August 20, 2008: Selfless act should be applauded


To The Editor:
What a wonderful surprise to wander into Cassie’s Café in Roxbury a few days ago and find Lisa Palazollo waiting tables. Lisa is not the regular waitress there. She took it upon herself to approach the restaurant owners with a novel idea: if they would let her wait tables, she would donate all of her tip money to charity. They agreed, and for a week or so, Lisa put in the hours for the sake of the Smile Train which provides surgery for under-privileged children.
Wish I’d known sooner—I’d have sent all my friends. What a selfless thing to do. Hats off to Lisa! Hats off to Cassie’s Café!
