Acero in Maplewood
Earthquakes on Sunday, May 20, and Tuesday, May 29, in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy have killed at least 24. That region is close to the hearts of Jim Fiala and Adam Gnau, owner and chef, respectively, of Acero (7266 Manchester Road, Maplewood; 314-644-1790), and this Saturday, June 2, the restaurant will host a special prix-fixe dinner to benefit earthquake-relief efforts in Italy.

The dinner will feature four courses for $40 per person, with $10 of that donated to earthquake-relief efforts. A $30 wine-pairing supplement is also available, with a portion of that cost also going toward the relief donations. The restaurant will accept additional donations. Acero recommends reservations for this dinner.

Road Accident in Haiti Leaves 50 People Dead On Monday June the 18th, Haiti witness one of the numerous unreported road accidents in the country that left about 50 people dead. It happened at a location named Duchity south west of Port-au-Prince when a transportation bus carrying about 65 passengers attempted to cross through a risen river. Only 16 passengers survived the accident. The Martelly administration has transmitted in a press release his deep sympathy to the families of the victims and the survivors. In the media the government leaders deplored the reckless attitude of drivers and call for more caution when driving on the national roads, that’s it. Let’s help you put this into perspective, Haiti has no insurance company that will take care of these victims; the government couldn’t even search to recover the bodies. The families are left without answer. They have initiated a community search but they have no technological capability at their disposal and also this river does not end into the sea, but disappear in a fall underground; at this point it is not clear whether or not the families will ever recover the bodies of their love ones. Community mission for hope, a non-profit organization, is reaching out to you to participate in raising $1000 for the families.
