KENDALL – Lure’s, a new restaurant which opened late last year at Bald Eagle Marina on Lake Ontario, hosted a fundraiser Thursday to benefit the Cobblestone Museum at Childs.

Cobblestone director Doug Farley came up with the idea and approached Anna and Andre Migitskiy, managers of Lure’s.

Farley first learned about Lure’s when he went there with Leadership Orleans in 2018.

“I fell in love with the place,” Farley said. “I have done this concept of fundraising successfully at other places, and asked if Lure’s would be interested. I was eager to offer this to Cobblestone country, too.”

Farley said he saw the huge investment the ownership of Lure’s was making in this region and thought they were a rising star. He not only appreciates their willingness to donate to the Cobblestone Museum, but hopes the exposure will help the restaurant, as well.

“The museum depends on a lot of different income streams to continue its work, like memberships, grants or successful on-site events, and also, as demonstrated on Thursday, through partnering with community organizations to achieve a great result than either can achieve on its own,” Farley said. “A raising tide lifts all boats.”

Lure’s Restaurant at Bald Eagle Marina in Kendall is located in this structure overlooking Lake Ontario, where a fundraiser took place Thursday for the Cobblestone Museum at Childs.
