Dining for a Cause
Families and friends of Concord Carousel Preschool came together at The Ninety Nine Restaurant to raise funds for the newly created Concord Carousel Preschool Scholarship Fund!
The Concord Carousel Preschool Scholarship Fund was officially kicked-off on March 8 with its first fundraiser, Dining for a Cause, at The Ninety Nine Restaurant. The Concord Carousel Preschool Scholarship Fund was formed in January, 2017 to provide financial assistance to families who could not send their children to Concord Carousel Preschool without aid.
Families and friends of The Concord Carousel Preschool came together to show their support by dining, or ordering takeaway, at The Ninety Nine Restaurant where 15% of their bill was donated by The Ninety Nine Restaurant to the scholarship fund raising nearly half of the proceeds for the event. Printing was generously provided by Summer Street Fine Consign/CAC Digital. Concord’s small businesses: The Beede Center, The Concord Cheese Shop, Concord Family Network, Concord Teacakes, The Ninety Nine Restaurant and Pub, Reasons to be Cheerful, West Concord Wine and Spirits; and a Carousel family graciously supported their community’s local preschool by donating the contents of the gift basket raffled off as part of the fund raiser. Attendees showed their love of the community's small businesses with raffle proceeds representing more than half of the funds raised.
Smiles and goodwill were abound throughout the evening. In addition to raising funds for the scholarship fund, the event continued to build upon the sense of community at The Concord Carousel Preschool with one student proclaiming ’This is the best night EVER!’.
