CreAsian to Donate Proceeds to Police and Fire

CreAsian restaurant, at the northwest corner of Chestnut and Campbell in Springfield, will be donating half of their gross sales Tuesday, September 11, to the City's Police and Fire departments. Proceeds will benefit SPD's crime prevention and neighborhood watch programs and SFD's fire education and prevention efforts. In addition, the City Clerk's office will serve CreAsian food at City Council lunch Tuesday.

Restaurant co-owner Kiki Hu says her husband Johnny Tang came up with the idea because he wanted to give back to the community.

"We are so blessed and he felt that since he came here 11 years ago, he had nothing. Now he has a restaurant and a family," she explained. "It's now time to contribute back to society."

Tang also owns Max Orient in the Battlefield Mall Food Court.
