30th Anniversary Emerald Event Sponsor Citizens Bank enjoyed the Coolest Lunch at the Three Tomatoes Trattoria.

This year’s Coolest Lunch was a blast! We had 130 online reservations plus walk-ins and raised over $3,000!  Groups of students, coworkers, and friends ventured into the nippy outdoors and did their part to raise awareness for those who face exposure to the elements all day long.

Cheer and good spirits were high among participants.  The food was donated by the restaurants allowing 100% of proceeds to go straight towards helping fund homeless services and programs during the winter months.  Servers at the Farmhouse even donated their tips to the cause!

Leunig's Coolest LunchWe are so grateful to all the supporters of the Coolest Lunch, from the six restaurants participating—Leunig’s BistroThe Farmhouse Tap & GrillHalvorson’s Upstreet CafeThree Tomatoes TrattoriaThe Scuffer, and Boloco—to 30th Anniversary Emerald Event Sponsor Citizens Bank.

Special thanks also goes to Vermont Moving & Storage,who helped move the tables outside for this event, Lake Champlain Chocolates, and of course, to all the diners who came out to raise money and awareness about homelessness in our community.

At COTS, we believe in innovative solutions to end homelessness through prevention and rapid rehousing, and events like this help us to share our mission with the community.

Make sure to check out the fun “movie” style video—those who attended the event hold staring roles! And see if you can spot your friends in the 2012 Coolest Lunch Photo Album.
