On Thursday, September 29th, the Mid-Prairie Foundation and Mid-Prairie Alumni & Friends Association are asking you to dine out to make a difference.
Dine Out To Make A Difference is an all day event that connects the community with the local businesses in the Kalona, Wellman, and Riverside area. The businesses include Bender’s Bar and Grill, DJ’s Casual Cafe, Hard Luck Cafe, Kalona Brewing Company, Kalona Chocolates, Kalona Coffee House, Kalona General Store, La Chiva Loka Restaurant, Los Amigos Taqueria, Madeline’s Coffee House, Tuscan Moon, Tequilla Grill, and Yotty’s Ice Cream. Dine in or take out at any of these restaurants, and a portion of the sales will be donated to both Mid-Prairie organizations.
The organizations had previously held a golf tournament in the summer, but felt it was time to change things a little and allow more of the community to participate.
The Mid-Prairie Foundation awards scholarships to graduating seniors, and the Mid-Prairie Alumni & Friends Association contributes to the newsletter, alumni awards, and other community events.
For more information, visit either organization’s Facebook page or the Mid-Prairie School District Page, where the event fliers can be found. The fliers will also be hung up the week of the event.
You may need to notify the business that you are participating in the event.
