Chefs' Party For Nathanial Zimet, Sunday Evening

You probably heard what happened to Chef Nathanial Zimiet a couple of months ago. After another night of great cooking at Boucherie, his four-star restaurant in Carrollton, he was attacked and shot at close range. He is expected to recover, and is coming along fine, But he was without health insurance, and the bills are enormous.

The chefs of New Orleans--always giving to the community through the grazing fundraisers they volunteer for all year long--are quickest to respond when the need is within their ranks. Thirty-four of them will be at Howlin' Wolf this Sunday night, cooking and serving. Here's the list:
Boucherie
La Petite Grocery
Three Muses
Iris
Patois
Crescent Pie & Sausage Co
Martinique Bistro
Lilette
Dante's Kitchen
St James Cheese Co
Satsuma
Cafe Rani

The chefs start cooking and the bar (included in the price) will open for the patron party at five Sunday afternoon. At nine, the event shifts to The Night Owl Benefit Show, a music event with cash bar, until 1 a.m. The bands include Hot 8 Brass Band, The Revivalists, MyNameIsJohnMichael, Supagroup, Happy Talk Band, and others. The food needs of the Night Owl partiers will be attended to by the Cue Crawl, therolling purple barbecue truck that Nathanial ran before opening Boucherie.

Since I can't be in NO for the party, is there a place donations can be sent?

I'm sure it's appreciated.
Wouldn't it be great if every Roadfood Subscriber just sent a buck? How much would that raise Mr. Rushmore?
