A big thank you from the Friends of the James River Park to Pescados China Street for their contributions to the non-profit group that provides citizen support for the conservation, enhancement, and enjoyment of the 550-acre James River Park System and its natural and historic environments.
“We had some hikers, trail runners, boaters and mountain bikers all out that night to enjoy some camaraderie, a cocktail and a conch fritter to benefit the FOJRP,” said Friends member Marguerite Daniels. “Pescados generously donated 15 percent of their Monday profits to a different local charity.”
Bob Windsor of Pescados China Street said the restaurant did more than $2,000 in sales on March 14 and the total contribution to the park was $326.88. “We will do a charity benefit on most Monday nights for a qualified cause,” he said. He said that the FOJRP night was one of the best-attended nights for the popular Oregon Hill eatery.
