If you have ever eaten at the Cheetah, you know this is more than just a restaurant. The Electric Cheetah never fails to deliver an incredible meal of creative selections, quality local ingredients, and excellent service for a very fair price. Many locals became "Cheetahvangelists" very early in the restaurant's life.

The local American Red Cross relationship with the Electric Cheetah began last fall, when owner Cori De Mint agreed to host a pancake breakfast for the Red Cross, raising money for the Ride for Refugees. His only request was that the Red Cross provide the local, organic maple syrup. On the morning of the fundraiser, the Cheetah team went way beyond the call of duty, cooking up pancakes, along with a delicious home-made apple topping for the cakes and offering eggs topped with bacon, peppers, mushrooms and grapes.

This Saturday, March 20, the Electric Cheetah will once again be hosting a Benefit Breakfast for the Red Cross; this time, raising funds for World Refugee Day on June 19.

Co-hosted by the American Red Cross, Bethany Christian Services, Lutheran Social Services, the West Michigan Refugee Center, and a number of other refugee assistance agencies, World Refugee Day will bring together our city’s representatives, business owners, students, and community members to welcome their new refugee neighbors and to celebrate their remarkable stories, cultures, and gifts.

If you love to eat good food, drink good coffee, and enjoy the company of others in the eclectic Wealthy Street neighborhood, you should set aside your Saturday morning and head down to the Electric Cheetah.
