The restaurant's soft opening brought in more than $16,000 for local YMCA


Stonefire Grill, the fast-casual restaurant, celebrated the soft-opening of their new Laguna Niguel location in a charitable way. The restaurant presented the Laguna Niguel Family YMCA with a check for $16,330 following their soft opening in April.

The Stonefire Grill Laguna Niguel soft opening doubled as a fundraiser benefitting the Laguna Niguel Family YMCA and their mission of supporting healthy living, social responsibility and youth development. The event attracted hundreds of guests, whose tips and purchases of beer and wine were matched by Stonefire Grill and constituted the $16,330 raised for the YMCA.

The formal check was presented to Kelly Kneubuhl, the Executive Director of the Laguna Niguel Family YMCA by Mike Macias, the Stonefire Grill Laguna Niguel General Manager and Heather Papac, the Stonefire Grill Laguna Niguel Catering Sales Manager on May 16th at a formal check ceremony at the Stonefire location.
