Title
Recognition of Mr. Ray Braumuller and Carrabba's Italian Grill

Discussion

Mr. Ray Braumuller, proprietor of Carrabba's Italian Grill, 7620 North Wickham Road, Melbourne, continues to be an exemplary business partner for Brevard Public Schools. His generosity has particularly supported schools in the Viera area. For example, he has opened early to support school-related functions and offered to host field trips for special needs students. Additionally, Mr. Braumuller opened his restaurant June 14, 2008 to Brevard Public Schools for a special recognition event honoring those who dedicated their time to stage this spring's production of "1776" experienced by 11th grade students across the district. 

For the past several years, Mr. Braumuller has also donated the food that allowed the district's "Take Stock in Children" program to recognize its mentors.The restaurant's mobile kitchen and its volunteers often provide more than 500 meals at such events. 



Recommendation

Recognize and express sincere appreciation to Mr. Ray Braumuller and Carrabba's Italian Grill, Melbourne, for on-going and outstanding support of Brevard Public Schools and its students.
