Taste Fundraiser Raises $12K
On May 23, more than 200 people came out to support LHiNC’s Taste of Linden Hills Fundraiser at St. Thomas the Apostle. The delicious event brought together neighborhood restaurants, musicians and neighbors to raise more than $12,000 for LHiNC’s Neighborhood Grants program. Thank you to everyone who came out to support the event, especially the restaurants that generously donated their time and delightful tastes: Bread and Pickle, Cafe Ceres, Coffee and Tea, Great Harvest, Harriet Brasserie, Linden Hills Co-op, Naviya’s, Martina, Rosalia, Old Southern BBQ, and Tilia.
Each spring, LHiNC awards $1,000 scholarships to two Southwest High School graduates who show dedication to community service. The scholarships are funded by the Taste of Linden Hills Fundraiser held in May. Congratulations to this year’s winners:
• Karli Taney - chosen for her dedicated commitment and volunteering experience at Feed My Starving Children and Caring Hands, and for helping neighbors with yard work.
• Jack Bode - chosen for his dedication to multiple community volunteering projects through National Honor Society.
