Local Restaurant Donating Proceeds to Palm Beach Zoo

March 13, 2013

 

A locally-owned restaurant is dishing up some fresh eats and some of its profits to benefit the animals at the Palm Beach Zoo.

Jade Kitchen opened in 2006 in the up-and-coming Northwood area of West Palm Beach.  A former private chef and graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Wayne Devers, brings his talents to life using only the freshest ingredients. Some of the items on the ever-changing menu could include slow roasted pork on Chinese steamed buns and wild gulf shrimp Mozambique.

Dever’s wife, Katherine, who handles the front of the restaurant, recently started volunteering at the Palm Beach Zoo because of her love for animals. Wanting to give back to the community that’s embraced them, the owners of Jade Kitchen are donating 10% of sales on Wednesday, March 20, to the Palm Beach Zoo. The Zoo will also have character mascot, Timmy the Tiger, at the restaurant that night from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Proceeds will go directly to the care, feeding and enrichment of the more than 1,400 animals at the Zoo.
