    I’d like to do a Food Truck fundraiser event at my school in Dublin Ohio. We are raising
    money for a ceramic mural and the artist fees. We will have a flower pick up (fundraiser per the athletic teams) on the same day. Perhaps, the truck owners would be willing to donate $0.50-1.00 per order taken. May, 3rd 4-7 or 8 p.m. We may even have our school bands play. Please contact me with any information pertinent to planning such an event. Thank you!
