Cocina Candela is hosting a Hurricane Maria Relief Fundraiser on Wednesday, October 4. Come for a great meal and support the cause at the same time. Cocina Candela will be donating 100% of all sales to relief efforts in Puerto Rico. Fundraiser is from noon to 9 p.m. with a set menu for $50 per person.

Owner Kenny Candelaria writes on Instagram:

“I consider being born in Puerto Rico a blessing…seeing my homeland and my people so destroyed hurts my soul…not being there to help and still not having heard from my father, sister, aunts and other family makes me feel helpless…this is why I am having a relief fundraiser on October 4th and am asking for everyone who can come out to support to do so and if you can’t come, please find another way to help. We will need to do more, but let’s start somewhere!”
