Gondolier Italian Restaurant to support local veterans during June

Gondolier Italian Restaurant & Pizza, located in East Asheville near I-40 Exit 55, will extend the community spirit by supporting local veterans during the month of June. Customers may present a coupon flyer at check-out and $1.00 of their purchase of $10 or more will be donated to the VA Medical Center Program.

The VA Medical Center Program includes two very important intiatives: Veteran's Affairs Supporting Housing (HUDD-VASH), assisting homeless veterans transition to independent housing and The Butterfly Wish, helping fulfill the wishes of dying veterans.

"We want to give back to the community," says Kosta Angelos, restaurant owner. "It's very important to us to support worthy causes, and this is the first time we've reached out to help the veterans. We also do benefit promotions to support breast cancer awareness and the American Heart Association. We are happy to do this in our new community here in Asheville, and we look forward to meeting new faces and seeing lots of customers come in to support this cause."
