Frankie Tomatto's Italian Buffet to Raise $30K Through Meal Proceeds Friday, Nov 29

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 25, 2013) - Only now is the full extent of Typhoon Haiyan on the Philippines clear: a death toll over 4000 and 13 million affected, including 4.9 million children.

A Relief Fundraiser will take place at Frankie Tomatto's Italian Buffet on Friday, November 29 to raise $30,000. All proceeds from meals that day will go to the Canadian Red Cross. This is the largest single restaurant contribution to Canada's relief cause.

"We've served 9 million meals in our 19 years and the Filipino community has been a cornerstone of our customer base," said Hal Roback, restaurant owner. "One third of our staff are of Filipino descent. Come enjoy a great lunch or dinner, and support the community during this crisis."

Frankie Tomatto's is a 425-seat Italian restaurant at 7225 Woodbine Ave, 2 lights north of Steeles, in Markham.
