Help Cafe Roma Reopen at August 4th Fundraiser


Castaways is hosting a fundraiser for Cafe Roma which was destroyed in a blaze, above, in April.

Castaways in Cruz Bay is hosting a night to benefit the renovation of Café Roma on Sunday, August 4, starting at 5 p.m.

Guests will be able to enjoy some Café Roma signature dishes, such as the Rajun Cajun, Penne Broccoli, salads and zepolis. Food tickets are available in advance at Connections in Cruz Bay and Coral Bay for the price of $20 in advance or $25 at the door.

In addition to the sale of food, there will be a silent auction, a raffle, and many drink specials. Raffle prizes include many great items like boat trips on charters such as Wet Woody, Sadie Sea, Cloud 9, Nightwind, and many great gift certificates to local restaurants, hotels, and retail stores.

Raffle tickets, $5 each or five for $20, are on sale in advance at Connections in Cruz Bay and Coral Bay, Across the Street, Woody’s and Castaways, and will be available at the event as well. Tickets are also on sale on St. Thomas at the Nisky Center Management Office, Suite 211.

All proceeds from food sales, as well as raffle and silent auction sales, will go directly to help with the renovation of Café Roma. A portion of bar sales will also be donated by Castaways.

Café Roma Night at Castaways kicks off at 5 p.m. and will feature live entertainment throughout the evening.
