KIDS FOR a Cause raised $1

FORTY-TWO people enjoyed a meal and raised money for a great cause at the same time April 15.

Relay for Life team Kids for a Cause raised $1,565 when they sold tickets for dinner at Don Diego’s and prepped, plated and served the meal.

“It was a fabulous opportunity that Gerran [Thorhaug, Don Diego’s owner] provided to the team,” said parent Lisa Stella.

“Not many 14-year-olds get to experience a little taste of what it takes to be in the restaurant business.”

The team’s members, all of whom are14-years-old and 15-years-old, were split into two groups: one set up, served and cleaned up with the help of staff member Jen Lacey, who donated her time, and the other group worked in the kitchen with Jeremy Jones and Thorhaug preparing and plating the food, said Stella.

Guests were served chips, salsa and a choice from four entrees and dessert.

Thorhaug covered all the expenses and it was his idea for the team to do the event, said Stella.

This is the fourth year for the Kids for a Cause team, and the kids are the top team fundraiser as of April 19.

The Relay for Life takes place from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. May 12 at the Skeena Junior Secondary track. Nearly $50,000 has been raised already.
