The Tasty Dog Challenge, which raised approx. $3400 for the PTOs of the Oak Park elementary schools last spring, is starting again Saturday March 5. Tasty Dog, 708 Lake Street, will be supporting area schools again by donating proceeds from meal sales to District 97 elementary school PTOs. This year’s expanded event offers even more ways to support District 97 schools, including prize drawings and an anti-bullying program to be presented to a winning school.
Participation is easy - school supporters visit Tasty Dog any time during a specially designated day and mention their school when placing an order. Tasty Dog will donate 15 percent of all participants’ sales to that school’s PTO.
