Local Bistro Hosts Charity Dinner. A Night of Fine Dining, Fun and Fundraising.
Award Winning Les 2 Garçons Bistro in Middle Lane, Crouch End, hosts a fantastic charity dinner in aid of local charity AFK - Working With Disability.
On Monday, 9 October, 40 happy and extremely well-fed guests got together at Les 2 Garçons for a sumptuous 4-course meal to raise funds for local disability charity AFK (Action For Kids). Les 2 Garçons not only donated the space for the evening but also covered food costs and staffing, with 100% of the ticket revenue going to the charity. Fine art photographer Allan Jenkins also displayed his work across the restaurant, with 20% of sales donated to AFK. The evening kicked off with a drinks reception sponsored by Champagne and Chateaux Ltd and a selection of delicious amuse bouchées.
AFK’s CEO took to the floor to speak about the charity’s work and impacts and its new services for children and young people with disabilities and autism, followed by a few words about why he supports the charity from host for the evening and major supporter, Christopher Holder. Diners were then treated to a mouthwatering menu of mixed entrees, Boeuf en Croute, Pear Tarte Tatin and a raspberry souffle.
Tickets for the event, a fun game of heads and tails led by our entertaining Les 2 Garçons Maître d, JC, along with donations and a silent auction, raised a phenomenal £8,000 for AFK’s work.
David Coe (CEO AFK)
“We at AFK were absolutely thrilled to be invited by Les 2 Garçons for a really enjoyable charity evening with great food and company. Huge thanks to Christopher Holder for hosting, Jan Reid and Claire Lewis for organising, and Rob, JC and staff at Les 2 Garçons for the kitchen magic!"
“Since becoming involved with AFK back in 2012 and through MariaMarina Foundation, we have funded 111 items of life-changing mobility equipment and equipped 100s of young people with the skills and confidence to get on the ladder to employment. I wish the charity continued success in its tireless endeavours to help those in need. The work they do is massively impactful and vital in today’s society.”
