Brandon, FL January 2013 — Wok Chi, the fresh casual Chinese restaurant in Regency Square in Brandon, Florida raised over $2,600.00 to benefit the Emergency Care Help Organization of Brandon (ECHO). Wok Chi will be presenting ECHO with the check on Thursday, January 23 at 10:45am at Wok Chi (2420 West Brandon Boulevard, Brandon). The Check Presentation will be open to the public.
The money was raised as a part of Wok Chi’s Green Tea Initiative, the restaurant’s commitment to spreading joy through giving back to the community in addition to welcoming guests with a complimentary cup of hot, organic, freshly brewed green. The ECHO Fundraiser ran from November 1 through December 31, 2013, and 5% of each stir fry purchase was donated to ECHO.
“We are thrilled at the response of the Brandon community to our cause to support ECHO,” said Rahul Chaubal, vice president of Operations of Wok Chi. “We know these funds are greatly needed, and we at Wok Chi are honored to help serve our community.”
“We are extremely appreciative of Wok Chi and their support,” said Stacey Efaw, executive director of ECHO. “These funds will directly benefit ECHO’s Food Pantry.”

About Wok Chi’s Green Tea Initiative
It all started with some positive chi and a simple idea of how to spread it. We thought, if we could give everyone who came through our doors a token of appreciation—a free cup of hot, healthy, organic, freshly brewed green tea—we could make their day a little cheerier. That is how our Green Tea InitiativeSM was born. The tradition of welcoming guests into one’s home (or restaurant, in our case) is an expression of gratitude and hospitality. The more special we make you feel, the more contagious your smile is. We invite you to join us as we take our joy-spreading initiative to community outreach programs, gardens, fundraisers and food drives. Green tea equals good chi, and one cup really can transform the world.
