Why should our feet have all the fun? To ring in summer 2013 and support the Shreveport Metropolitan Ballet, join us at one of our upcoming fundraisers!
On Tuesday, May 21st, stop by the Baskin Robbins store on Youree Drive for delicious ice cream treats between 5 and 9pm. SMB will receive 15% of the sales during those hours, so bring your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers for an impromptu ice cream party!
Then, settle into summer with an evening at Bistro Byronz on Tuesday, June 4th. If you dine in betwen 5 and 9pm that evening, Byronz will donate 20% of sales to SMB. You can also pick up food, and SMB gets 10%. Best of all, Bistro Byronz is currently matching fundraiser profits up to $200, so we have an opportunity to really maximize this event.
Call 221-8500 for further details – spread the word!
