Ara’s Seafood & Steaks Restaurant presented a $1,000 donation to the Ark Assessment Center and Emergency Shelter of Corpus Christi on Thursday, February 20, at 1:30 p.m. at the Ark at 12940 Leopard Street, Corpus Christi.

For the last several months, as guests ordered one of two selections on Ara’s menu, a portion of that price was matched by Ara’s, and earmarked for donation to the Ark. Ara Babos, President of Ara’s Seafood & Steaks, presented the $1,000 donation to the Board of Director of the Ark Assessment Center and Shelter.

"Ara’s Seafood & Steak’s staff is proud to be able to assist the Ark in its mission to provide emergency shelter and assessment services to children who are physically or sexually abused or neglected. We felt compelled to be a small part of enabling the Ark to protect these kids," said Ara Babos.

"Donations to non-profit organizations in Corpus Christi is our way of giving thanks to the community who has been so supportive of our restaurant and new banquet facilities. We truly love creating memorable experiences of farm to table cuisine for our guests," she said.
