*Media Advisory* Gloucester’s Newest Restaurant Tonno Holding Soft Opening to Benefit P.A.A.R.I.
GLOUCESTER — Police Chief Leonard Campanello and John Rosenthal, co-founders of the Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (P.A.A.R.I.), are pleased to announce that Tonno, Gloucester’s newest restaurant, will host a soft opening with all proceeds benefitting the P.A.A.R.I. organization.
“We are thrilled to partner with an up and coming restaurant like Tonno to benefit the P.A.A.R.I. organization,” Rosenthal said. “All proceeds of the reservation donation go directly to P.A.A.R.I. We encourage both members of the Gloucester community and friends of P.A.A.R.I. to attend.”
Thursday, June 16
Tonno, 2 Main St.
- Anthony Caturano, Chef and Owner of Tonno
- P.A.A.R.I. co-founder and Gloucester Police Chief Leonard Campanello
- P.A.A.R.I. co-founder and chairman John Rosenthal
As is custom for new restaurants, Chef and Owner Anthony Caturano will be hosting a soft opening of Glocuester’s newest restaurant, Tonno. The evening will serve as a fundraiser for P.A.A.R.I.
For a fixed contribution to P.A.A.R.I. of $100 per person plus optional gratuity, patrons will have the experience of ordering off of the complete Tonno menu and be able to select from a variety of beer, wine and mixed drinks (non premium). Premium wines and beverages will be available for an additional charge.
Attendance will be limited to 100 patrons with reservations spaced evenly throughout the night. Reservations can be made on a first come, first serve basis by calling Tonno at 978-879-4795. The reservation line will be open weekdays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. until the restaurant’s opening next Thursday.
One hundred percent of the $100 charge goes directly to P.A.A.R.I.
P.A.A.R.I. was started to support local police departments as they work with opioid addicts. Rather than arrest our way out of the problem of drug addiction, P.A.A.R.I. committed police departments:
- Encourage opioid drug users to seek recovery
- Help distribute life saving opioid blocking drugs to prevent and treat overdoses
- Connect people suffering with opioid addiction with treatment programs and facilities
- Provide resources to other police departments and communities that want to do more to fight the opioid addiction epidemic
P.A.A.R.I. was created by Gloucester Police Chief Leonard Campanello and John Rosenthal to bridge the gap between the police department and opioid addicts seeking recovery. Since its founding, more than 100 police departments in 24 states have joined as partners with the initiative.
