Giardinos Gourmet Salads was proud to partner up with the University of Miami to help promote Greek Week as well as lending they’re hand to help raise Money For Cerebral Palsy. “We love working with schools and universities on outreach programs because students are such a big part of our clientele. What’s better than eating fresh, healthy and delicious food, and serving a worthy and important cause,” says Jaime Mitrani, co-owner of Giardino Gourmet Salads South Miami.
Sporting the University of Miami colors, orange and green balloons filled the room and helped bring in a crowd of hungry University students.
“Giving back to the community is also something that Giardino prides itself on and we as store owners are open to these events with other organizations throughout the year.” Robert Fuerth Co-owner
Roughly 700 people came out to support the cause, enjoying a variety of tasty foods including Salads, wraps, and soups. Students were given 15% off the Greek Village Salad and an extra 10% off all other items on the menu. The event helped raise nearly $1,000 as a result of serving in upwards of 700 salads.
