SOUTH AMBOY — Sciortino’s Harbor Lights and the South Amboy Branch YMCA announced “Proceeds Day” benefiting the Y’s “Strong Kids” Program. Proceeds Day will be held at Sciortino’s on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 11:30 a.m. – 11:30 p.m. Sciortino’s will donate 15% of all bills, dine-in only, to the Y’s scholarship program when a Proceeds Day flyer is presented. The restaurant is located at 132 South Broadway in South Amboy.
Sciortino’s Harbor Lights is a fourth generation family-run restaurant, and one of the oldest pizzerias in the country. Their brick oven pizzas and family style pasta are well known in the community, dating back to their restaurant in Perth Amboy. Owners Lou Seminski, Sr., and his son Lou Seminski, Jr., have established a sense of community pride at Sciortino’s where all are invited to enjoy great company and great food. They are also recognized for their philanthropy to many local causes.
“The YMCA has a long history of supporting families in the communities they serve, so it was natural for us to join this initiative through Proceeds Day,” said Lou Seminski, Jr.
The Y is one of the nation’s leading nonprofits strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. No one is turned away for the inability to pay. In 2012, the YMCA of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge & South Amboy awarded over $50,000 in scholarships through the “Strong Kids” Program. Last year, over $20,000 of the money raised supported deserving families and individuals of South Amboy & Sayreville.
