Congratulations to Hamilton Elementary School who was the winner of “Step Up to the Plate,” a partnership between Troy Chamber member restaurants and the Troy School District. The students at Hamilton took advantage of the restaurant discounts and collected the most receipts out of all the Troy schools.
As winner of the program, sponsored by Cornerstone Community Financial, Hamilton earned a $1,000 cash prize. Over the five-day period, restaurants offered diners 20% off their food purchases. Hamilton utilized their winnings from last year to add books to the fiction section in the school library.
“We are honored to sponsor this program,” said Serina Boyd, Branch Manager at Cornerstone Community Financial. “This is a great opportunity to give back to the community and also support local businesses.”
Since its inception, Step Up to the Plate program has rewarded thousands of dollars in cash prizes to Troy schools.
The program was made possible thanks to the support of 12 local restaurants including: Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Cedar Grille, Papa Romano’s Pizza / Mr. Pita, Granite City Food & Brewery, Tropical Smoothie Café, Steelhouse Tavern, Mr. Kabob Xpress, Olga’s Kitchen, Insalata, La Saj Lebanese Bistro, Maggiano’s Little Italy and Troy Escape.
The Step Up to the Plate program is slated to run again in November 2018. Visit www.troychamber.com or call 248-641-8151 for details about how you can participate.
