Boys Golf Fundraiser @ Bloomington Noodles on 9/7

On Wednesday September 7th if you or anyone you know eats at Noodles from 4-9, 10% of the proceeds will benefit the boys golf team. Please note that this is only available at the Bloomington location, on Veterans Pwky. I know the date may be tough for some of you as varsity is out of town that night and at 6:30 is the U-High open house. But perhaps you will want to eat out prior to going to the open house, as there really won't be time to make dinner after work :-)

Please help me spread the word by inviting your friends and colleagues. Attached is information about the benefit. I do not know if you need to bring in one of the coupons (attached) or just mention U-High golf team.

Contact Lori Baracani (309-454-2456 or if you have questions.
