Local restaurants are again joining forces to provide a free, hot dinner for those impacted by Sandy, or otherwise needy.
The Christmas dinner, which will be served at the Elks Lodge on Arnold Avenue in Point Pleasant from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday, was arranged by Stephanie Salardino, who planned the free Thanksgiving dinner held at the Elks the night before Thanksgiving.
"The Thanksgiving dinner went very well and we had a great turnout so I decided to put a Christmas dinner together," said Salardino, a longtime Point Beach summer resident, whose family's house on Beacon Lane was heavily damaged by Sandy.
Participating restaurants are: 709 Point Beach; Hoffman's Ice Cream; Martell's Sea Breeze and Tiki Bar; Spano's; Surf Taco; The Beanery; The Spot Pizza and Grill; Frankie's Bar and Grill; Longboard Grill; Joe Leone's Italian Specialties and Seabreeze Deli and Catering.
