The Tomato Head’s super-generous and fun Loving Spoonful fundraiser will benefit University of Tennessee’s Clarence Brown Theatre this month. Activities will take place at the Market Square and 7240 Kingston Pike locations, and highlights include:
Throughout July: (Breaking Bread Fundraiser) A portion of the proceeds from the sale of any Flour Head Bakery bread from either Tomato Head location goes to the CBT
Tuesday, July 22: (Pint Night Fundraiser featuring Yazoo Brewing Company) The CBT will receive a portion of the proceeds from any brewery
Tuesday, July 29: (Sandwich Day Fundraiser) A portion of the proceeds from every special Loving Spoonful sandwich sold goes to the theatre.
During the fundraisers, The Tomato Head patrons can register at either location to win a drawing for two (2) CBT 40th Anniversary Season Preview subscriptions, a swag bag with CBT and The Tomato Head merchandise, and a Nashville brewery tour for two complete with an overnight stay in a hotel. The total value of the price is $1,000.
Opened in 1990, The Tomato Head serves delicious sandwiches, pizzas, and burritos for carnivores, vegetarians and vegans, and is committed to teaming up with East Tennessee non-profits to enrich the lives of the less fortunate in the area.
