"Thanks for Giving" Fund Raiser

Thanks for Giving

For the last 21 years, Mark and Karen Curtis who run the Eagles Grill in downtown Framingham have provided a free Thanksgiving meal to all who need or want one-last year it was over 1,200 meals. They even deliver 450 meals to shut-ins on that day as well. Over the years, they have not solicited donations. This is the first year that some local churches have had to discontinue offering their Thanksgiving meals, and the Salvation Army has canceled their free Thanksgiving dinner as well. Please help support The Eagles Kitchen Thanksgiving Dinner!

FRAMINGHAM, MA - From November 15, 2010 until November 25, 2010 framingham.com is running a "Thanks for Giving" fund-raising special.

To help support The Eagles Kitchen Thanksgiving Dinner, and to promote Framingham businesses we are giving 50% OFF standard ad rates for all advertising orders placed this week if the advertiser donates the remaining 50% to help fund the dinner.

Here's how it works: Any local business that orders online advertising on framingham.com during the "Thanks for Giving" promotion will get a 50% discount off standard published rates, then the business sends a check or money order payable to "Eagles Kitchen Thanksgiving Dinner" for the other 50%.

For example: If an advertiser chose a $720/yr package, they would get that package for 50% OFF -- making the cost only $360, (for a full year of advertising -- that's less than $1.00 a day!)

If you own a Framingham business, or know someone who does, let them know about the "Thanks for Giving" promotion. ...[read more]
