The trustrees of the Greenwood Fire Relief Fund just announced that they will present checks for $1,000 each to the owners of the four businesses destroyed in the Oct. 23 arson at the Greenwood Sip & Ship, 8560 Greenwood Ave. N., at 10 a.m. Saturday.
The Green Bean, one of the businesses destroyed in that fire, is temporarily taking over Sip & Ship’s coffee operations. Starting at 8 a.m. Saturday, they’re having a “mugging,” where customers can bring their own mug to enjoy a cup of coffee, then leave the cup behind to replenish Green Bean’s mismatched mug collection.
The other three businesses destroyed in that fire are C.C. Teriyaki, Szechuan Bistro and Pho Tic Tac.
Steve Giliberto, president of the Greenwod-Phinney Chamber of Commerce, said the Greenwood Fire Relief Fund at Chase Bank currently has about $4,700, and is still accepting donations.
