The Davis Schools Foundation would like to thank Rostini Italian Kitchen for sponsoring a terrific fundraiser for Davis schools on Saturday. We were delighted that the offer of a free dinner in exchange for a donation to our nonprofit foundation brought out so many families. All told, we collected $3,765 at the door.
Throughout the evening, our donors enjoyed seeing the restaurant before it officially opened and sampling its offerings. Many diners made positive comments about the varied menu as well as the individual dishes. We urge community members to visit Rostini, now open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily in The Marketplace at West Covell Boulevard and Sycamore Lane.
The Davis Schools Foundation works closely with individuals, businesses, school communities and other groups to raise money for our K-12 schools. Since our inception in 2005, we have granted $3.2 million to the Davis Joint Unified School District to help preserve an excellent education for all. The funds raised on Saturday will be granted to the district for the 2011-12 school year.
Once again, thanks to Rostini for hosting a wonderful benefit for DSF.
