Nakato to donate half of sales tonight to Joplin relief

Posted online
Nakato Japanese Steakhouse will donate half of tonight's sales to Ozarks Food Harvest for use in its long-term, post-tornado Joplin recovery efforts.

“We are thrilled that Nakato is giving to our relief efforts in Joplin,” said Denise Gibson, development director at Ozarks Food Harvest, in the release. "They’re donating half of all sales, not just proceeds, which is truly incredible."

The restaurant, located in the Battlefield Mall parking lot, is open 4:30 p.m.-10 p.m. today.

“We are pleased to partner with Ozarks Food Harvest to help our neighbors in Joplin,” said Jeremy Osten, manager at Nakato, in the release.

Nakato held a similar event in March, teaming up with Springfield Sister Cities Association to aid those affected by earthquake and tsunami damage in Springfield's sister city, Isesaki, according to Springfield Business Journal archives.

The event raised $34,000, the release said.[[In-content Ad]]
