Dear Friends of Ol�,


We are writing with full hearts. On behalf of our extended family here in the United States, as well as our families back in the Philippines, we are deeply grateful for all the expressions of sympathy we have received from you in the wake of the terrible catastrophe that has just struck our homeland. We thank you so much for your warm wishes and your concern. Luckily, our families have survived without personal injury or worse. But as you have seen and heard in recent days, many, many others have been far less fortunate, and the country is in shambles. Disaster relief is desperately needed. Every day, every hour counts.


So we are reaching out to you to ask you to help in three ways:


1.    Join us at the OL� FUNDRAISER FOR THE PHILIPPINES on Monday, November 25th. We are providing an authentic family-style Filipino dinner at Ol� - Taste of Mexico (Click Here to See the Menu).  An open bar will offer a full range of beverages available for purchase.


The suggested donation is $125 per person, 100% of which will go to Save the Children, to support the vital, life-saving work they are already doing on the ground in the Philippines. If you are able to contribute more to Save the Children's efforts, an anonymous donor has offered to match donations made over the $125 level (up to $250 per person).


Save the Children has worked in the Philippines since 1981, and has been on the ground since the disaster struck, working to provide vital shelter, food, and emergency health services to children and families in the Philippines.  We are attaching a fact sheet that details the critical relief efforts Save the Children has provided to date, and will provide in the days and weeks to come.  A Save the Children representative will be joining us at the dinner, and will be able to provide more information about the essential work being done in the Philippines. (Click Here to See the Fact Sheet)

Please contact us at 617.492.4495 or

indicating the number of people who will be attending the dinner under your reservation. Please note that our space for the dinner is limited, so we must accept reservations on a first-come, first-served basis. To ensure a seat at the table, we urge you to sign up immediately.


2.    If you cannot attend the dinner but want to make a contribution, please do so by contacting us at 617.492.4495 or elisa@olerestaurantgroup.comPlease know that contributions in ANY amount are very welcome and will be put to good use.


3.    Finally, please forward this message to everyone you know. We are certain that, in this season of generosity and thankfulness, a great many of our friends and neighbors will be moved to offer assistance to those in desperate circumstances in the Philippines.  Receiving this note from you may offer them a convenient way to provide that assistance.


Again, sincere thanks. We hope to see you very soon, and we wish you and your families the warmest, safest, and happiest of holidays.


Chef Erwin Ramos, the Ramos family, and the entire Ol� family
