FORT WAYNE, Ind. (NEWSRELEASE) - SCAN, Inc. will host its 34th Annual Brown Bag Lunch fundraiser on Wednesday, March 6, from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Proceeds from the event support SCAN’s mission to protect children, prepare parents, strengthen families and educate our community to Stop Child Abuse and Neglect.
“Each year, our community steps up in a collective effort to stop child abuse and neglect through our Brown Bag Lunch fundraiser,” said Deanna Szyndrowski, Chief Executive Officer of SCAN, Inc. “It’s all made possible by the generosity of Casa Restaurants, event sponsors and more than 160 volunteers.”
Casa chefs, along with community volunteers and SCAN employees, will prepare, package, and deliver 2,900 lunches in two hours. SCAN anticipates the lunches will sell out, and community members are encouraged to pre-order lunches online, or via phone, fax or mail. The Brown Bag Lunch offers several options:
- An individual portion of pasta with meatballs and a side of Casaburo salad, dinner roll and sweet treat for $9
- An individual salad meal with a dinner roll and sweet treat for $7
- A family-style meal, serving up to 20 people, including pasta with meatballs, Casaburo salad, and a sheet cake donated by Walnut Hill Catering and Events for $180
Lunches will be available for pick-up on March 6 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at The Summit (1025 W. Rudisill Blvd., Fort Wayne).
