Greek restaurant holds fundraiser for polar bear plunge team
KIRKSVILLE, Mo. —
Greek Corner Gyros brought a little bit of Greece to the Kirksville community.
They held their first fundraising event on Sunday by selling roasted pork, lamb, and authentic Greek side dishes.
Proceeds are going to their polar bear plunge team, the Greek Corner Gyros.
Member of the family owned business, Takila Baris says they were looking to expand.
Having a fundraiser helped bring something new to the Kirksville community.
"Well people always asked us why don't we cook authentic Greek food once in a while. So we decided we'll do this and instead of us making a profit, we will give it towards the team."
The family says they hope to make this an annual event.
