Bonefish Grill Partners with the Jefferson Performing Arts Society for Opening Charity Night in Metairie

Metairie, LA (February 27, 2011) - Bonefish Grill is partnering with the Jefferson Performing Arts Society (JPAS) as part of its Grand Opening festivities on Saturday, March 24, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. with a special Charity Night to benefit JPAS.

"This year JPAS is offering over 200 performances throughout Jefferson Parish, the Greater New Orleans area and the Gulf South. Community support and partnerships with local companieslike Bonefish Grill help JPAS to not only sustain our current efforts, but to continue expanding what programs we are able to offer the community.
