Opening Doors for Children & Families

Fondue Raisers

I'm pretty sure I've said it before BUT I'll say it again, Edmonton is such a generous city. We truly live in a city that is committed to making Edmonton a better place for children and families and supporting communities to be the best they can be. From individual citizens to companies people are willing to give their time, talents and money to a great cause.

A great example of this commitment to community is the Melting Pot of Edmonton. If you haven't eaten there, RUN don't walk, because it is an AMAZING experience. It is a fondue restaurant located in south Edmonton. ABC Head Start is extremely excited to be the charity of the month for April at the Melting Pot. This is not only a great opportunity to raise funds to enable ABC Head Start to continue the important work we do giving children the skills they need to be successful in their educational journey and supporting families to transition out of poverty, it is also a DELICIOUS opportunity.

Never in my professional career did I think that I would have the chance to create a SIGNATURE CHOCOLATE FONDUE. The thought of it makes my mouth water, I think there will be a lot of "practicing" in my kitchen to get the flavours right. A dollar from every ABC Head Start signature chocolate fondue ordered in the month of April will go directly to support our programs.

On Monday, April 28th the Melting Pot is hosting a Girl's Night Out. It will feature a specialty menu with local and seasonal flavors, as well as $7 specialty drinks and $7 feature glasses of wine. ABC Head Start gets to choose the theme for the evening and we have some very exciting things in store! There will be a chance to buy tickets for a fabulous raffle prize with all proceeds of the raffle going to ABC Head Start. Click here to sign up for the Club Fondue to receive information about tickets. Then all you have to do is get a group of your best girlfriends together for a GIRLS NIGHT OUT for a great cause!

I invite all of you to join us at the Melting Pot in the month of April to experience an incredible meal and support Edmonton's children and families. Make sure to check out our silent auction item in the lobby of the restaurant and bid on what promises to be an incredible prize. We are keeping it a secret for now, but I promise you will want to take it home. All proceeds from the silent auction item will go to ABC Head Start.

Do you have a favourite chocolate fondue and would love to see it as ABC Head Start's Signature Chocolate Fondue? Share it with me! development@abcheadstart.org.
