NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Prestige Diner, located at 1318 Springfield Avenue in New Providence, will host its annual fundraiser for St. Andrew’s School this Saturday, March 31, from 6 a.m. until midnight.

Prestige Diner will donate part of the revenue collected during that time to St. Andrew’s school, located at 419 South Street in New Providence.

The diner is a New Providence landmark owned by Jimmy and Harry Vardas, who hope to surpass the $2,000 raised last year.

St. Andrew’s Nursery School and Kindergarten was originally founded as an outreach ministry of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in 1965. Since then, the school has provided morning and afternoon programs for ages 2 to 4, and full day kindergarten.

"It is so generous of them to help support us this way," said Deborah Cook, director of St. Andrews. "They are always so welcoming when I stop by there for lunch."

Cook said the money raised this year could be used for staff development and training, educational materials, or literature for the classrooms.

"Where we use it depends on where our needs are, but a donation like this enables me to do the things we need to do," she said.

A landmark in New Providence since 1967, the Prestige Diner has been family owned and operated for over thirty years. Recently renovated in the spring of 2009, the restaurant now includes a fireplace, televisions, a coffee bar, comfortable booths and tables, and an extensive menu serving up the freshest ingredients, even into the late hours of the night. Menu items include breakfasts, sandwiches and paninis, burgers, pastas, steak and seafood, salads, and of course, desserts such as the homemade cakes and pies on display behind the coffee bar.

Prestige Diner often gives back to the community by participating in community service, charities and local events. They encourage patrons to alert them to such opportunities so that they can continue to benefit local and surrounding areas in need.
