Eating For the Children

UPDATE: The first Dining for a Cause event held Monday at Frackelton's restaurant in downtown Sheridan was a success, according to organizers, with more than $14,000 raised by night's end.

As part of the event, owner Kim Love agreed to donate all sales for dinner and lunch to The Food Group to help feed local school children on the weekends. The restaurant was fully booked.

Executive Director Missi Hubert was there and she was taken aback by how many people came to support the cause. The Food Group, developed five years ago, helps more than 400 K-12 students from lower income families in the area receive food to take home on the weekends.

Meadowlark Elementary Second Grade Teacher Lynette Jost said she and other teachers were more than happy to come out and help with the program.

Pictures from the event can be found below.
