Thank you to our 39 participating restaurants and businesses who donated nearly $7500 to the ICCSD Foundation as a result of this event.  And thank you to all who came out and dined! The fall and spring Dine Out events this school year brought in about $17,000 in donations – all because you took a couple of nights off cooking!
