Dine & Donate - Slamburger  3/28
It was so fun last time, we thought we'd do it again!  Take 2...Dine & Donate at Slamburger.  Come have a wonderful burger, fresh crisp salad, some amazingly good Brussel sprouts (yes, really!) or a perfect milk shake.  A portion of the night's proceeds will go right back to Grant. Consider inviting families of your child's classmates and make a really great night out of it!  Remember to bring your Slamburger Dine & Donate form.  A copy was sent home but if you need to print one out  email kimmccallister@gmail.comfor a digital copy.
