YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- The Yorktown Grange, in conjunction with Frankie & Augie’z restaurant, has announced a “Dine to Donate” event to benefit Yorktown’s Eliseo family, which recently lost its Wildwood Street home and pets in a Nov. 24 fire.
“It’s awful what happened to this family, losing everything they owned a few days before Thanksgiving,” said Curt Chase, Yorktown Grange member, in a release. Chase, along with fellow member Scott Nelsen and Grange President Nicole Fervan, initiated the charitable effort.
The "Dine to Donate" event is scheduled from 3 p.m. to closing on Monday, Dec. 16 at Frankie & Augie’Z restaurant, on 3673 Hill Blvd. in Jefferson Valley. Patrons can mention the event or present a copy of the paper or electronic flier to their server, and Frankie & Augie’Z will donate 20 percent of the bill to the Eliseo fundraising effort.
“All purchases made on Monday are eligible — dine in, take out and deliveries,” Chase explained. “Simply mention that your order is to benefit the Eliseo family and they will contribute 20 percent of your bill.”
