NORWALK, Conn. – The Restaurant at Rowayton Seafood, located in the heart of one of Hurricane Sandy’s hardest hit neighborhoods in Norwalk, is donating $10,000 to local recovery efforts, it announced Tuesday.
To raise the money, the restaurant collected 10 percent of its gross sales from Nov. 7 to Nov. 21. That was not an easy task because restaurant staff worked hard to get the facility in shape. It ran on generator power immediately following the storm.
The restaurant’s owner, Kevin Conroy, will present a check for the donation to Norwalk Mayor Richard Moccia during a ceremony at the restaurant, 89 Rowayton Ave., at 11 a.m. Thursday.
The proceeds will go the mayor’s “Norwalk Community Benefit Fund,” which will in turn will present that money to the Fairfield County Foundation’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund, according to Conroy.
Rowayton Seafood and the The Restaurant have been fixtures in the neighborhood's landscape since 1978.
