This year’s Annual National Conference was a memorable one! We want to especially send our thanks to the Missouri SNA volunteers for all of their hard work and dedication to making #ANC19 a success.
It was great to meet with scholarship winners throughout our five days in St. Louis. Past scholarship winners and state ambassadors were generous with their time, volunteering at the SNF booth to help us sell Golden Raffle tickets and spread the word about scholarship opportunities through the Foundation. Thank you to everyone who volunteered and visited the SNF booth, and thank you to School Nutrition Association, AccuTemp Products, and Schwan’s for your continued support of SNF scholarships.
We’d like to send a special shout out to SNF board member Jose Quinones of JTM Foods. Thank you, Jose, for going above and beyond in your volunteer efforts, helping us promote the Golden Ticket raffle. You were a hit!
Speaking of the Golden Ticket raffle—wow! What a fun addition to ANC; thank you everyone who participated. More than $26,000 was raised for SNF at this year’s conference thanks to your generous donations and Golden Ticket purchases. Congratulations to the winners of our two drawings, Sara Gasiorowski and Rebecca Wicks & Barbara Foti.
Thank you to Sara Gasiorowski, who graciously declined the $10,000 prize; those winnings will remain with the Foundation to provide scholarships for SNA members.
We’re also grateful for our friends at Horizon Software for this year’s #HorizonSupportsSNF campaign. Horizon donated $1 for every card a member delivered from our booth to theirs, in addition to fundraising at a number of state conferences—thank you, Horizon!
