ANTHONY’S SEAFOOD GRILL RAISED A RECORD $7535 FOR THE MUKILTEO FAMILY YMCA AT THE 2018 SANTA BREAKFASTS

Anthony’s Seafood Grill raised a record $7,535 for the Mukilteo Family YMCA at their annual Santa Breakfasts December 1st and December 8th.

Kicking off the holiday season, Anthony’s Seafood Grill (located at Alderwood Mall) hosted breakfast the first two Saturdays in December where adults paid $20 and children under the age of 12 paid $5. Along with breakfast, families were able to decorate cookies, make their own ornaments and get their pictures taken with Santa. Professional carolers rounded out the experience as they sang Christmas carols throughout the duration of both breakfasts. This year, 323 adults and 215 children were in attendance, up from 274 adults and 175 children last year and raising $1180 more than the year prior. All proceeds from the tickets were donated to the Mukilteo Family YMCA for their Casino Road programs.

“Anthony’s Restaurants is an important community partner to the YMCA,” says Martin Cross, Executive Director of the Mukilteo Family YMCA. “The funds raised from the Santa Breakfasts provide access to YMCA programs and memberships for those who would otherwise be unable to participate.”

“We feel truly honored to host these Santa Breakfast benefits every year,” says Ari Walton, General Manager at Anthony’s Seafood Grill. “It is our continual mission at Anthony’s to support organizations within all of the communities we are located in. We feel fortunate to partner with the Mukilteo Family YMCA to assist in their efforts within the Casino Road community, while simultaneously providing an environment for families to come together and enjoy the holiday season.”
