Seattle Restaurant Alliance members recognized by Seattle Police Department

Members of the Seattle Restaurant Alliance, formerly the WRA Seattle Chapter, gathered at Seattle Police headquarters March 2, 2011, and were recognized for their support of Seattle’s five precincts.

“It was amazing to see our restaurant industry leaders recognized,” said Robert Bonina, Washington Athletic Club vice president of food and beverage. “The Seattle Restaurant Alliance members and purveyors came together to support our city’s officers by providing holiday meals.”

In December 2010 the Seattle Restaurant Alliance, in conjunction with the Seattle Police Foundation, prepared holiday meals to each of Seattle’s five precincts.

“Our police offices risk their lives every day so we don’t have to,” said Bonina. “Supporting them is just the right thing to do.”

Tutta Bella, Red Door, The Washington Athletic Club and The Garage were presented with awards of appreciation at the March event.  Police Chief Diaz, Deputy Chief Metz, East Precinct Captain Dermody each expressed their gratitude for the restaurant’s and purveyor’s efforts.

Food Services of American, Meadow Sweet and Charlie’s Produce were recognized for their contributions to the holiday meals. Included in the festivities of appreciation were the West Seattle High School ProStart culinary students who facilitated the meals for their precinct.
