There is such great generosity in this community. During the last month, this was demonstrated by the two very successful fundraisers held in support of Lifelong by two local business – Ciao! and Kilpatrick’s – and three wonderful people – Jerry & Margaret Dietz and Carrie Shearer.
On October 18th, Ciao!, held a Philanthropic Friday and donated a portion of their pizza sales to Lifelong. Carrie Shearer and, as a couple, Jerry & Margaret Dietz matched each dollar, tripling the amount that Lifelong received. Ciao! is located at 2 Hickory Hollow Lane, near the mall and specializes in wood-fired pizza & pasta.
Through the month of October, Kilpatrick’s designated a portion of the profits from their “Pub with a Purpose” held during their Tuesday Happy Hour to be given to Lifelong. Kilpatrick’s Publick House, Ithaca’s only Irish pub, is located at Seneca House, in the Hilton Garden Inn on Seneca and Tioga.
Between the two fundraisers, a total of about $5,000 was donated! Thank you Ciao!, Carrie, Jerry & Margaret, and Kilpatrick’s for your support of Lifelong!!
