Morris County was hit pretty hard by last week’s devastating storms and ongoing aftermath. This week, Arthur’s Tavern in Morris Plains is holding an impromptu fundraiser to benefit the Red Cross and, hopefully, some of its own friends and neighbors.
“I’ve been seeing the devastation first-hand with my dear friends and fellow business owners who have lost their homes and property completely,” owner Alyce McGreevy explained. “The American Red Cross has been here from the beginning providing meals and support to these people.”
Inspired to help, McGreevy devised a fundraising idea that offers good food for a good cause: “For every meal served at our Arthur’s Tavern in Morris Plains from Wednesday September 7 through Friday September 9, Arthur’s Tavern will donate one dollar to the American Red Cross. In addition, I will personally match this donation so that the American Red Cross can continue this wonderful service that they are providing.”
Arthur’s, famous for their oversized steaks and juicy burgers, is open for lunch and dinner, 11:30am – 11pm. Visit their website at www.arthurstavern.com to preview menus and specials.
McGreevy is eager to welcome customers old and new, and give something back to the community she loves. “Our prayers and thoughts are with everyone,” she said.
