  • Little Manuel’s
  • Starbucks Coffee
  • Skipolini’s Pizza
  • Bases Loaded
  • Foster Freeze
  • Dairy Queen

Club President John Sullivan stated he was happy to have such a wide variety of food types participating and loved the idea of including Hazels Drive-in.

“Hazels brought you back to your days of high school,” said Sullivan. “They served you a quarter of a burger, a few fries, and a shake sample. I was really excited to see Hazels on the list. I thought Bases Loaded and Skipolini’s did a great job as well. It was good all the way around.”

Sullivan stated they had Mexican food, cheeseburgers, ice cream, different coffees from Starbucks which created it was a good atmosphere a little bit of something for everyone.

All funds for this event went into the Community Action Fund which gets spend for a variety of good deeds helping kids. For

example, funds could go to the Salvation Army after school program, Builders Club at Park Middle School, or many other local activities. They also provide funds to Project Eliminate—a neonatal Tetanus program for third world countries. They also give to the 100-Club which provides financial support to spouses of police officers and firefighters that are killed in the line of duty. They also provide scholarships to Antioch and Deer Valley high School Students.

“We couldn’t do what we do without local business support so it’s vital for local business to work with us an help us fund-raise. We thank all the local businesses for supporting our “Pride of the Delta” Restaurant Tour Sunday,” said Sullivan.

There next event is scheduled for December 14 which is the 37th Annual Holiday Run and Walk for Health Fair at Contra Loma Regional Park.  The Kiawnis are looking for Sponsors and Donations for the event.
