Restaurant owner Erikki Oranen said he's donating a portion of the proceeds to the Vanessa Behan Crisis Center.
Cyrus O'Leary's has maintained a long relationship with that service provider, said Oranen.
What he wouldn't say is what the portion going to the crisis center. "It will depend on how much we raise," he said, noting that the percentage will change according to the net take.
He also didn't want to say what the possible range of percentages would be.
Friday's preview will be Friday from 3 to 6 pm.
