Mix it up at Anthony’s on November 18

Anthony Spino III, who with his brother Vito runs the family’s Italian restaurant, Anthony’s, at 701 Grand, has a deal for you this month: Bring twenty bucks and a packaged mix (brownies, cakes, biscuits, muffins) or board games and/or personal hygiene products to the restaurant on Wednesday, November 18 and get a dinner and wine tasting to benefit ReStart Inc., an interfaith ministry working with the homeless.

Anthony and his girlfriend Kymberli Cutler recently donated a new stove to ReStart’s Youth Emergency Shelter. “They only had a refrigerator and a microwave,” Spino says. “They needed something they could really use for cooking. Right after we paid to have an electrician get enough power to the stove, the kids at the shelter baked cookies for the firefighters down the street. That’s why we’re encouraging our patrons to bring in cake, cookie and muffin mixes, so they kids can continue to learn to bake things.”

ReStart also needs the personal hygiene items (shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes) and board games, Spino says.

For the November 18 event, he’ll have two seatings, the first at 5:15 p.m. and the second at 7:30 p.m., for dinners that include a soup, a small entree and dessert as well as wine samplings. For reservations or more information, call 816-221-4088.
