Excellence in Education Foundation would like to thank the 43 restaurants that participated in the 2014-15 Dining for Schools Card program. The card provides dining discounts for card purchasers throughout the Tahoe Truckee region.

The program wrapped up mid-June and brought in over $40,000 for the Foundation. We greatly appreciate the dedication these restaurants show to our community and local education. This year, the Foundation funded over $250,000 in classroom grants, teacher training and educator awards.

We would also like to thank the community members who regularly support our fundraising programs. The 2015-16 Dining for Schools card will go on sale at the end of August 2015.
