Chick-fil-A Fundraiser Brings in Nearly $3K for Ireland Nugent

Numerous Chick-fil-A restaurants in Pinellas and Pasco counties participated in a fundraiser on May 8 to benefit Ireland Nugent, 2, who was severely injured in a lawn mower accident.

We'd like to give a "Patch on the back" to our local Chick-fil-A restaurants, which donated $2,776.37 to the Ireland Nugent fund.

Ireland Nugent is the Palm Harbor 2-year-old whose ankles were severed in a lawn mower accident at her home last month. She was recently released from the hospital.

Numerous Chick-fil-A restaurants in Pinellas and Pasco counties participated in the fundraiser on May 8. Customers who dined at the restaurants wrote "Ireland" on the back of their receipts and a portion of the sales were donated to a fund for Ireland.

The fundraiser was the brainchild of Kelli Snow, who is the marketing director at the Palm Harbor Chick-fil-A.

Ireland and her family stopped by the Palm Harbor Chick-fil-A to eat on the evening of the fundraiser.

The Palm Harbor Chik-fil-A is located at 32800 U.S. 19.
