FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CreAsian restaurant, at the northwest corner of Chestnut and Campbell in Springfield, will for the sixth year, donate half of its gross sales Tuesday, Sept. 19, to the Springfield Police Foundation and the Springfield Fire Department’s fire education and prevention efforts.

Last year's donation netted $1,600 for the Springfield Police Foundation and the Fire Department’s education and prevention efforts. Since 2012, the restaurant has donated nearly $8,000 to the departments with the annual fund raiser.

CreAsian 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 16 years ago, he had nothing. Now he has a restaurant and a family," she explained. "It's now time to contribute back to society."
