Write-up by Joe Teresi:

T.F. Brown's and the Mancuso Family added another year to its long tradition of serving a Traditional Christmas Day Dinner to the Genesee County region. This year 320 meals were served on a cold, snowy Christmas Day.

The day started early as Rick Mancuso and his early morning crew arrived at the Restaurant just after Santa touched down at their house to prepare the restaurant for the dinner guests and ensure the dinner would be ready on time. The Batavia Lions Club assisted with serving the meal as well as providing toys to all of the children in attendance. This year the Community had an opportunity to assist in the dinner when T.F. Brown's hosted a holiday Happy Hour where customers dropped off toys for the event. The event was well attended with both the United Way of Genesee County and the Batavia Rotary making it their December meeting. A special gift for the holiday diners, was a poinsettia courtesy of Larry Delre and Delre’s Greenhouse.

In addition to the Christmas Day crew, special thanks go out to T.F. Brown’s staff including chefs Frank Yanik and Jeff Pangrazio. Also Maud Charpin in the office who handled reservations. The dinner would not be possible without the support of T.F. Brown's vendors who assisted with the Dinner, including the breadman, Jeff Condidorio. Also, thanks to all the social service providers who assisted us in getting the message out to the community.

While Christmas maybe over, the Mancuso Family looks forward to carrying on the this tradition in 2014.
