The cheel in downtown Thiensville will be hosting the first annual fundraiser, “March into kindness with the cheel,” during the week of March 19th, 2018.
As the cheel approaches their four year anniversary, owner and executive chef Barkha Limbu Daily wanted a way to give back and celebrate some of the non-profits that continually do outstanding work for the community. Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center, Thiensville Fire Department, and Thiensville Village Park Re-Imagined are the four handpicked organizations to be featured during the week.
Each participating organization is assigned a day (Monday through Thursday) where 10% of the gross revenue (not including gratuity) will be donated to their respective organization. During the weekend, the funds will be distributed equally to all participating organizations.
Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center – Monday, March 19th, 2018
Thiensville Village Park Re-Imagined – Tuesday, March 20th, 2018
Thiensville Fire Department – Wednesday, March 21st, 2018
Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin – Thursday, March 22nd, 2018
In addition to that, the cheel will be providing a locked box for each participating organization that our guests are encouraged to donate to as they wish. The box can only be opened by respective organization.
"I am very excited to kick off this annual event to help local non-profit organizations achieve their mission," said Daily. "We dine out for numerous reasons, including birthdays, first dates, and anniversaries--or for no reason at all-- so why not dine out and be kind.”
The cheel is located at 105 S. Main Street in Thiensville. Named as one of the Top Restaurants in Milwaukee, the cheel promises to pack that spice-infused wallop in the traditional “tidbits,” or small plates, it offers. Indeed, the menu features “flavors from the Himalayas to the Rockies” and incorporates flavor-profiles from Burmese and Tibetan cultures, as well, which commingled along the historic and famous Kathmandu trade route. With just 3.5 years under their belt and over 30 awards, in just the last year the cheel has been named in the Top 50 Restaurants by M Magazine, 4 Instagram-Worthy Boutique Restaurants in Wisconsin by Travel Wisconsin, The Milwaukee 50 by the Journal Sentinel, Best Chef by M Magazine, Best Splurge Restaurant by M Magazine, Best International Fare Restaurant by M Magazine, Best Fish Fry by M Magazine, Best of ‘Burbs: Food & Drink by Milwaukee Magazine, Great Fish Fries (Readers’ Pick) by Milwaukee Magazine, 7 Wisconsin Destination Restaurants in 2016 by Travel Wisconsin, and #1 restaurant in Mequon/Thiensville (yelp & trip advisor – best rated).
