It’s a quick post, but one worthy to mention….
Although we have yet to receive all of the donation checks from the host restaurants for this year’s 2016 Spoke & Food event, what we can tell you is that the sum received to date has surpassed what was raised for last year’s 2015 event. A big ‘thank you’ goes to all of you who biked and dined at one of our host restaurants this year and to all of the host restaurants themselves who each agreed to donate 20% of their total sales from our event evening to our charity partner, the Hunger Intervention Program.
Here’s what we’re looking at in terms of the money raised:
2015: $4,692 raised for Seattle Neighborhood Greenways
2014: $6,200 raised for the Outdoors For All Foundation
2013: $6,080 raised for Bike Works
2012: $4,450 raised for FamilyWorks Resource Center & Foodbank
2011: $3,200 raised for the Children’s Garden program at Seattle Tilth
2010: All funds were given to the Lettuce Link program at Solid Gound
The big question for this year is if we will surpass our record set in 2014 where $6,200 was raised. Stay tuned as we continue to pester the last remaining host restaurants to submit their donation check….
