This past Thanksgiving, restaurant owners and East 204th Street & Bainbridge Merchant Association presidents Eli Garcia and Gino Pacheco held their fifth annual Thanksgiving event at their establishment, Beso Lounge. The event fed over 300 people with Fresh Direct’s donation of nearly 300 turkeys and was facilitated by volunteers from Beso Lounge, Lexa Bar and Ischia Bravo’s campaign. Other supporters of the event included Assemblyman Mark Gjonaj and the Mosholu Preservation Corporation.
