In the days right after Hurricane Sandy, the Woodbridge Community Center was a tri-county encampment for victims of the storm. One of the local restaurants that helped feed dozens of local familes was Bahama Breeze.
The restaurant is still giving back to the community, and you can help (particularly if you enjoy going out to eat.)
This time, they are holding a special event at their Woodbridge site to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Perth Amboy. On Monday, November 19 and Tuesay, November 20, Bahama Breeze will donate 10 percent of the restaurant's sales to the Perth Amboy club, up to a total of $2,000.
During the two-day collection, the Boys & Girls Club will have a table in the restaurant with information about the group.
The restaurant has also volunteered to serve as a collection point for donations of bottled water and canned goods which will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club.
Located on the grounds of the Woodbridge Center mall complex, Bahama Breeze is one of a chain of 30 restaurants. The Woodbridge location opened just over a year ago. They specialize in Caribbean-inspired fish, chicken, and steak dishes and island-style drinks.
