To the editor,
On behalf of the Advisory Board and all the volunteers of Got Lunch! Laconia, we would like to sincerely thank the nine restaurants for participating and supporting our 3rd Annual Eat Out for Got Lunch! Laconia fund raiser. It was a great week of fun, food and friends while raising funds and awareness for the GOT LUNCH! Laconia program.
We were able to raise $2,446 from the donations given by T-Bones/Cactus Jack's, Fratello's, Village Bakery, Burrito Me, Hector's, Lyons' Den, Patrick's Pub & Eatery, Tavern 27and Brick Front! Our estimated cost for a summer of healthy lunches is $110 per child, so this donation will provide lunches for 22 of our city's children.
We also want to thank all the wonderful members of our community that went out to eat lunch and/or dinner at one of these superb restaurants to support a very important cause to help end childhood hunger in our city.
Please visit our website www.gotlunchlaconia.com to learn more about this fabulous program and see how you can get involved or make a donation. We also have our own Facebook site so go on and "like" us.
