Treva also supported CitySingers' holiday concerts by offering free dessert coupons for people who came to our voluntary offering Jubilo concerts last December. Mr. Puka sets a fine example as one of West Hartford's true business 'neighbors'. Hats off, Treva! John Church, Co-Manager, CitySingers of Hartford

Plus, he's a West Hartford resident, too. He's a great example of a business owner who supports his community in so many ways.

And that's not all! Treva donated delicious food to Lynn Evans Potpourri Designs in West Hartford Center in October for the Barbara Delinsky book signing event to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer. In addition, Mr. Puka is supporting the UConn Health Center White Coat Gala on April 21st by donating an elegant dinner for four plus a wine pairing to the Gala's fundraising auction. Not only is Treva's food delicious beyond compare, but I agree with Mr. Church. Dorjan Puka exemplifies the true spirit of "community". If you have not yet experienced Mr. Puka's warmth and hospitality, please make your reservations now. The experience is well worth the wait!
