Drago’s donations

Drago’s Seafood Restaurant’s Metairie location will donate all of its July 14 sales proceeds to Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana in celebration of Drago Cvitanovich’s 91st birthday, said owner/manager Tommy Cvitanovich.

He said the family would like to make a tradition of charitable events on Drago Cvitanovich’s birthday.

“Seeing the tremendous amount of support for my father’s 90th birthday last year inspired us to create another event this year,” Tommy Cvitanovich said in a news release. “Being able to help Second Harvest combat hunger in south Louisiana is better than the actual birthday itself.”

Drago’s Metairie location will be open and accepting donations from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 14. Its full menu will be available for guests dining inside and family pack meals to-go will be offered outside the restaurant.
