WEST CAPE MAY — Want to fill up for a good cause?

Exit Zero Cookhouse will serve up its finest fare 6 to 9 p.m. April 27 to support the Cape May County Art League’s Scholarship Fund.

For those ready to dine on curries, seafood and more, the restaurant plans to donate 15 percent of the evening’s proceeds from those who sign up for Commit to Eat.

“We are very grateful that Jack Wright, owner of Exit Zero Cookhouse, has made this wonderful fundraising opportunity available to the Art League,” league President Anne Gibboni wrote in a news release.

Wright, who owns Exit Zero magazine, said this will be the first time pairing with the scholarship fundraiser. He said he hopes it’ll be “the first of many.”

“We try to create a year-round community here in Cape May, and I think anything that supports nonprofits is a worth while endeavor,” Wright said. “I think the arts do a great deal to make life in places like Cape May more fulfilling, so I think supporting the arts organizations is very important.”

The event is promoted through groupraise.com. So far, 20 patrons plan to “commit to eat.”

“We are excited to have a great meal, show our members’ artwork and reach new audiences,” Gibboni said.

The art league was formed in 1929 by Samuel Fleisher and Frederic Nunn. The all-volunteer organization gives scholarships to students who live or attend school in Cape May County.

Last year, the league gave four students $1,100 scholarships to study art in New York City or Philadelphia.
