BG Education Foundation Receives $1,600 in Donations from Local Businesses
November 25, 2014
The Battle Ground Education Foundation received $1,600 in donations this week from the Mill Creek Pub restaurant in Battle Ground and Waste Connections. Mill Creek Pub owner Russell Brent donated $800 to the Battle Ground Education Foundation this week during its annual pulling of the coins event. Brent removes the coins once each year on the restaurant's anniversary from its waterwheel fountain and donates the money plus a personal donation to a local charity. Waste Connection matched the donation to support local schools. Battle Ground Education Foundation is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting teachers and students in Battle Ground Public Schools for lifelong success. Also part of the event, local resident Jeanine Brigham had the closest guess ($777) to the total amount of the coinage removed ($780.51) and won a $100 gift card to Mill Creek Pub.
