Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano along with owners Jim Brown, Robert Engel, Michael Friedman, Dean George, Charlie Giglia of Hurricane Grill & Wings announced a special fundraising partnership to assist those still affected by Hurricane Sandy."Too many of our residents are still not back in their homes, nearly nine months after the storm," Mangano said. "We want you to know that we have not forgotten you, nor have we stopped fighting for funds to help you rebuild."
Hurricane Grill & Wings and its staff haven't forgotten those residents either.
On July 29, from 6 p.m. to close, Hurricane Grill & Wings will host a fundraiser in honor of those Long Islanders. The owners will donate 100% of proceeds from a select food and beverage menu, from the Garden City, Syosset and Levittown locations, to the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund (NHRF) - marking nine months since Sandy hit. Franchisee owner Dean George, who has been rebuilding homes in Long Beach, said “We are honored to parter with Nassau County to assist in the aid of those who were displaced by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.”
County Executive Mangano appointed a committee about a month after the storm struck to start a fund that would collect private contributions and give them directly to the neediest Nassau residents. So far, the NHRF has provided financial assistance to 65 local families. Find out how you can donate to the Fund at www.nassaurecovery.com.
