Tacoma Community House will host its annual Flavor Dine-Out Fundraiser on Sept. 19.

During the event, “Stand Up For Immigrants, Sit Down For A Meal,” local restaurants will donate 25 percent or more of their total sales from the day to support the organization’s mission of “empowering immigrants, refugees and all other community members.”

Participating restaurants include En Rama, Il Lucano Ristorante Italiano, Gateway to India (Gig Harbor), La Cà Bar, Primo Grill and more, most of which are immigrant-owned.

Tacoma Community House has hosted a Flavor fundraiser for the past 7 years.

“It’s more of a friend-raiser,” said Tim Close, development and communications director for Tacoma Community House. “It’s an opportunity to show the contributions of our immigrants who start small businesses in our community.”

Close said the event is part of a national “Welcome Week,” which aims to bring together people within the community.

According to the event page, by supporting the annual fundraiser, those who participate help immigrant and refugee neighbors access services like English classes, adult basic education, transportation, expert immigration and citizenship support and relocation expenses for domestic violence survivors.
