A Tasty Way to Donate
MiMo District Restaurants Donate to Children’s Charity
Miami – (June 9, 2009) Institute for Child & Family Health (“ICFH”) and the MiMo District restaurants join forces to help raise funds for health services for children at-risk. During the summer months patrons can dine at one the featured restaurants on the corresponding week and in turn they will donate 15% of the proceeds to the organization.
At least three restaurants have collaborated on the summer restaurant fundraiser: Casa Toscana, Moonchine, and Anise Taverna. These restaurants are located in the MiMo (Miami Modern) postwar architecture historic district. All proceeds raised from the promotion will be donated to ICFH, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the lives of children by providing services that enhance their emotional, physical, and educational well-being.
Nina Hamilton, Vice-President of the board of directors for ICFH is pleased to partner with the MiMo District Restaurants “We are excited to be a part of the MiMo Restaurants fundraiser and appreciate the generosity of the donations to ICFH. The added exposure of this fundraiser helps us raise the visibility of the valuable services we provide in the community.”
Fran Rollason, President of the MiMo Biscayne Association explains the importance of the MiMo District to the history of Miami. “The City of Miami designated the MiMo Biscayne Boulevard District historic June 2006 because of its high concentration of historic structures giving it the distinction of being the City’s only commercial historic district.”
The public is invited to participate in this fundraiser by dining at the restaurants from June till the end of August. For more information on this promotion please visit www.icfhinc.org.
