From now until Sept. 13, Mary’s Bleue Moon restaurant in Sidney is raising money and collecting food donations.

After seeing a call out for help stocking the shelves at the Sidney Lions Food Bank in a recent edition of the Peninsula News Review, the restaurant decided to do its part.

“We saw the need of the food bank in the paper,” says restaurant employee Mike Politano, “and we have a couple of customers who volunteer there.”

So, to help out, the restaurant is taking donations of food and cash and offering customers an incentive for doing their part.

Politano said they purchased an iPad and will be giving it away when their fundraising effort ends with a dinner and dance on Sept. 13.

Mary’s Bleue Moon is hosting the event and will also be giving away a Thrifty Foods gift card and will have a silent auction as well. Tickets for the dinner and dance — featuring the Craig Henderson Trio — are $20 each with half of the proceeds going towards the food bank. The dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 13 and Politano said it’ll go to midnight.
