Easterly Parkway PTO latest to do fundraising local-food style with Harrison’s Wine Grill

Posted by Jamie Oberdick on 03/21 at 09:13 AM

Harrison’s Wine Grill and Catering has established itself as a go-to place for outstanding dining with a local food focus, but they also conduct one of the most-delicious and well-respected fundraising programs in the state. Harrison’s Eat Well Fundraising program has been awarded the National Restaurant Association’s 2010 Good Neighbor Award and the CBICC’s 2010 Philanthropy Award.

State College’s Easterly Parkway PTO and Harrison’s are once again teaming up for an Eat Well fundraiser. From today though Sunday, March 30, if you mention to your Harrison’s server that you are a supporter of Easterly Parkway PTO, Harrison’s will donate 20 percent of your check before taxes and gratuity to Easterly Parkway PTO. But that’s not all.

If you want a date night but always have a hard time finding a sitter for your kids, Easterly Parkway PTO can help you with that. On Friday, March 28, Easterly Parkway PTO will provide childcare at the school from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the school. Children must be potty trained and at least 3-years-old to participate. A follow-up email from the PTO will give you a link to an online registration form, then you call Harrison’s for a reservation. Reservations at both Harrison’s and the childcare are limited and are on a first-come, first-serve basis. For any questions, be sure to contact Maria Meyer of the PTO at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Please note that any frequent diner points and gift certificates cannot be redeemed in conjunction with any Harrison’s fundraiser.

Along with helping a great organization, you will also experience one of Central Pennsylvania’s top locations for local food that makes for a great date night experience. From starters to salads to entrees, Chef Harrison Schailey combines local ingredients with his creativity to produce dishes that will take your palate around the globe. To see their menus, please go here.

The Easterly Parkway PTO hopes to see you there and thanks you for your support. For more information on how your organization can have a tasty fundraiser too, please go here and scroll down to “Community Fundraising.”
