ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Following the publication of the story of Shi Qiu Chen and her family at the New Leaf Bistro in the Admiral District many in the West Seattle/White Center restaurant community came together to help the struggling family.

Shi lost her husband January 29, after a sudden discovery of advanced lung cancer, which led to his death.

A GoFundMe page was set up to help collect donations and raise $30,000 to offset funeral costs and get the family back on solid ground. That page shows the total close to $20,000 and local restaurants set up an evening in which 10 percent of all dinners sold was donated to the cause. That total came to $2272.

The restaurants that took part were:

Noble Barton (White Center) Peel and Press Itto's Mission Cantina Circa Baked Custom Cakes Westy Sports and Spirits

Shi expressed her gratitude to the whole group saying "I can't say thank you enough."
