Last Friday, our friends at Whole Foods at The Domain helped us raise nearly $1200 for Austin Bat Cave’s free writing programs for kids! We had a blast at First Friday telling our mission to over a hundred shoppers who came to drink wine and eat delicious morsels created by all different departments of Whole Foods.
Where else can you eat candied octopus and scallops with a Savignon Blanc or pumpkin cake balls with a Malbec or try their beers and cider with sausage? All for $10. Our newsletter sign-up, volunteer sheets and tummies were filled by the end. Volunteer Paula Fontaine-Haake, Board President Claudia Chidester and Sofia Sokolove, our amazing Development officer, never grew weary of watching the eyes of the customers grow wide with interest: “Really? My tasting some of the best food in town is going to help kids? Wow.”
Thank you, Whole Foods!
— Claudia Chidester, ABC Board President
