7by7 Restaurant supports bgccb

After our wonderful experience with Chef Riley Hollohan and his Sous Chef Nick Young during our Christmas Dinner, we approached 7by7 co-owner Nagy Abdou about partnering with us for our annual chicken and rice fundraiser.

Chicken and rice is a traditional African Nova Scotian dish with roots in Whitney Pier's West Indies and Black Loyalist settlers. Each year the BGCCB has done a small fundraiser selling chicken and rice plates to community members as part of our celebration of African Heritage Month and as a way to generate income to support our important programming for the youth of our community.


We were so thrilled when Nagy expressed his enthusiasm of our program and talked about how supporting the local community was a big component of his business.

So for the entire month of February every time a patron purchased a 7by7 Whitney Pier Caribbean Stye Chicken and Rice plate, the BGCCB received a portion of the proceeds.


The response from our community was wonderful, so many folks shared our social media posts to help spread the word and many people stopped in to sample Chef Riley's delicious meal.


We were so pleased to receive our portion of the proceeds from 7by7 as well as an additional donation from the restaurant.

We've been so lucky to have some truly wonderful community partners, and 7by7 restaurant has shown us, once again, the power of partnerships.

We look forward to partnering with them again in the future.


Thank you Nagy, Riley, and the 7by7 team, and to all of community members who supported us through this delicious fundraiser.
