Eat, Drink, Dine Kingsville Achieves Fundraising Milestone For Local Schools

Sunday January 7th, 2024, 12:00pm


Eat, Drink, Dine Kingsville, an association of local foodfocused businesses, has reached a significant fundraising achievement in its ongoing commitment to supporting local education in the town.

This year’s fundraising efforts culminated in a substantial donation of $24,368 to Kingsville Public School, Jack Miner Public School, St. John de Brebeuf
Catholic Elementary School, and Gosfield North Public School. Since 2017, the non-profit association has contributed over $150,000 to the four Kingsville-area schools.

The innovative fundraising program, which involves selling $25 gift cards redeemable at member restaurants, butcher shops, markets, and attractions, has become a cornerstone of community engagement in Kingsville.

The funds raised through this program have been instrumental in providing the schools with resources, including technological equipment and educational materials,
directly benefiting the students’ learning experience.

“The overwhelming success of this program is a reflection of our community’s dedication to supporting local education,” said Heather Brown, Gift Card Program
Coordinator at EDDK. “We are immensely proud of what we have accomplished together and are thrilled to continue making a positive impact on our local schools.”
