PARSIPPANY — Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany Foundation received a donation from Gourmet Cafe.
Accepting the donation was Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany President Frank Cahill, Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany Foundation President Greg Elbin and Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany President-Elect Karen DeChristopher.
Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany participated in Gourmet Cafe’s “Make-a-difference Monday” fundraiser.
Since the owner/chef Matthew Pierone started the program in May of 2008 Gourmet Cafe has donated over $71,000 to non-profit groups raising money for their organizations.
Although December 4 was the last day of the program, groups can still count on Gourmet Cafe for help with fundraising through the restaurant. Gift certificate and other cash donations this year were an additional $2,000 plus.
Thank you to all of those involved including my staff.
On Monday, December 11 and Monday, December 18, Gourmet Cafe will be donating 10% of the sales to Toys for Tots and the Salvation Army.
