LCCC STUDENTS TO HOST DINING TO DONATE EVENT FOR HARVEST FOR HUNGER CAMPAIGN

Elyria, OH, March 15, 2013– On March 26 students of LCCC’s Conference and Meeting Management class and the LCCC Enactus Team (formerly Students in Free Enterprise) are hosting a Dining to Donate event at Applebee’s Restaurant (35916 Detroit Road in Avon, Ohio.) The event is part of the Harvest for Hunger campaign that takes place during the month of March. 

Applebee’s will donate 15 percent of each check when an event flyer is presented to the server. The donation can be applied to either dine-in or Carside To Go orders.  The hours of the event are 11 a.m. until 9 p.m.

The students will also hold a raffle for a quilt at the restaurant.  Raffle tickets donations are $1.00. All proceeds from the dining orders and the raffle will be donated to Harvest for Hunger.
The money that is donated to Harvest for Hunger stays in the four counties that it serves: Crawford, Erie, Huron, and Lorain. Six meals can be provided for every dollar donated. The food and funds raised are put to use by local organizations serving individuals in need of assistance. 

Event fliers can be picked up in the Business Division office (BU211) or the Student Life information desk (second floor of College Center) at Lorain County Community College’s main campus. Fliers can also be found on the event’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/events/610278015664770/.
