COLTS NECK, N.J., Nov. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With 87 schools participating throughout New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, and Florida, the Let's YO! Yogurt fall fundraising campaign turned out to be a huge success.
From September 9 through October 21, Let's YO! customers nationwide enrolled in the "YO! School Rocks" campaign to help their desired school win cash prizes to go towards new computers, classroom supplies, student activities, etc. Each time they made a purchase at Let's YO!, the company matched their YO! points with the school of their choosing. The three schools that racked up the most points were recently presented with cash prizes earlier this month.
"We created the YO! School Rocks campaign as a fun, easy way for us to give back to our local communities with the help of our customers," said Eric Casaburi, CEO and founder of Let's YO!. "It was truly an awe-inspiring feeling to hear stories from our franchise owners about families and groups of students coming in to support their local schools."
Midland Elementary School in Paramus, NJ earned the most YO! points and was presented a check for $2,500 by Let's YO! Director of Operations Eric Zeises, during a school assembly on November 6. The students were also treated to free frozen yogurt by the local franchise owner, Russell Rothstein.
Franklin High School in Somerset, NJ took home second place and was presented with a $1,000 check on November 11 at the Let's YO! Somerset location. Saint Matthew's School in Edison, NJ rounded out the top ranks and was presented a $500 check on November 8 at the Let's YO! Edison location.
