Steve Baliva (right), Vice President of Operations for 40NORTH Restaurant Group, owner and operator of Summit's newest dining destination -- Piattino: A Neighborhood Bistro -- presents a check to Summit Area YMCA CEO and President Paul Kieltyka.

The $3,425 donation came from a series of pre-opening training events at Piattino, located at 67 Union Place, where guests could enjoy the The Neighborhood Bistro's cuisine, which includes hand-stretched Neapolitan style pizzas and sandizza’s -- their own version of a Panini baked fresh at 800 degrees in its imported Italian stone-fired oven -- 'on the house' with a $5 donation benefiting the Summit Area YMCA.

Giving back is part of the 40NORTH and its parent company Villa Restaurant Group's culture, according to Baliva. “We were thrilled to introduce guests from Summit and the surrounding communities to Piattino, and wanted to find a way to give back to the community at the same time. Providing guests with a complimentary meal while raising money for such a local and worthy organization was important to us. After having the opportunity to work with The Summit Area YMCA for the opening of The Office Tavern Grill last year, we have seen first-hand how their programs directly benefit the local youth and community, and we could not be happier to partner with them again to benefit the great community of Summit.”

The donation will support the Y’s financial assistance program, which ensures that child care, membership, summer camp for children, and other meaningful programs are available to all members of the Summit community regardless of financial circumstance.
