ALBANY, N.Y. (Dec. 17, 2019) — Calypso, UAlbany’s pan-Caribbean food venue, raised a total of $2,537 to support the Bahamas as it continues to recover from the damage inflicted by Hurricane Dorian in August.

All proceeds from Calypso’s One Love Menu Bahamas Relief Menu went to the Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund.

The fundraising effort, which kicked off on Oct. 4 and ran through last Friday, featured traditional Bahamian foods, including jerk pork, fried conch fritters and rum cake.

Calypso, founded by Executive Chef Jude Jerome, won the national 2019 Food Management Magazine’s Best Concept Award.
