Catherine Shireman, a Striving For More Board Member presented the award to Ira Freedman.
“We are so appreciative of local business’ support in our mission to ensure children with cancer receive the quality emotional, physical and spiritual support they need. Travinia Italian Kitchen has been an ongoing partner, and many children’s lives were touched because of the generosity of this company” noted Shireman.
Travinia Italian Kitchen has been serving customers in 9 locations throughout South Carolina, Virginia and North Carolina since 2002. Serving handcrafted selections for both lunch and dinner, each Travinia Italian Kitchen and Chef is compelled by passion for the flavors and freshness of regional ingredients. Here, guests look forward to a creative and varied menu of contemporary Modern American Italian choices, a Gluten-Free menu, an impressive collection of carefully-chosen wines, and an atmosphere of comfort style….and Travinia’s unmistakable desire to please all customers.
