Old Town, ME – January 16th 2023 – In response to the recent tragedy in Lewiston, Governor’s Restaurant is hosting a special fundraising event, the “Lewiston Fund Benefit Night,” on Tuesday, January 23rd, from 4 PM to 8 PM at all 6 of its locations. This event is dedicated to supporting the families and individuals profoundly affected by the Lewiston shootings.

During this event, 10% of all sales, including dine-in and takeout orders, will be donated to the Maine Community Foundation’s Victim and Family’s Fund.
