Weekend: Can We Pour You a Drink?

Jack and Milly

The Bungalow Restaurant in Corona del Mar is generously throwing a guest bartending night for Greer’s OC Tuesday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to benefit the college education of two young Kenyan students in Nairobi, Jack and Milly.

Guest bartenders will be Greer Wylder of Greer’s OC, Mona Shah of Moxxe PR, Julie Karges, producer of Karges Media, and Kimberly Daskas of Vestar Development.

Greer met Jack and Milly on a month-long volunteer trip last year to their tiny village in western Kenya. A college education will allow them and their families to escape a life of poverty (they live on about $1 per day in a small village with no electricity or running water).

Greer has already raised enough money ($4,000) to enroll them in a university in Nairobi. However more funds are need to allow them to continue their education.

Please consider changing the future of these two bright and caring Kenyans. All tips will go towards Jack & Milly’s educational fund. Anyone who dines in after will receive 10% off the dining bill.

The Bungalow is one of our favorite local spots for steaks, seafood, and martinis—you have to try the to die-for bone-in rib eye, lobster mac and cheese, miso Chilean Sea Bass.

2441 East Coast Highway in Corona Del Mar. 949.673.6585.
