Northbridge favourite The Hummus Club is throwing its support behind #CookForSyria and hosting a unique dinner event on Friday, 1 November to raise funds to support UNICEF Australia’s Syria Crisis Appeal for Children.
Owners Kait and Ziad Zammar are donating the whole restaurant for the night to support the cause which is close to their hearts. Motivated by childhood trips to Syria to visit his grandmother, Ziad and his team have organised the ticketed event for 100 guests which will feature a Syrian inspired shared menu, auction items, and a special live performance from WA’s ‘dark folk pop’ star Felicity Groom.
“My time in Syria as a child not only inspired me to get involved in #CookForSyria, but was also one of the driving forces behind The Hummus Club,” Ziad said. “My love of hummus came from Syria, where my grandmother would always make it for us and we would share amazing experiences as a family.
“#CookForSyria is helping millions of people affected by the refugee crisis, and for that reason giving up the Hummus Club for one night is the least we can do.”
Tickets for the dinner cost $200 a head and can be purchased here.
Now in its third year in Australia, #CookForSyria is a global movement that encourages restaurants and household chefs to raise money for UNICEF Australia’s Syria Crisis Appeal for Children. Funds raised from the #CookForSyria initiative help provide vital aid including clean water, education, nutrition, vaccinations and psychosocial support. Globally it has raised more than $1.5 million to date.
