Grazia Italian Kitchen held a donation drive and raised $40,000 for the fallen Pearland Officer Endy Epankya's family last Saturday (June 19). Grazia Italian Kitchen owner Adrian Hembree, Executive Chef/Operator Steve Haug and Grazia Italian Kitchen management team and staff hosted the event from 6-11 a.m. in the parking lot of the restaurant at 9415 Broadway in Pearland. One of Grazia's missions is to give back to the community.
Grazia Italian Kitchen served breakfast tacos for $5.00 while Keller Williams Realty offered car washes, Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital and Pearland Medical Center volunteers were on site to help. Other community supporters and participants include Ben E. Keith, distributor of food service products, Pena's Donuts, The Drink Station and Mind Right Multisports.
