CHARITIES BENEFITING FROM CHRISTMAS COOKIE TOUR
Over the last eleven years, the Cookie Tour of Inns has donated over $112,000 to local charities, fulfilling its mission, which is to provide “An Ohio Amish Country Lodging Council showcasing event which exists to benefit local charities”.
Each year, charity selections are based on a sincere desire to make an impact on the life of the local community. The Amish Country Lodging Council has chosen LifeCare Hospice for the last several years due to the wonderful care that they provide for patients and families during what can be very trying times. Likewise, the Council has chosen to create a $25,000 scholarship endowment with the Holmes County Education Foundation for the purpose of assisting eligible Holmes County residents in their pursuit of secondary education to prepare for an occupation in the hospitality industry. The endowment has been carefully planned to ensure that students who are awarded the scholarship will continue to receive it for the duration of their pursuit of their bachelor’s degree. Please contact the Holmes County Education Foundation for more information.
