THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT at Chipotle last Thursday
Thanks to everyone who came to Chipotle last Thursday for our fundraiser. Unfortunately, we learned that day that Chipotle had a broken grill which significantly limited the food choices. This was outside of our control, but we know many of you were disappointed. We appreciate your support, nevertheless, and we expect that the evening was still a success. Thank you so much for coming to support us!!
