'Dine Out' to Benefit Sparta Schools
Food purchases Monday and Tuesday will raise money for township schools.
The Sparta Education Foundation and local business Trellis have teamed up to raise money for township schools.
The foundation and business will be holding two "dine out" dates on Monday and Tuesday for residents to donate.
Trellis, a new phone application for iPhone and Androids, works with local Sparta merchants to let customers do everything from a ordering from a restaurant to signing up for a class at a nearby gym.
Several businesses in Sparta have agreed to be a part of the "dine outs" next week. All residents have to do to participate is order meals through Trellis from the partcipating businesses.
The vendors involved are Augies, Café Pierrot, Chicken Dun Rite, Cloveberry, Fus, Kroghs, TJs Pizza, and Villa Capri.
The restaurants will donate 10 percent of the proceeds of the meals purchased through Trellis to the foundation.
The "dine out" includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.
According to a statement released by the foundation, Trellis owner by Kevin Kowalski approached the foundation to help them out the week of Thanksgiving.
"Lots of people don’t feel like cooking that week,” Kowalski said in the statement. "It’s a busy time for the food merchants throughout town, and this would be a great opportunity for people to try the app."
