An informal gathering at Screaming Eagle restaurant brought the tireless fund-raising President of the Red Cross Aruba, Greg Peterson, in contact with Sebastien Kameier who handed him a generous check of Awg 10,000, collected with the help of the Screaming Eagle & Flying Fishbone restaurant staff.
Sebastien and the restaurant staff also presented a check of Awg 4,000 to another charity, SOS Childrenâ€™s Villages International, a charity supported by the Kameier family for many years — SOS Children’s Villages is active in 132 countries, the umbrella organization SOS-Kinderdorf International, for more information go to http://www.sos-childrensvillages.org
The funds were collected last Saturday, when the two famed restaurants on Eagle Beach & Savaneta served special selected menus, designed to fundraise aid for the victims of the earthquakes in Haiti. Fifty percent of all funds generated at both establishments were donated to the Red Cross Aruba and to SOS Childrenâ€™s Villages. In addition to that the dining room staff of the Flying Fishbone pledged a portion of their income to the cause, and their donation was matched by owner Daniel Kameier.
The special menu at the Screaming Eagle featured a choice of spicy Peruvian ceviche, carpaccio of black angus tenderloin or lobster bisque; Alaskan halibut, smoked u.s.d.a. skirt steak Provencal or surf and turf combining u.s.d.a. black angus tenderloin, Caribbean rock lobster and tiger shrimps; for dessert chocolate brownie and dulce de leche ice cream or trilogy of chocolate mousse, concluded the memorable evening. At the Flying Fishbone patrons feasted on smoked salmon, lobster bisque or beef carpaccio, followed by Alaskan salmon or chefâ€™s special of sirloin steak & shrimp skewer, or poulet de bresse, chased by fudge brownies with vanilla sauce and chocolate chip ice cream or the equally tempting warm Dutch apple pie.
