HONOUR BOUND | Chambar To Stay Open 24 Hours For #SweetRelief Beekeeping Program

March 2, 2016.

Universal-Ourtreach-Bee-Keeping-5

Scout is thrilled to be sponsoring #SweetRelief, an event at Chambar that will see the celebrated restaurant stay open for 24 hours – all night long – from 4pm on Saturday, March 26th to 4pm on Sunday, March 27th. They’re doing it raise money for Universal Outreach’s anti-poverty honey and beekeeping initiatives in the West African nation of Liberia. Details below:

Chambar (568 Beatty Street) is proud to announce #SweetRelief, a partnership with Vancouver-based charity Universal Outreach in support of its Advanced Beekeeper’s Training Program and the Liberia Pure Honey social enterprise in Africa.

From 4pm on Saturday, March 26 to 4pm on Sunday, March 27, 100% of ALL sales at Chambar will benefit Universal Outreach’s anti-poverty honey and beekeeping initiatives within Liberia.

#SweetRelief will see the restaurant’s owners, management team, front-of-house and back-of-house staff work 24 hours straight serving patrons with the goal of raising $50,000. Chambar is challenging local businesses to match dollar for dollar what participating staff is able to raise, on the condition they last the entire 24 hours. Interested donors can also pledge their support online at https://chimp.net/campaigns/sweet-relief.*

Regular à la carte menus will be served for the duration of the 24 Hour Marathon:

Saturday, March 26 – Dinner Menu 4pm to 4am.
Sunday, March 27 – Brunch Menu 4am to 4pm.

Each service will also highlight honey as an ingredient, with features including the famous Lamb Tajine, Gaufre au Saumon, Mama Rizk Dessert, and the El Chupacabra cocktail.

As part of their commitment to this worthy cause, Chambar owners Karri and Nico Schuermans have imported Liberia Pure Honey so that each #SweetRelief guest will receive a complimentary 2 oz. ampoule (while supplies last).

Devastated by last year’s Ebola outbreak, 83% of Liberia’s population lives on less than $1.73 CDN per day. Universal Outreach’s Advanced Beekeeper’s Training Program and its Liberia Pure Honey social enterprise and sales division allow a mostly rural population of subsistence farmers to supplement their income with a marketable skill that does not require displacement from their family land. Beekeeping is also an alternative to income through deforestation.

Join Chambar for dinner, a late-night meal, an even later late-night meal, or Easter Brunch between 4pm on Saturday, March 26 and 4pm on Sunday, March 27.

*All donations made through the fundraising site will receive a tax receipt.

About Chambar

14937427893_da095c525b_o

Chambar offers a unique pairing of Belgian and North African influences. Wherever possible, organic and local ingredients are combined to create fantastic food that reflects the seasons. The menu is a diverse offering of appetizers, moule frites, and main courses of lamb, duck, and venison. A variety of Belgian beers are also available, and can be paired with any item on the menu. At the bar, an award winning cocktail list boasts an extensive array of infused spirits and fresh local fruit. The long walnut bar is perfect place to enjoy a pre-dinner dinner drink or to catch up with old friends. In the dining room blood red booths are high enough to allow for privacy, and maybe just a hint of debauchery, while Italian designed chairs and an eclectic and rotating art collection complement Chambar’s heritage surroundings beautifully. Open for breakfast, lunch, brunch & dinner 8am – late.
