Local Blackfinn Resturant #1 in Nationwide Summer Promotion


This Summer, Big Brothers Big Sisters partnered with BlackFinn Ameripubs nationally to raise funds and awareness for local agencies, who will receive 70% of the money raised.

Locally, two BlackFinns raised nearly $4,500 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the National Capital Area! The BlackFinn of Merrifield, VA was the national winner for raising more money than any other Finns – over $3,300!

Our congratulations to Michelle Resnick, Marketing and Sales Manager, at the BlackFinn in Merrifield and Peter Donohoe, Assistant General Manager, for their enthusiasm and community spirit. We also thank Lara Habet, Marketing and Sales Manager, at the BlackFinn in Washington, DC, who worked tirelessly to get corporate involvement from the District’s businesses.

Lara and Michelle, Finn wait staffs, and the management teams at each restaurant worked hard to raise money for support of our programs. Peter Donohoe presented an over-sized check for the national funds raised of $17,014.

Be sure and visit both of our two area BlackFinns: 1620 “I” Street NW, in Washington, DC and 2750 Gallows Road, in Halstead Square, Vienna, VA for a great meal and atmosphere. Another Finn will be opening in MD and will hold a charity night with the local BBBS agency.
