The results are in! Dream Dinners stores nationwide put their game faces on for “March Matchness,” a unique program that allowed guests to host in-store fundraising events and give back to their favorite local organizations while helping to bring families together around the dinner table.
At the end of the month, the top six fundraisers nationwide received matching donations of up to $1,000 each. Altogether, the Dream Dinners family across the nation rallied together to donate $15,000 to a variety of great local causes throughout the month of March.
We’re proud to announce the complete list of organizations receiving matching donations:
- Mission Estancia (Dream Dinners in Encinitas, CA)
- Encinitas Country Day (Dream Dinners in Encinitas, CA)
- Tustin Meal Packaging Event (Dream Dinners in Tustin, CA)
- CCA Dollars for Scholars (Dream Dinners in Solana Beach, CA)
- Central Coast Elite (Dream Dinners in San Luis Obispo, CA)
- Oceanside Lacrosse (Dream Dinners in Encinitas, CA)
Dream Dinners guests raised even more by contributing to the Living the Dream Foundation’s “Round Up” program. Customers are able to “round up” their total to the nearest full dollar while proceeds go to fight hunger in their local communities and abroad. The Living the Dream Foundation also kicked off a “Meal of the Month” program in May, in which a portion of the proceeds from one designated meal per month will be donated to the Foundation.
Many Dream Dinners stores will be continuing to host fundraising events throughout the year, giving back to their local communities while spreading our mission of growing great kids—a win/win for everyone involved.
As Dream Diners continues to celebrate our fifteenth anniversary, we thank our loyal customers for coming together and making an incredible impact on our local communities.
