Best Carryout Restaurant winners announced
As Treasure Coast restaurants prepare to partially reopen outdoor and indoor dining venues on Monday, we are happy to announce the winners of our Best Carryout Restaurants contest.

Nearly 1,000 ballots were cast in the contest, which  recognizes the food and service of three restaurants on the Treasure Coast — one each in St. Lucie, Martin and Indian River — that provided outstanding food and service during the essential business phase of the coronavirus pandemic when restaurants could only provide carryout or delivery. Voters chose from carryout restaurants listed in TreasureCoastRestaurants.com, a service of Indian River Magazine Inc.

Nicole Parker, owner of Sunrise City Cafe, 204 Orange Ave. in Fort Pierce,  is so happy to be reopening  in-store dining Monday that she is offering customers a 10 percent discount from Monday through Friday next week for customers who give a message to her staff.

The cafe, known for its famous grits, specialty coffee and friendly service, has been offering curbside pickup since the stay-at-home order. Parker says the cafe has also been repainted and new tables and chairs put in place during the stay-at-home order. Beginning Monday, she’s ready to show her appreciation to customers.

PSL company making custom face masks
Foxyware, a custom apparel manufacturer in Port St. Lucie known for its rhinestones and sequins, has turned its efforts to manufacturing custom masks to help slow the spread of coronavirus.

The company recently filled an order for Bravo Supermarkets, which wanted to provide masks for all of its employees. The masks reusable and machine washable, had Bravo’s colors and logos emblazoned on them. Bravo owner Luis Marejo was so happy with the masks he called to reorder them for his customers. “He noticed some customers were walking into the store without any face-coverings or with well intended but poor homemake masks,’’ said Foxyware’s Wayne Cimperman. “Luis told me he wanted to give away as many as he could to help those in need.’’

More masks can be seen at www.foxyware.com

HOMETOWN HERO
BY MARYANN KETCHAM
Since 2014, Neda Story has served as a volunteer extraordinaire with the  Humane Society of the Treasure Coast. Since April of 2015, this Palm City resident has donated well over 700 hours.

A dedicated dog walker at the shelter, even on holidays, Story works hand-in-hand with the animal trainer and behavior specialist, attending training sessions and working with dogs that require extra training.  

She also leads small classes for new dog-walking volunteers.  

Some dogs are a challenge to adopt out.  They may need extra-socialization and TLC.  Fostering those dogs in her home, Story helps them become more adoptable.

As a recent Valentine's Day treat, she set up a special date with Frankie, a shelter dog.  After playtime at the beach, Frankie went home for a bath, followed by dinner at the Pelican Cafe'.  The two strolled the boardwalk in Stuart and stopped into Terra Fermata to listen to music.  As it was a late-night outing, Frankie spent the night nestled between 800 thread-count sheets at Story's home.  

Story also helps promote shelter dogs by taking their photos, writing about them, and posting them on social media.  She attends numerous events, touting dogs wearing "Adopt Me" vests, and has the proper training to interview potential adopters and complete the adoption process.  

The COVID-19 crisis has not deterred Story from her mission.  She continues to visit the shelter, walk, and play with the dogs at least three times each week.  

"Neda is such a passionate and dedicated volunteer," said Volunteer Program Manager Sarah Fisher.  "She has such a special connection with each of our dogs, and that radiates whenever she enters their kennel.  Dogs and shelter staff are beyond lucky to have someone as wonderful as Neda Story on our team.”
Do you know somebody on the Treasure Coast who should be singled out for praise because of their actions during the coronavirus pandemic? Whether it’s a nurse at the local hospital, a volunteer at the local food bank or a grocery clerk going the extra mile, Treasure Coast Business and Indian River Magazine Inc. will help you sing their praises in our new online feature Hometown Heroes of the Treasure Coast. Visit www.indianrivermagazine.com/hometown-heroes/

Share your nonprofit’s needs with us
Share your nonprofit’s needs with us at www.treasurecoastnonprofits.com  We will share your needs online and in the summer issue of Indian River Magazine.
As a service to readers and restaurants on the Treasure Coast, Indian River Magazine Inc. has created a website showing restaurants, bars, breweries and wineries that are open for carryout and/or delivery in St. Lucie, Indian River and Martin counties. The site includes hours and days carryout is available as well as popular dishes. See the new site at treasurecoastrestaurants.com
