April 11 Event will benefit American Cancer Society in Honor of “Buck”
Louisville, KY (March 29, 2017) – Founded in 1992, Buck’s Restaurant & Bar, 425 W. Ormsby Avenue, will celebrate its 25th Anniversary by hosting a special event on Tuesday, April 11 from 6pm-8pm. The evening will include complimentary cake and a celebratory glass of champagne, as well as a special 3-course prix fixe dinner for $60 featuring Buck’s menu classics paired side-by-side with Chef Colter’s new interpretation of the same dish.
A portion of the proceeds from the event, as well as from the entire month of April, will be donated to the American Cancer Society in honor of Buck’s Restaurant & Bar founder, Hensel Heath. Hensel was nicknamed “Buck” by his grandfather as a child because he was “wild as a buck.” In February of this year, Hensel was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell cancer.
While the anniversary is bittersweet, Buck is looking forward to celebrating the success of Buck’s Restaurant with supporters and members of the community that have become like family. He will attend the event on the 11th and be able to share memories of opening the restaurant 25 years ago, while taking pride in the restaurant’s achievements and support over the years.
When Buck opened Buck’s Restaurant & Bar in 1992 in the heart of Old Louisville, he wanted the restaurant to mimic a moon garden, which is a garden comprised of all white flowers that can be enjoyed both day and night. The interior of the restaurant remains the same today, featuring dark walls, candles, and fresh, white flowers.
The original menu was inspired by a group of Filipino college students who brought an authentic international element to the cuisine. While the menu has evolved over time, many of the initial favorite dishes from 25 years ago are still offered today.
The anniversary event will also include a silent auction with proceeds going to help with Hensel’s medical expenses. A Go Fund Me page has also been created for those who wish to contribute https://www.
