PROVIDENCE – Staff and clients of Re-Focus Inc., a Providence nonprofit that serves Rhode Island adults with development disabilities, will have Thanksgiving dinner at Gracie’s, a Washington Street restaurant, for the second consecutive year.

The dinner is being made possible by Gracie’s owner Ellen Gracyalny and Allan Industries, a national cleaning and maintenance company founded and run by her parents, Paul and Eleanor Gracyalny.

“On behalf of the entire Gracie’s team, we’re so honored to spend our Thanksgiving with the wonderful people from Re-Focus,” Ellen Gracyalny said in a statement. “It creates the most meaningful holiday for everyone involved.”

Gracie’s also again will feature recording artist and performer Stephen Roane of Madison, Ct., who will donate his time to play solo guitar for the Thanksgiving Day guests.

“We have boundless gratitude to Gracie’s and for the support provided by Allan Industries,” said Re-Focus executive director Christine M. Kavanagh, in a statement. “Our clients are able to spend Thanksgiving enjoying the most delicious dinner in the best restaurant in Rhode Island.”
