10/24/2011 ~ Park 2 Park Ride
This summer Country Pasta helped support the Park 2 Park ride in Montana. Bicycle riders begin their journey at Glacier National park and ride for several days, until they reach Yellowstone National Park, a total of about 400 miles. This event supports CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates. CASA volunteers help abused and neglected children in Montana, and this year’s event raised over $60,000 for the cause. Below is a heartfelt letter from the race coordinator. Thanks everyone for doing your part!
Park 2 Park 2011 is “in the books!” I’m sure you’ve heard from Susen by now. It was a wonderfully successful ride with a full group of 51 full time riders and 4 part time, and preliminary reports are that we are very close to our goal for fund raising. In addition, everyone enjoyed the ride! Thank you to Country Pasta along with many other donors who helped to support the ride in so many ways. The pasta dish was a great hit for our dinner in Livingston on Thursday evening, and the samples were placed at each place setting on the tables. They disappeared quickly!! Thanks for introducing me to Country Pasta! I’ve been promoting your products every chance I get these days, including our soup luncheon at church last Sunday! Thank you for supporting Susen, for your support of Park 2 Park, and, most importantly, your support of the children in the CASA programs in Montana. Sincerely, Shirley Folkwein Park 2 Park Coordinator
