“All the proceeds go to benefit the boys from St. Peter’s,” said owner Dimitra Stavros.

Stavros says this is the sixth year that they are doing this.

“That’s a really good feeling. I have kids of my own and I bring them in,” she said. “Our family enjoys public service. We just enjoy people.”

Stavros says her diner at 3130 Route 10 West in Denville expects to contribute about $7,000.

There is a special menu for Thanksgiving at the diner. It’s $29.95 for adults and $9.95 for children 12 and under.
