Annually Tomatofest hosts an annual occasion to boost monetary and non-perishable donations for native meals pantries. With the occasions of Covid-19, we’ve shifted our efforts from the annual downtown occasion to new occasions so we might proceed with our mission of serving to the group of Cayuga County. On Saturday, Could 30, we hosted our first ever drive-thru can drive and pizza fritte. Thanks to the group for making it an enormous success.
The can drive introduced out tons of of vehicles. The donations far surpassed our expectations, gathering over $9000 in non-perishable objects for 9 meals pantries. As well as, we obtained money donations of $1108 and the pizza fritte raised a further $1722! A particular thanks to C.I.A.O. for offering the pizza fritte and volunteers for the occasion.
Thanks to our sponsors and companions: C.I.A.O., Cayuga County Sheriff, Perform4Purpose, Auburn Police Division and B.O.C.E.S. It’s with the assistance of those companions that we have been capable of create a protected occasion for the group. As a group, we raised over $12,000 in non-perishable objects and money donations for the meals pantries, throughout a time that so many battle to offer meals for his or her households. The Board Members of Tomotafest are so grateful for the generosity and help of the group.
We’re planning extra occasions over the subsequent months to make sure that we are able to present the help to the pantries that we’ve performed over the past 20 years. We look ahead to seeing the group come out and help our efforts throughout these unsure instances. Once more, thanks for making our first drive-thru can drive so profitable!
