Lessing’s Tries To “Do Good”: The Lessing’s Hospitality Group, which owns Finnegan’s in Huntington village and Sandbar in Cold Spring Harbor, are partnering this month with Island Harvest Food Bank for its “Do Good” initiative. Lessing’s team members donated their time to help plant and cultivate the Island Harvest Food Bank’s 1.8-acre “Giving Garden” in Brentwood on April 9. The company will also help fundraise for Island Harvest throughout the month, culminating on Earth Day, April 22, when Lessing’s will match 100 percent of the donations made to Island Harvest on Earth Day up to $5,000. Island Harvest’s mission is to help the 300,000 Long Islanders struggling with hunger and food insecurity. “Hospitality and giving back go hand in hand. Whether it be supporting a local cause close to our hearts or to our employees, cleaning the beaches, or helping those in need, it is what gives us a purpose,” Lessing’s VP Mark Lessing said.
