Last week I emailed you about our first edMatch fundraising event with Patxi’s Restaurants. I want to thank you for making it a HUGE success! Despite the fact that it was only Wednesday, Patxi’s staffed up as if it was a Saturday – and even that wasn’t enough to satisfy the demand from the edMatch crowds. Lines were out the door, gift cards sold out, take-out orders were backed up, even the dishes could not get washed and set fast enough. It just goes to show how passionately we support our City’s public schools.
With all three restaurants packed from lunch through dinner, Patxi’s sales were 30% higher than average! It was such a success, we are thrilled to announce monthly edMatch days at Patxis throughout 2011, with proceeds benefiting our San Francisco public schools.
Here’s what Bill Freeman, CEO of Patxi’s had to say about our event:
“I have to say edMatch is a very impressive organization. You guys really got the troops out and it was a huge success…We are thrilled with the results! The people who visited our locations last night experienced great food, service, value and felt that their meal meant something, not to mention it is great for employee moral. I wish everything in life created a circle like this!”
Best of all, more businesses have approached us about similar events!

All best,Todd David
