Following a fire last night in the building that houses Sub Rosa Bakery in Church Hill, Richmond's food community is organizing benefits to assist those who were affected.

The building has been condemned and its upstairs residents displaced. Some were rescued by Richmond firefighters, but no serious injuries have been reported. Although initial reports say the bakery appears to have minimal damage, fundraising events are being planned to help defray construction and rebuilding costs. Style will have more details as benefit events are confirmed.

Evrim Dogu's bakery at 620 N. 25th St. opened in November. Along with his sister Evin, he creates rustic breads and pastries for local restaurants, farmers' markets and retail sales at the shop.

UPDATE: Next door neighbors, The Roosevelt, will host a benefit supper on Monday, April 8th from 5:30-8:30PM to raise money for Sub Rosa and the residents of the apartments displaced by the fire. The buffet-style family supper is open to the public. From their press release:

"We will be asking for cash/check donations at the door ($20 per adult/ $10 per child), which will include iced tea and food by Jason Alley (Pasture/Comfort), Tim Bereika (Secco Wine Bar), Randy Doetzer (Mint/Julep's), Joe Sparatta (Heritage), Phillip Denny (Aziza's), Owen Lane (The Magpie), and Lee Gregory (The Roosevelt). We will also sell alcoholic beverages separately and add those profits to the kitty."
