Wok Chi will help the Brandon Sports and Aquatic Center.

Wok Chi, a casual Chinese restaurant opening in the Regency Center at 2420 W Brandon Blvd., hosts a Grand Opening Community Celebration from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 11 to benefit the Brandon Sports and Aquatic Center.

"We have enjoyed working with the Wok Chi team in creating a fun event for our many members," said Chuck Burgess, executive director of the sports center.

Wok Chi will serve authentic, pan-regional Chinese dishes cooked to order using fresh ingredients seared in sizzling woks as well as dim sum and signature desserts.

The restaurant is intended to provide a fun, interactive experience that honors tradition while embracing contemporary style.

"We are very excited to be partnering with the Brandon Sports and Aquatic Center," said Rahul Chaubal, president of operations for new markets at Hot Brands International, which own Wok Chi.

"The center has been impacting lives of families throughout the Tampa Bay area daily for the past 50 years," Chaubal said.

Proceeds will benefit children's summer camp programs at the sports center. Tickets are $15 per person, and $10 for children 12 and under. There will be live entertainment. To make a reservation, call the Sports and Aquatic Center at (813) 689-0908. Walk-ins are also welcome.

Wok Chi officially opens May 13. The restaurant will serve lunch and dinner from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Takeout will be available as well.
