Tuscaloosa, Ala.- August 25, 2011 - Zoës Kitchen, a popular, Mediterranean-inspired restaurant based in Birmingham, today announced an initiative to raise money for the RISE Program at the University of Alabama. From September 1 – 15, for every Dinner for Four sold at its restaurants, Zoës will donate $5 to the RISE Program in honor of Zoë Bromberg, the granddaughter of Zoës’ namesake affectionately named “Little Zoë.”
Zoë Bromberg was the granddaughter of Marcus and Zoë Cassimus, the original founders of Zoës Kitchen. Bromberg, a 23-year-old University of Alabama graduate and active member of the Kappa Delta sorority, died in a tragic traffic accident on July 12.
In her memory, Zoës Kitchen is supporting the RISE Program, the philanthropy of Bromberg’s University of Alabama sorority Kappa Delta.
