SCAN’s 31st Annual Brown Bag Lunch Fundraiser To Feature Food Donated By Casa Restaurants

SCAN, Inc. is accepting lunch orders for its 31st Annual Brown Bag Lunch fundraiser to take place on Wednesday, March 16, from 11:00am-1:00pm. Casa Restaurants will donate 3,000 lunches featuring pasta with meatballs and Casaburo salad. SCAN is excited to partner with a new location for this annual event! The Summit, 1025 W. Rudisill Blvd., will host the 31st Annual Brown Bag Lunch fundraiser.

SCAN could not have this fundraising event without the generosity and support of everyone at Casa Restaurants, event sponsors and in-kind donors, and over 150 dedicated volunteers. Casa chefs, along with community volunteers and SCAN employees, will prepare, package, and deliver 3,000 lunches in just over two hours.

Lunches must be pre-ordered, and are anticipated to sell out for the fourth consecutive year. New this year, orders can be placed online! They can also be submitted by mail, fax, or over the phone. SCAN encourages those interested to order as soon as possible to guarantee a lunch. Proceeds from this event benefit services and programs that support SCAN’s mission to protect children, prepare parents, strengthen families, and educate our community to Stop Child Abuse and Neglect.

The 31st Annual Brown Bag Lunch fundraiser offers several lunch options. For $9, you can purchase an individual portion of pasta with meatballs and a side Casaburo salad. For $7, you can purchase a large Casaburo salad. Family style meals are also available. Serving up to 20 people, these meals are $180 for pasta with meatballs and a side Casaburo salad. All lunches include a dinner roll, butter, a sweet treat, and thank you card. Family style orders also include a sheet cake donated by Walnut Hill Catering and Events.

Lunches will be available for pick-up the day of the event at The Summit, or for free delivery with a minimum of seven individual or one family style order. Delivery must be within one mile of the Interstate 69 and 469 boundaries or no further north than Huntertown.
