WEDGE’s 25th annual Thanksgiving Breakfast at McDonald’s in Chesterland was the most successful in the history of the event, raising $2,600 to help fund educational programs for students in the West Geauga school system.

“Special thanks to Steve Goden and Patrice Mishaga, co-chairs for this year’s event, all our volunteers and students who took time on Thanksgiving morning to work the breakfast, our business sponsors, and John Powers, McDonald’s Chesterland owner/operator, and his staff for opening their store on a holiday and giving their time and support,” said Jill Snyder, WEDGE President. “Everyone involved should be proud that their efforts helped to raise funds that will go toward supporting innovative and enriching learning experiences for West Geauga students.”
