Lylah's of Suttons BayLast year, when Roger Schaub, Broker/Owner of Schaub Team Premier Realty walked into Lylah’s sandwich shop in Suttons Bay and saw that his favorite special “Grilled Tuna & Swiss” had been put on their permanent sandwich board as “Not Tuna Schauby” he was inspired.  Cindy Henderson, Owner of Lylah’s cleverly named the sandwich after Roger because he always ordered it when it was available.  “We decided to put it on the menu and in fun named it after him”, Henderson explained.


“When I saw the sandwich named after us, my partner [and brother] Tim and I came to the quick conclusion that we wanted to do more”, stated Roger.  Schaubs decided they would donate $1 for every “Not Tuna Schauby” sold in 2022 to Leelanau Christian Neighbors, Blessings in a Backpack program.  Roger learned more about LCN’s program and the impact on our local children facing food insecurity while attending a Rotary meeting.

Mary Stanton, LCN Executive Director shared, “The donation of $682 will provide 5 children food on the weekends throughout the school year!”  “We provide bags of food each week to our elementary and middle school children and snack/hygiene boxes for our high school students,” continued Stanton.  “The support of our giving community is what makes this possible!”
