Amerigo's Tiramisu Fundraiser Brings in $2,200 for CARA
JACKSON, Miss. -- With several dogs and cats in attendance, Amerigo owner David Conn presented a $2,200 check to Community Animal Rescue & Adoption (CARA) representative Denise Cantrell in honor of the restaurant’s 30th anniversary. Amerigo opened its doors in 1987 and for three decades has enjoyed a reputation as Jackson’s neighborhood restaurant for Italian cuisine. To celebrate this anniversary, Amerigo pledged to donate $1 from the purchase of each tiramisu dessert to CARA during the month of June. Both the Ridgeland and Flowood locations participated in the benefit to raise money for animal welfare. The check presentation meant that over 2,200 tiramisus had been savored by Amerigo guests in June!
“We are very pleased that our customers embraced our pledge and Amerigo could give back to Jackson with this donation to CARA,” stated owner David Conn. “We have always believed in community involvement and will continue to express our gratitude to a city that has been so generous to us.”
CARA representative Denise Cantrell accepted the donation and expressed her appreciation, “This extremely generous Amerigo check will be so helpful in the care of our animals. We appreciate that the restaurant’s team supports our efforts in this way.”
