Dear Friends!

This is all thanks to you!!! Please read below! 

Allegro Foundation… a Champion for Children with Disabilities was recently awarded $20,000 and named a Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Awards Recipient for the Atlantic Region!

 Now in its fifth year, the True Inspiration Awards were created to honor nonprofit organizations around the country and to carry on Chick-fil-A Founder S. Truett Cathy's legacy of generosity and community service.

Each year, Chick-fil-A owners and operators around the country can select a nonprofit in their respective areas and submit them to Chick-fil-A for consideration of the TIA. If selected, the nonprofit is sent to the finals and the community selects the winner of the award by voting for the favorite nonprofit. Allegro is proud to be recognized with this prestigious national award!

Thank you to everyone who voted for Allegro to win this honor!
