Several weeks ago, Harmesh and Raksha Bhatti, owners of the Tucson-favorite India Oven, were burglarized. Thousands of dollars worth of damage was inflicted on the Bhatti's home, including the theft of family heirlooms, computers and a television, as well as, the destruction of the property and the remaining possessions within.

Since word of the incident has spread, community members from across Tucson have expressed an interest in helping the Bhattis recover from their losses.

One such effort comes from another Tucson-staple, the Twisted Tandoor. On Thursday, July 13, the Twisted Tandoor posted to their Facebook page that for the next four Mondays, a portion of all earned proceeds will go to helping the Bhattis restore their home.

Another community effort comes from India Oven patron Ori Parnaby. As a longtime frequenter of India Oven, Parnaby seeks to rally community support and alleviate stress on the Bhatti family through a crowd funding initiative on YouCaring. To date, Parnaby’s campaign has raised $933 toward its $10,000 goal.

In the coming weeks, consider dining at the India Oven (2727 N. Campbell Ave.) or Twisted Tandoor (4660 E. Camp Lowell Dr.), or donating to Parnaby’s campaign and showing the Bhattis your support.

For more information, contact the Twisted Tandoor at (520) 495-5499, or donate to Parnaby's Campaign at YouCaring.
