Red & Black Cafe Donates 1% to Financial Aid

The next time you grab a bite to eat or enjoy a drink at the Red & Black Café, you’ll also be helping students in need at Wesleyan.

Ed Thorndike, Jr. '89 and Karen Kaffen-Polascik, owners of Wes Wings and Red & Black Cafe, will donate 1 percent of their gross sales from Red & Black Cafe to support financial aid through the Wesleyan Annual Fund (WAF).

"This is something we've really been wanting to do," says Thorndike. "I contacted University Relations and we were able to set it up and make it work. It's really gratifying to know that this money will be going to help Wesleyan students in need."

Their intention is to give semi-annually in May and January.
