Reverend Yew told City Images that Sammy Chernin and his wife Lauren generously agreed to donate this year's Thanksgiving traditional meal for 120 guests. He also took time to thank in advance all volunteers who will be serving the guests in the full spirit of God on Thanksgiving Day.
Sammy Chernin is the most influential businessman on City Island and the proud owner of seven restaurants including Sammy’s Fish Box, Sammy’s Shrimp Box, and the Seashore Restaurant on City Island. Sammy has been in the restaurant business for 40 years and started on City Island, while working in his uncle and aunt’s diner-style restaurant when he was a teenager.
Anyone wishing to volunteer for any of these events may call pastor Ezra Yew at 718-885-1218.
