Nordblom Donates Proceeds of 'Taste of 3rd Ave' to Burlington Education Foundation

By: BNEWS

 

The Nordblom Company and its 3rd Ave project have made a donation to the Burlington Education Foundation with funds raised by an annual event.

 

On Saturday, June 10, 3rd Ave hosted the Third Annual Taste of 3rd Ave, where for a small donation participants got an “around-the-world” experience of 3rd Ave including food samplings, discounts and giveaways from each retailer.  The Taste of 3rd Ave attracted over 530 guests bringing the donation total to $5,267.60.

 

The proceeds were then donated to the Burlington Education Foundation (BEF), the organization that provides educators with grants for projects that help them teach and inspire students in town.

 

“We are delighted to make this donation of over $5,200 to the Burlington Education Foundation,” stated Peter Nordblom, President of Nordblom Company.  “We have been involved with this organization on numerous occasions and fully support all they do for the Burlington Community.”

 

Recipients of the donation were grateful for the financial help.

 

“The Burlington Education Foundation would not be as successful if not for our community business partners like Nordblom and the businesses on 3rd Ave,” said Paula Boermeester, President of the BEF. “We are so thankful for this donation. We are thrilled to be involved in our thriving community and helping to make a difference in Burlington Public Schools.”
