Ask anyone here, one of our favorite things about working at Besaw's is that we're a neighborhood spot. We have an amazing family of regulars, and we get to know our community. We love being a part of birthday breakfasts before school, dinner with the family, and much needed date nights for mom and dad. The sense of community that fills this neighborhood  is a wonderful thing to be a part of. As we start the new year may we all resolve to spend more time with family, community and building lasting relationships with our neighbors.

 It is in this spirit that we've chosen to feature The Friends of Chapman Foundation as our charity this month. For the whole month of January, a percentage of dinner sales will be directly donated to this wonderful foundation.

Friends of Chapman is a partnership between the Chapman Education Foundation and the Chapman PTA. They believe in a supportive partnership between the staff, parents and community. Friends of Chapman works to make connections in our neighborhood and our community through partnerships, fundraising activities and community service in order to support enrichment programs including art and music at our neighborhood school, Chapman Elementary.

They help to continue enrichment programs such as partnerships with OMSI, field trips, Science Fair, Art Ball, artist-in-residency programs, library books, musicals, field day, teacher allocations for classroom supplies, activities and much more! Organizations such as this one are what make for strong communities, healthy partnerships and bright opportunity for generations to come.

Chapman is a very special school and we are proud to be a part of this community based program. We hope you'll stop in and visit us for dinner, and help to support this fantastic neighborhood and the people that live and work here.
