As you might recall, several local businesses got together after the devastating Grand Street fire in April to raise money for displaced residents. On Monday, the money was distributed to more than three dozen families. The benefit was sponsored by the restaurants An Choi, Barrio Chino, Cafe El Portal, La Esquina and Lovely Day. An Choi owner Tuan Bui told us $6400 was raised. Councilmember Margaret Chin helped connect the business owners with Asian Americans for Equality, which facilitated the distribution of the money.
