Fredericksburg, VA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/11/2013 --The compassion of a ten year old girl and her 5th grade class at Holy Cross Academy is making a difference in the Fredericksburg community. The desire to help the needy has driven a campaign to raise funds for the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank.
Enlisting the talents of her father, Neil Darling (who is an award-winning Gumbo Grand Master Chef and Entrepreneur) has initiated the "GUMBO FOR GOOD" fundraising campaign. "GUMBO FOR GOOD" offers the award-winning seafood and sausage gumbo for sale with 100% of the tax-deductible donations being directed to the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank.
Mr. Darling, as founder and CEO of EtherSpeak (a Fredericksburg-based Business Communications Provider), has solicited his company to sponsor this campaign. He states, "I am proud to assist my daughter and her classmates at Holy Cross Academy in this honorable effort. It is a great opportunity for these kids to make a difference and learn of the wealth to be gained by giving to those in need."
