Lewie Parrish, the manager of Melting Pot restaurant in Jacksonville, recently presented a check for $2,255 to FSDB Director of Development Amy Moring. The donation was made possible through the proceeds of a month-long promotion at the restaurant.
The Melting Pot restaurant contributed $5 to support FSDB for every patron who ordered the special four-course $39 “Fondue Raiser” menu during August.
The FSDB Advancement Department wants to thank the 451 patrons and the Melting Pot Restaurant for their generous support of school-based student programs and activities.
