Graze turns week toward helping Ronald McDonald House


Dining at Graze will support a good cause next week.

A portion of sales at the downtown shop and the Ninth Avenue drive through will be dedicated to support the Ronald McDonald House in Spokane, owners have announced.

Starting Monday, 10 percent of all sales at Graze’s locations, ‘A Place to Eat’ at 5 S. Colville St. and ‘A Drive Thru’ at 213 S. Ninth Ave., will be given to the facility to help support families in need. The fundraiser runs through Jan. 19.

This is the fifth year John and Becca Lastoskie have raised funds through their business. They are not seeking donations, but just for people to dine for the cause.

The fundraiser is a demonstration of gratitude by the Lastoskies.

The Ronald McDonald House became a second home to the couple after their prematurely born daughter, Frances, was admitted in the neonatal intensive care unit at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children’s Hospital. They spent numerous weekends at the Ronald McDonald House, a temporary lodging and support unit for families accessing medical services. The house offers a central family kitchen, private family bedrooms and room for children to play. Families that stay there get support from one another as well as Ronald McDonald House staff and volunteers. Their daughter is now a healthy elementary-schooler.
