PLATTSBURGH — The Ninety Nine Restaurant in Plattsburgh is holding a silent auction through Sept. 19 to raise money for the Plattsburgh City School District.
Up for bid are plaques and memorabilia that have decorated the restaurant’s walls over the years. There is a binder at the hostess stand at the Route 3 eatery where people can place bids.
The restaurant will close for renovations at 8 p.m. on Sept. 23 and reopen at 4 p.m. on Sept. 27.
Marc Vital, general managing partner of the Ninety Nine in Plattsburgh, said they are passionate about the relationship with the Plattsburgh School District and place a high value on education, so they chose it to benefit from the auction.
“We are looking forward to supporting such an important organization in the community and, with the help of our guests and team members, believe this will be a successful auction,” he said in a press release.
The company is remodeling the look of the Plattsburgh restaurant, which will be the first in the state to receive the most up-to-date amenities.
To entice diners with an inviting setting, the restaurant will feature a brighter, warmer and comfortable atmosphere, the release said. The exterior and interior will boast vibrant new colors, with new carpeting inside and decor that highlights the local Plattsburgh community.
The bar-area decor will undergo an even more extensive renovation, Vital said, that will include new booths, tables, bar stools and a new mahogany wooden bar top. All of the bar updates will complement new flat-screen televisions for viewing sports events.
Ninety Nine President John Grady said they look forward to offering the new look to customers in Plattsburgh.
“We’re proud of the work we’ve done with local organizations like the Plattsburgh Central School System as part of our continued commitment to the community,” he said.
A check presentation will take place on Oct. 3.
