Restaurant Fundraiser to Benefit NCC Foundation

Eat great Chinese food this weekend and raise funds for NCC.

Village Gourmet Norwalk, a restaurant serving authentic Chinese and Asian cuisine in the Cranbury section of Norwalk, will celebrate its Grand Re-Opening following a fire last month with a fundraiser to benefit the Norwalk Community College Foundation.

A Press Conference announcing the fundraiser will take place at 3 p.m. Friday, April 26 at Village Gourmet, 22 Chestnut Hill Road (Route 53) in Norwalk.

Village Gourmet will reopen its Asian bistro this week and is using the opportunity to support NCC with a generous fundraiser. During the weekend of April 27-28, the restaurant will donate all proceeds to the NCC Foundation, to support its invaluable academic mission in the greater Norwalk region.

The restaurant encourages the public and all those who are supporters or a part of the NCC family to enjoy a meal and help raise funds for NCC.

The NCC Foundation is a nonprofit organization that raises funds for NCC programs and scholarships.

Owner Mei Chen and Master Chef Eric Xie issued a joint statement: “We have been in business for over 20 years and we are grateful for the incredible support of our loyal customers throughout the region. As we celebrate our re-opening, it is appropriate and a perfect fit to help another outstanding Norwalk institution benefitting our community, Norwalk Community College, for its invaluable contributions in the area of higher education.”

The inspiration for the fundraiser came from State Senator Tony Hwang, a long-time supporter of Norwalk Community College. Senator Hwang represents Connecticut’s 28th Senatorial District. “Charity, commitment to community and educational excellence are core elements that make our community so unique and special,” Sen. Hwang said. “I want to thank Meifor her generous support and look forward to eating some fantastic food prepared by Master Chef Xie.”
