The Pizza Hut on Route 60 in Fredonia will hold its annual Laurel Run "Fun"draiser on Monday.
Throughout the day, the restaurant will donate 20 percent of each order to Laurel Run. To have Pizza Hut donate 20 percent of your order to Laurel Run, you must fill out a coupon and give it to your server. For a printable form of the coupon, go to www.laurel-run.com, or call The Resource Center at 483-2344. Pizza Hut likely will have extra coupons, so if you forget to bring the coupon with you, notify your server that you are there to support Laurel Run. The fund-raising promotion also applies to take-out orders, so if you call to place your order, let Pizza Hut know you are supporting Laurel Run.
The 17th annual Laurel Run will be held July 19-20. The event was created by Wayne and Elaine Hotelling of Silver Creek in honor of their oldest daughter, who has Down syndrome. Laurel Run was established to raise public awareness about the potential existing within everyone who has a disability.
Getting ready for the Pizza Hut “Fun”draiser are, from left, Elaine Hotelling; Dan Bolles, General Manager of Pizza Hut; Laurel Hotelling; and John D’Agostino, Publisher of the OBSERVER.
Money raised through Laurel Run is directed to Filling the Gap, Inc., which works with The Resource Center to support people with disabilities in Chautauqua County. Laurel Run proceeds are used in two ways to pay for disability awareness and prevention efforts and to enhance employment and work training opportunities for people with disabilities.
