HMA Friend Raises Funds for Local School

March 20, 2009

dscf1385A tip of the hat to HMA friend and restaurateur extraordinaire Craig DeMarco, who held a pre-grand opening fundraising celebration at his newest restaurant, Postino Central, over the weekend that raised more than $11,000 for the nearby St. Francis Xavier Elementary School.
Nearly 200 guests attended the event, with nearly half arriving at the bike and pet-friendly restaurant on bicycles or on foot.

Postino’s goal is to be an integral part of its surrounding community. Postino Central, for example, was given two beach cruisers – a black one for men and a pink one for women – by St. Francis supporters during the fundraiser to encourage members of the community to head to the restaurant and grab the bikes for a quick lap around the bridal path or the light rail route any day of the week.
