#KendallWhittier is Masked Up!
We had some fun with a COVID safe favorite mask contest! Masked Up photos from participating Kendall Whittier businesses were posted on social media for two weeks. The business’ photo that received the most likes won bragging rights and a donation in their name to a local nonprofit of their choice! The donation amount is $1 per like up to $150!
San Miguel, located right in Kendall Whittier on Admiral, is dedicated to helping children from challenging environments, regardless of race, nationality or religion, to achieve academic and personal success. Its education designed to prepare students for high school and beyond – typically college or vocational training – to help them become productive adults and break the cycle of poverty. San Miguel is an independent, gratuitous school, meaning 95% of the operating funds come from donations, grants and fundraising. Parents provide a modest “copay” for their child’s education, and contribute to the school by giving their time and talent.
Kendall Whittier’s most delicious contest, Eat Eight, will wrap up for 2020 on July 31 after a four-month extension.
Eat Eight generally happens during the month of March with entries due on March 31. Kendall Whittier Main Street, the event’s host organization, extended the deadline in mid-March after restaurants and eateries were forced to close due to COVID-19.
“We wanted those who started the contest to still get to finish it, so we opted to extend it until after the participating businesses reopened,” said Jessica Jackson, KWMS Executive Director. “Most business have now reopened regular hours or have served from their food truck.”
Participating businesses are: 918 Coffee, Calaveras Mexican Grill, Cancun International Restaurant, Dena’s Lebanese Cuisine, Fair Fellow Coffee Roasters, Freddie’s Hamburgers, Jane’s Delicatessen and Pancho Anaya Bakery.
As part of the contest, participants each at those eight Kendall Whittier restaurants and collect stamps. Once all eight are completed, entry forms are turned in for a chance to win the $800 drawing.
Once complete, entry forms can be mailed or dropped off to the Main Street office at 2205 E. Admiral Blvd., or emailed to info@visitKendallWhittier.com. The deadline is 9 p.m. Friday, July 31. Any participant who turned in their entry form in March is still eligible.
The winner will be selected and notified in early August.
