New Initiative Supports Genesee Community College Student Scholarships

Genesee Community College Foundation volunteers Marcia McKenzie of Pavilion, assistant vice president, Five Star Bank, LeRoy office and Monica Hale-Dawson of Batavia, secretary / treasurer, Shepard, Maxwell & Hale Insurance Agency, Batavia stopped by the Red Osier Restaurant in Stafford to thank the restaurant’s general manager Michael Moore for his participation and support of the first annual Dine Out Week: Genesee Community College’s Restaurant Revue.

The Restaurant Revue promoted the enjoyment of regional restaurants while supporting student scholarships, and was a dynamite success according to Mike Moore of the Red Osier Restaurant. Nine regional restaurants offering a wide range of dining experiences from across the 2,500 square miles of Genesee Community College’s service area that includes Genesee, Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming counties, chose a night to participate in the week-long dining experience and pledged to support the Foundation’s scholarship initiative.


Participating restaurants and their hosts included: 
- Red Osier Landmark, Michael Moore, Stafford
- Terry Hills Restaurant, Mary Brown, Batavia 
-  Caryville Inn, Lyle & Bette Starkweather, Oakfield 
-  T.F. Brown’s, Rick Mancuso, Batavia 
-  Hearth Restaurant, Ken Schmitt, Chaffee 
-  Village House Restaurant, Spiro Mitrousis, Albion 
-  Yard of Ale Canal House Inn, James & Molly Bongiovanni, Piffard 
-  Pappa John’s Eagle, Nancy Scott, LeRoy 
-  Apollo Restaurant, Jamie Travelaris, Albion

Ms. Hale-Dawson said, “The participating restaurants pledged to support student scholarships at the College. It is hoped that we will continue to promote the local economy by enjoying our regional restaurants.” She added that we are already planning ahead for next year’s Dine-Out Week.
