PRESS & MEDIA

Just before his arrival for Friday’s taping of Newsmakers, Mayor Avedisian was working a shift as a bus boy at Gregg’s in Warwick alongside Pawtucket Mayor Don Grebien. Are the two municipal chiefs really that hard up for cash? No, it was all for a good cause – two, actually. The pair were enlisted by Speaker Mattiello to help him at a “Get Served by the Speaker” breakfast fundraiser he co-hosted Friday to benefit a charity of his choice, the St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry of Cranston, and the Rhode Island Hospitality Association Education Foundation, which funds scholarships for culinary students. The event was the brainchild of Dale Venturini, who’s led the hospitality association since 1989. A Mattiello aide reports 160 people attended the sold-out event, which raised $8,000 for the two charities. Mattiello and House Majority Leader John DeSimone served the guests eggs, French toast, bacon, muffins and other pastries, and fruit. No word on whether the newly slimmed-down speaker snuck a pastry.
