and after seeing the work they do, we wanted to continue our involvement with CA MARCHE, this year and for the coming years." said Massimo Lecas and Lino Lozza, Buonanotte co-owners.

For the entire month of August, Buonanotte will be donating $1 of each menu item to CA MARCHE and the entire staff will be wearing a red ribbon. Buonanotte will also participate in CA MARCHE on September 20 and has set a fundraising goal of $5,000.

The Farha Foundation is grateful to Buonanotte for their commitment to the Farha Foundation. Their support of the Farha Foundation contributes to our mission to better the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS in Quebec.
