Ninety Nine auction to benefit local groups


LONDONDERRY — The Ninety Nine Restaurant in Londonderry is holding a silent auction from Friday, April 13, through Wednesday, April 25, to raise money for the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Derry and the local public school system.

The restaurant is auctioning off plaques and memorabilia that have decorated the Ninety Nine's walls and will be replaced as a part of the refreshing of the restaurant.

"We are passionate about our relationship with the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Derry and place a high value on education, so we wanted to involve both groups as beneficiaries of our auction," said Amy Manchester, general managing partner of the Londonderry Ninety Nine. "We are looking forward to supporting such important organizations in the community and, with the help of our guests and team members, believe this will be a successful auction."

In order to evolve with the ever-changing tastes of its guests, the Ninety Nine is refreshing the look of the Londonderry restaurant, which will be the first in the region to receive the totally updated and modern amenities.

To entice diners with an inviting setting, the restaurant will feature a brighter, warmer and comfortable atmosphere for an even more enjoyable dining experience. The exterior and interior will boast vibrant new colors, and the interior will feature new flooring, carpeting and dé©cor that highlights the local Londonderry community.

The bar area and dé©cor will undergo an even more extensive renovation that will include expanding the ceiling height, additional seating, new booths, tables and bar stools, and a new mahogany wooden bar top. All of the bar updates will complement new flat screen televisions.

"After listening to our guests we felt we needed to update our look and feel," said Ninety Nine president John Grady. "We look forward to offering this refreshing new look to our guests in Londonderry."

Renovations will be completed by Thursday, May 3, when the restaurant is due to reopen at 4 p.m.

The Ninety Nine prides itself on being an active member of the local community. Each Ninety Nine Restaurant has a relationship at the local level with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the oldest and largest organization that has a primary mission of service to youth.
