Amy Igloi recognized for efforts to help others

Port Orchard’s Amy Igloi was among 11 Washington employers recognized for their exceptional commitment to philanthropy and corporate citizenship May 7 at the Davenport Hotel.

SPOKANE — Port Orchard’s Amy Igloi was among 11 Washington employers recognized for their exceptional commitment to philanthropy and corporate citizenship May 7 at the Davenport Hotel.

Igloi, 32, who opened Amy’s On The Bay in April 2006 at the former J.J.’s restaurant location on Bay Street, was recognized for her volunteerism.

“These awards highlight what we have always known: Washington businesses take their responsibility to the community seriously,” said AWB President Don Brunell. “The 11 employers we honored this year not only displayed that commitment, but they also showed that it’s possible to find new and more effective ways to give back. Need will never go away, but the ways to address it must evolve. These businesses are leading the way.”

Some of Igloi’s beneficiaries include South Kitsap Helpline, Festival of Chimes & Lights, Manchester Salmon Bake and Washington Special Olympics.

This is not the first honor for Igloi or her restaurant. In 2008, Amy’s On The Bay was recognized by the National Restaurant Association with its Restaurant Neighbor Award, which recognizes restaurants “that go above and beyond in community service and aims to inspire other restauranteurs to get or stay involved in their local communities,” according to a WRA news release.

“Once I invite you under my wing, I want to inspire you to do the right things,” Igloi said at the time.
