Thanks for helping Aavid employees' 'Amazing Race' downtown

To The Daily Sun,

On Friday, May 20, Aavid Thermalloy hosted our first team-building "Amazing Race" activity in Laconia's fabulous downtown area. The teams began their adventure with a coffee treat at Wayfarer Coffee Roasters, where they were presented with their first clue. This first of 15 picture clues led the teams to local businesses, where they had to perform tasks like walking a dog, sweeping hair, playing a kazoo, singing a song, getting a (temporary) tattoo, dressing up in costumes, trying on funny face coasters, and possibly walking away with a diamond.

The teams raced to the finish to Hector's Fine Food & Spirits, which hosted our team-building wrap-up celebration. I want to express Aavid's appreciation to the locally-owned businesses which supported our event. It was a huge success and we hope to have many more like this in the future.

Our sincere thanks go out to All My Life Jewelers, Bead Divine, Bubba's Blues, Burrito Me, Greenlaw's Music and Audio, Hector's Fine Food & Spirits, Holy Grail of the Lakes, New England Porch Rockers, Polished & Proper Barbershop & Shave Parlor, Prescott's Florist, Some Funky Skills Tat2ing, Sunday's Salon & Spa, The Studio, U-Frame We Frame and Wayfarer Coffee Roasters for their participation in our event.

$2,960 was raised by sixth edition of Eat Out for Got Lunch Laconia

To The Daily Sun,

The sixth year of Eat Out for Got Lunch! Laconia Restaurant Week was a huge success.

The Advisory Board and all the volunteers would like to sincerely thank the 10 restaurants for participating and supporting our program. It was a great week of fun, food and friends while raising funds and awareness for our summer healthy lunch program.

We were able to raise $2,960 from the donations given by T-Bones/Cactus Jack's, Village Bakery, Burrito Me, Hector's, Patrick's Pub, The Eatery, Tavern 27, Brick Front, Holy Grail of the Lakes Region and Faro Italian Grill.

It costs $120 to feed a child a healthy lunch for the summer break. This donation will help feed 24 of Laconia's finest kids. We want to thank all the wonderful members of our community that went out to eat lunch/dinner at one of these restaurants to support a very important cause to help end childhood hunger in our city.

We also want to recognize and thank The Laconia Daily Sun for their continuing support with the advertising of this annual event.

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.
