It may have been cold outside, but the island music and the mood of the crowd was anything but chilly. On Monday afternoon, Bahama Breeze Island Grille celebrated the opening of its restaurant at Potomac Mills with a ceremonial ribbon cutting and $1,500 donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, signifying the brand’s commitment to the Woodbridge community and area youth.
At the event on February 4, Sufian Essawi, general manager of the Bahama Breeze Potomac Mills, presented the special donation to Rhett Pfitzner, Board President of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Prince William/Manassas Region. “We are looking forward to being a part of this community.” Essawi said. Besides supporting local groups, Bahama Breeze also participates in the Harvest program run by Food Donation Connection. Boys and Girls Club board member Mark Worrilow of Confidence Realty stated “The Boys and Girls Club is very enthusiastic to have support from a partner like Bahama Breeze. Generosity like this allows Boys & Girls Clubs to be a greater force for our youth.”
Several members of the Prince William Chamber of Commerce and Potomac Mills Mall staff were in attendance. After the ribbon was cut, members socialized in the restaurant enjoying favorites such as Jerk Chicken, Coconut Shrimp and Empanadas. “Our restaurant is designed to create an atmosphere of casual relaxation and fun, like you’d find in the islands,” said Essawi. “As the weather gets colder and the winter sets in, the Bahama Breeze in Woodbridge offers a tropical dining adventure with friendly service, delicious food and handcrafted tropical drinks.”
