ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. - Aug. 17, 2022 - PRLog -- Investing in Kids (INK!) has been selected by the 1905 Family of Restaurants to benefit from the 25th Annual Community Harvest. During the month of September, the company will donate five percent of all diners' checks to charities selected by the guests while dining at any of the company's restaurant locations across Florida.

Local Columbia Restaurant patrons can support INK! through the month-long fundraiser themed, Eat Well. Do Good., by voting for INK! as the non-profit of the diner's choice on the ballot provided during lunch and dinner. When INK! is selected, the hospitality company will donate five percent of diners' checks to INK!

The program has provided more than $3 million to non-profit organizations throughout Florida. Community Harvest involves each of the Columbia locations, including the local Columbia Restaurant at 98 St. George Street in historic, downtown St. Augustine.

"We are honored to have been chosen as one of the organizations to benefit from the Community Harvest program locally," said Donna Lueders, INK! Executive Director. "INK! will receive food and beverage gift certificates which we will share with St. Johns County School District teachers and staff and our dedicated supporters and volunteers."

"We started this program as a way to help many of the worthy non-profit groups that are so important to our communities," said 4th generation family member and president Richard Gonzmart. "I can't believe how much it has grown in 25 years. We're excited this year to extend the ballots and gift certificates to all our restaurant concepts, which should provide a real increase in our donations to the charities."

Gonzmart said the process is simple: Dine at one of the 1905 Family Of Restaurants during the month of September. Choose a charity from a ballot that is provided with your check. The restaurant calculates five percent and provides the charity with gift certificates that can be used at any of the restaurants. There is no additional cost to the guest.

The St. Johns County Education Foundation which operates as Investing in Kids (INK!) provides innovative resources to support academic success for all St. Johns County public schools to benefit more than 50,000 students and approximately 3,000 teachers. The office is located at 1 Christopher St. in St. Augustine. For more information, contact Donna Lueders at 904-547-7120 or email Visit the website at
