Harryâ€™s Seafood Bar and Grille to donate to the Florida Association of Food Banks $1 for every Poâ€™Boy sold in February
Online PR News – 01-February-2014 – St. Augustine, FL – Harryâ€™s will be joining the fight to create a Hunger-Free Florida by donating $1 for every Poâ€™boy purchased in February. Last year Harry's raised $4,000 to the Florida Association of Food Banks, a partnership of 14 food banks that serve all 67 counties in the Sunshine State. The Association is committed to making sure families that need food can get food.
Louis Saig, founder and President of Harry's said, "This is our opportunity to give back to those in need. Helping to feed the hungry is as worthy a cause as it gets."
As the Poâ€™boy's beginning was founded in helping others, Harryâ€™s Seafood Bar and Grille is hoping to honor that history. The Poâ€™Boy was created by Bennie and Clovis Martin and provided free of charge to the streetcar motormen and conductors during the 1929 transit strikes in New Orleans, Louisana.
"Florida has more than three million people that are food insecure," said Rebecca Brislain, Executive Director, Florida Association of Food Banks. "For every dollar we receive, our Food Banks provide six to eight dollars worth of food to those who struggle with hunger."
Harry's Seafood Bar and Grille currently has five locations serving the St. Augustine, Gainesville, Tallahassee, Ocala and Lakeland markets. For more information about Harry's Seafood Bar and Grille, call 904-642-2165 x 108 or visit HookedOnHarrys.com.
