Lake Forest Bar and Grill in LFP
By Diane Hettrick

Patrons of the Lake Forest Bar and Grill in LFP Town Center are well aware of the community involvement of the business. Frequent promotions benefit local community groups by donating a percentage of sales for an evening. A recent promotion benefited Briarcrest Elementary. 

The November Comfort Classics is special. Instead of one night, the promotion ran for an entire month.

One dollar from every Comfort Classics entree and beverage sold for the month of November was donated to Mary's Place, to coincide with their No Child Sleeps Outside campaign. Although the Grills have done similar Comfort Classics promotions for various Northwest charities for over five years now, this was their first time working with Mary's Place.

Mary's Place is a shelter for homeless women and children. Their mission is to empower homeless women, children and families to reclaim their lives by providing shelter, nourishment, resources, healing and hope in a safe community.

According to Assistant General Manager Josh Diles, "our Comfort Classics menu is so named because we wanted entrees that evoked thoughts that only comfort food can bring  - warm memories of family, childhood, and times gone by. We also featured Wines from Chateau St. Michelle, and a comfort cocktail list - one dollar from every beverage was donated as well."

The promotion applied to all five Grills - LFP, Eastlake, Bremerton, Greenlake, and Maple Valley.

As a company we raised over $4800 for Mary's Place. Lake Forest Bar and Grill in particular led all our stores, with local community members helping raise over $1500 dollars for the program. 

They are continuing the Drinks for a Cause program through December, with one dollar from every glass sold going to Mary's Place.

The Lake Forest Bar and Grill is located near the Ballinger entrance to LFP Town Center, intersection of Bothell and Ballinger Way.
