Boise restaurants Fork and ALAVITA asked the community to nominate local nonprofits to receive a donation from the restaurants’ Corkage for Community Fund. The top donation from the fund — $5,000 — went to Camp Rainbow Gold, a summer oncology camp for young cancer patients, their siblings and families. The organization, which also provides a college scholarship program and teen support group, is based in Boise with a satellite location in Ketchum.
Other donations from the Corkage for Community Fund went to Wish Granters ($2,500) and Project Kids, Inc. ($2,500). Wish Granters, founded in 2010, grants wishes to adults in Ada or Canyon counties who have terminal illnesses. Project Kids, Inc., gives financial assistance to students and families within the West Ada School District.View Full Article
