Dining Out Fundraiser Next Week

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the dining out events prior to the holidays. Your participation in these events has helped us continue to contribute additional income to our Mary Woodward school during a time in which all other fundraising opportunities are limited given the current circumstance. These funds help us provide additional opportunities for our children and families within our Mary Woodward community!

Our next dining out fundraiser community partner is Casa Lola Kitchen de Mexico located at 16325 SW Barrows Rd. Beaverton, OR 97007 (in the plaza at the roundabout). Their Tinga Tacos dish and chips and salsa (pico de gallo) are amazing! They also offer vegetarian options. This event will be held over 3 days next week. So why not start your week off easy and pick up dinner from Casa Lola?! Or if you miss one day, there are still 2 more days to take a break from the kitchen!

Monday 2/1/21, Tuesday 2/2/21, and Wednesday 2/3/21 11 am - 9:30 pm. Order options available:

  • Call ahead to pick up at the drive-thru window (503) 567-8131
  • Patio seating available

30% of all sales will come back to the school and fund additional enrichment opportunities for our children at Mary Woodward.
