George Wallace Serves Up Some Laughs & Meals At Grape Street Cafe in Las Vegas
Comedian George Wallace served customers in a different light on November 15, joining Grape Street Cafe Owner and Chef John Mckibben to celebrate the 15th anniversary by raising money for underprivileged children. With 100 percent of tips going to Operation School Bell, restaurant patrons tipped generously in support of the children the organization serves (Pictured: Artemus W.

For more than 30 years, Operation School Bell has provided at-risk children in the Las Vegas Valley with needed clothing and personal hygiene items. Last year the organization served 8,100 kids, nearly double the amount of children served in 2008. The charity relies solely on grants and donations from the community.

“The need is great and these kids are thrilled to come to Operation School Bell and shop as they would in any store. They are excited to choose their own jeans, shirts, underwear, socks, shoes and a winter jacket,” said Dorothy Huffey, volunteer for the Assistance League, the group that operates Operation School Bell.

The Clark County School District refers at-risk children and provides transportation to Operation School Bell. One-on-one, each child is assisted in selecting two outfits. “For most of the children it’s the only new clothing they receive for the year,” said Huffey. “The need grows each year and we welcome the support of Grape Street Cafe and other businesses that donate to Operation School Bell.”

The Assistance League is run exclusively by volunteers and all donations go directly to those in need. “It’s a great way to celebrate our anniversary and make a difference in our community,” said Mckibben.

Grape Street Cafe Wine Bar & Cellar is located at 7501 West Lake Mead at Buffalo in Las Vegas.
