Sunshine Letter: Thanks for participating in Dining for Schools

Pilot Ron Pizer with two very happy new Young Eagles.

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.
