Pretty sure all who know Angel in the Charleston F&B world know she is an incredibly giving, creative, committed member of the community. It's not always easy to speak the truth, nor is it convenient to hear it. The fact that she got a conversation going here is great! Keep on Angel!

Re: “Constantly asking restaurants to give freebies to charities has got to stop

So be prepared for our request for cash donations rather than product and staff time. Especially as the current administration proposes to slash access for social services for our state's poorest residents, we will turn to for-profit businesses and individuals more frequently to meet the basic needs of the poorest in our communities. Many of these are people who work in the hospitality industry with low wages and no benefits.

Re: “Constantly asking restaurants to give freebies to charities has got to stop

wow...as a former King Street retail business owner, I was all too familiar with the constant requests for donations...sometimes it was even down right annoying, but we decided who and what we wanted to give to. That said, to spend the energy complaining about it in an article seems really unnecessary and even damaging to the nonprofits that we are so grateful to have here in the Lowcountry. Let's face it. The Charleston F &B industry is one of the strongest in the country... this article is just petty.

I call BS. Respectfully say no if you want but get a write off and help a charity is a win win. Any small amount is good and the certificate may never be used. Still a win win. 10 requests a week. Oh, I am so sorry for your trouble. Restaurants aren't the only ones but they have the easiest way to help out. I was in the F & B industry. Giving creates good will and good will creates more business if handled correctly.

Re: “Constantly asking restaurants to give freebies to charities has got to stop

Consider doing this.....
Ask your organization's benefactors to underwrite the acquisition of some of the bigger ticket or popular auction items. Use that seed money to purchase the premier items or services at a steep discount. A properly organized and conducted auction should generate a reasonable return for the organization. Leverage the seed money to bring a higher yield for the organization.

Angel's effort in behalf of Wine+Food was for the benefit of the F&B industry itself. That's a big difference. Go Angel.
