What the Fork previously noted the sad passing of Soleil Banguid, the chef at Soleil’s African Cuisine, whose delicious pan-African cuisine and infectious good spirits won hearts and minds. Banguid passed away in March after suffering a severe stroke. He was 45 years old. Now, two Alameda business owners, Monica Trejo (of Wescafe) and William Wong (of Localize It), are organizing a fundraiser to support Banguid’s wife, TJ Banguid, and her family.

The event, entitled “Le Soleil Brille Toujours” (“The Sun Always Shines”), will be held at the Albert H. DeWitt Officers’ Club in Alameda at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12. A five-course dinner (cooked by Trejo) will feature Banguid’s recipes, and the event will also include an auction and an African drumming performance.

Tickets are $75, and will be available for purchase either online or in person at Wescafe (1536 Webster Street, 510-522-7200).
