“The Boys & Girls Clubs is excited to partner with Sweet Tomatoes for their grand opening in Lady Lake. With three locations in surrounding areas, our goal is to open a new Boys & Girls Clubs location in Lady Lake for the children in the area.” said Joni Smith, Chief Professional Officer for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lake and Sumter Counties. “There is a need and demand for a program like ours in the area, and we hope to fulfill that in the near future”
Sweet Tomatoes seeks to be a vital and contributing part of each community in which it operates. To reach this goal, restaurants offer a “Fun-Raiser” program through which charities, churches, schools, athletic teams, scout troops and other non-profit organizations may raise funds by hosting in-store events. The restaurants assist in marketing the non-profit’s event by creating master flyers for distribution and promotion.
Sweet Tomatoes in Lady Lake will be open daily from 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. on weekdays, 11:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. on Saturday and 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. on Sundays. For more information visit www.sweetomatoes.com. For more information on the Boys & Girls Clubs visit www.bgclsc.org.
