Menu specials at local restaurant donates portion of proceeds to benefit Howell H.S. Advanced Arts Imaging Program
Pairing a unique ‘Dragon-themed’ menu with a local cultural festival to support a high school program is just one of the ways that the community is showing their support for the 3rd annual Lunar New Year Festival in downtown Howell. Held Saturday, February 20, the Howell Lunar Year festivities kick off with a Dragon Run 5K held on the grounds of Howell High School. To celebrate and give-back, Brunner’s Restaurant will offer breakfast and lunch specials to all race registrants who come in that day, with 10% off all proceeds supporting the Howell High School Advanced Arts Imaging program. This is the second year that Brunner’s is giving back to the students and offering a special Lunar New Year menu.
“Brunner’s is thrilled to help Howell High School’s Art program for the second year in row! This is an amazing program with some of the most amazing young adults. Please help support this program while enjoying a delicious breakfast and lunch.” Says Brunner’s owner, Cathy Russell.
In its third year, the Lunar New Year Festival is a project of the Howell Main Street DDA which brings in a variety of partners together to bring a family-friendly cultural festival to the heart of the Howell community. Partners include Howell High School students from Mr. John Mozdzierz’s Advanced Imaging class. These students submitted over 20 designs for the 2016 Dragon Run Race shirts. The winning designer(s) receive a gift certificate to enjoy at downtown businesses.
“Working with community partners is what the Main Street model is all about, and this partnership brings so many different organizations, leaders, and students together to celebrate and build awareness of another culture” States Howell Main Street DDA Director, Cathleen Edgerly.
