Eat For a Cause
Friends of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse will hold a fundraiser on May 1 at International House of Pancakes (IHOP), 75 Highland Avenue, East Providence. Everyone is welcome to bring family and friends to IHOP from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Whatever your schedule, you can enjoy lunch, dinner or even a late May breakfast and, at the same time, support efforts to restore this historic New England landmark.
Just bring a Pomham Rocks coupon, available in this issue of the East Providence Reporter and on posters displayed in local supermarkets, banks and businesses, and present it to your server when you dine at IHOP on May 1. You can order any item from the menu and a portion of all sales from guests presenting coupons will be donated to Friends of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse. Additional coupons are available at Schroder’s Deli & Catering on Willettt Avenue or they can be downloaded from the Friends’ website at www.pomhamrockslighthouse.org.
Pomham Rocks Lighthouse has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1979. Since 2004, the Friends have been instrumental in restoring and preserving this maritime treasure, located just 200 yards from the East Providence shoreline. Proceeds from the May fundraiser will be used for the final phase of the project – the restoration of the interior of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse and the establishment of a museum.
