FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - Oct 29, 2012) - Taverna Greek Grill (www.TavernaGreekGrill.com) is sponsoring the November 17th Charity Walk to Benefit St. Jude Children's Hospital (www.stjude.org). Registration starts at 8 am and the run starts at 9 am. Additional information is available at http://fundraising.stjude.org/site/TR?fr_id=3727&pg=entry
This event is a continuation of the extensive charity work Taverna has become accustomed to in Fort Collins. For example, Taverna Greek Grill has strongly supported Kristi's Fund (www.kristisfund.com), a charity established as a living memorial for Bob and Donna Visocky's daughter Kristi, who was killed by a drunk driver at the age of 21. Kristi's Fund raises money to help send young women to college.
"Managing Partner Ryan Rezinas and The Taverna Greek Grill have wholeheartedly supported Kristi's Fund, providing food and prizes as well as personnel," states Bob Visocky. "We greatly appreciate their support and look forward to working with them in the future on Kristi's Fund and various other worthy charitable organizations."
Taverna has worked to benefit a number of local charities and organizations, including:
- NoCo Active 20/30 club (www.noco2030.org),
- Realities for Children (www.realitiesforchildren.com),
- Children's Advocacy Center (www.larimercac.org),
- The Fort Collins International Center (www.fortcollinsinternationalcenter.org), and
