Club 57, an Italian-American restaurant at 7465 Seneca Road North, Hornell, is holding a month-long event to benefit Catholic Charities' 2015 Appeal. Patrons who dine at the restaurant between 5-8 p.m. on any Monday in March will have 15 percent of their bill donated to the organization when they present the coupon.
This business collaboration is part of Catholic Charities' efforts to continue expanding its donor base, reach the younger demographic, and raise awareness about the human service organization's mission and services.
"Club 57 is carrying out this fundraiser for Catholic Charities in hopes that other restaurants will eventually follow suit. We believe in raising money for Catholic Charities all year long, not just during the Appeal." said Lisa Marino, owner of Club 57. "I know the money will be put to good use as I have seen people being impacted and empowered by the organization.
Sr. Mary, Catholic Charities diocesan director, said, "Catholic Charities is grateful for Club 57's generosity and devotion to our cause. The donations received will go towards helping over 142,000 people across Western New York. We look forward to working with them again in future."
