Nolan’s on Canandaigua Lake donates nearly $5,400 to St. Mary School

This month, Nolan’s on Canandaigua Lake donated nearly $5,400 to St. Mary’s School in Canandaigua. The money was raised through a portion of proceeds from the sale of Friday night fish fry dinners during Lent, and Nolan’s corned beef and cabbage special, sold on St. Patrick’s Day.

“From the very first time we opened our doors nearly 10 years ago, we have always experienced the true generosity of the community and in turn, we pride ourselves on being proud supporters of the Canandaigua community,” said Nick Violas, Nolan’s owner. “We are thrilled to support St. Mary’s School and to present them with this donation.”

Additionally, throughout the pandemic Nolan’s supported local essential workers and organizations by donating more than $10,000 in meals.

“We are committed to facing these challenging times together and we are dedicated to ensuring we help those in need, especially employees who have been on the front line supporting our community,” said Violas. “From Thompson Hospital and Canandaigua Emergency Squad to Elm Manor, Clark Manor and Ferris Hills Nursing Homes to the Canandaigua Police Department and countless others—we are so grateful they have been working tirelessly to keep our friends and neighbors safe.”
