We’ve just received the results from Ragazza’s January fundraiser, the proceeds of which are going to a former employee’s recovery from a violent crime.
The final total? Just over $25,000.
In an email this morning, the Ragazza folks tell us that the 65-prize eBay auction raised a whopping $18,600. Additionally, a fundraiser dinner on January 24th raised about $6,500. With $2,000 going to Ragazza’s fiscal sponsor, the non-profit incubator kitchen La Cocina, that means a total of $23,200 will go to the victim, to cover medical expenses, health care and replacement of stolen property.
Congrats to all the auction winners, and kudos to Ragazza for organizing such a successful and generous event!
