veggie u results

Hope everyone had a great holiday. Here’s to a 2012 filled with much health, happiness and joy (and of course, good eats!).

The Veggie U fundraiser has come to a close. We raised a total of $3,910, for a grand total of $11,750 donated since we started this drive in 2009. That is simply amazing – thank you. Thank you for your generosity, thank you for taking the time to learn about something you may not have been familiar with, thank you for spreading the word, and thank you for giving – especially this time of the year. It’s truly much appreciated by so many – especially the kids and their teachers.

And finally, a very special thank you to all those that donated gift cards. I didn’t have to beg any of you – you all quickly responded and freely offered to help without thinking twice. If it wasn’t for your continued generosity and willingness to support this cause, we would simply not have been able to raise anything. You are part of  the foundation that makes this such an amazing community.

And to Ron, Renee and Carrie… wow are you three lucky! Enjoy your free eats all year-long (and don’t be too surprised if you suddenly make some new friends!).

Heartfelt thanks to the generous Cleveland chefs and eateries who donated gift certificates. Finally, thank you to all the Cleveland Foodie fans who made contributions.
