Relief fund for restaurant loss
If you don't know yet about what happened, Amy's and Melanie's restaurant got wiped out by a mud slide/flood on Monday. This was the Ranch House BBQ Restaurant in Olympia, Wa.
Amy and Melanie were two of the three members of 'Mad Mama and the Kids' bbq team who used to whoop our butts all the time. Some great people.
They don't have flood insurance, and it looks like their restaurant is totally trashed, about 1 million dollars worth.
A relief fund has been set up at the West Coast Bank, the Olympia West Branch, Olympia, WA. The telephone number is (360)754-2400. You may call the number and they can take "checks by phone". They don't do credit cards ( but they might by now). Ranch House BBQ/account #93006945. I verified the telephone number via Yahoo Yellow Pages and it does belong to West Coast Bank in Olympia, WA.
Melanie was known as Melanie Jones at the time she and others founded the then called Southern California BBQ Association which later became the California BBQ Association and shortly Melanie became Melanie Tapia and moved to Washington and started the Ranch Hous BBQ Restaurant along with Amy Anderson.
Melanie was greatly responsible for the growth of organized BBQ contests in California at the very beginning of organized contests in California.
If you would like to help I'd encourage you to do so.
Thanks, Otis and the Bird
