By generously donating a private party for up to 75 people valued at $7,500 as a unique auction prize, Bragozzo Osteria Wine Bar, the Italian-themed restaurant located in Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park helped Food For The Poor raise enough money during its recent gala to build homes with sanitation for 65 destitute families in Jamaica.
The winning bid was from prominent philanthropists Abdol and Cathy Moabery of Delray Beach. Cathy Moabery was one of the organizing chairpersons of Food For The Poor’s 18th annual Building Hope Gala, held on Feb. 2 at The Polo Club of Boca Raton. The in-kind donation of a dinner or lunch party to be scheduled before Nov. 1 includes appetizers, salads, pasta dishes, desserts, two glasses of beer or wine, unlimited soft drinks, iced tea, and coffee, and all restaurant fees, gratuities, and taxes.
“Bragozzo’s silent auction prize was the highest valued prize at the Building Hope Gala. Proceeds from Bragozzo’s silent auction prize will help to build safe, permanent Food For The Poor homes for families in Canaan Heights in May Pen, Jamaica,” said Robin Mahfood, Food For The Poor’s CEO and president.
Bragozzo’s new menu and wide selection of fine wines appeal not only to casino patrons but to the discriminating tastes of all great Italian cuisine lovers, according to Rob Wyre, Isle Casino Racing general manager. He added that the restaurant’s wine bar is scheduled to be refurbished this spring to better accommodate more wine tastings and happy hour events.
Bragozzo Osteria Wine Bar is open 5 p.m. – 10 p.m., Friday through Tuesday evenings. Reservations are recommended (954-633-6633) for Friday and Saturday nights. It is located on the casino’s second floor next to the poker room, across from Farraddays steakhouse. For further information please visit www.theislepompanopark.com.
