SUGAR CITY-IDAHO (AP), June 25, 2014— In order to celebrate the sale of one million cheesy olives, the Cheesy Olive Company will be holding a fundraiser to raise one million dollars for charity.
The funds raised will be given to the Olive Foundation which gives undersized olives a chance to have a good life on the southeast Idaho, Wild Olive Preserve.
“Ever since I heard of putting cheese in olives, I’ve dreamed of the day when Idaho olives and Idaho cheese rule the market,” said Cheesy Olives, LLC president, Matt Eichner, “we couldn’t have done it without all of our customers. We hope that our customers will think about all those olives that aren’t big enough to bottle, and will contribute the Wild Olive Preserve.”
Cheesy Olives™ has been in business for 5 years, their products are low in fat, and gluten free, coming in two sizes, grand and jumbo.
The charity will take donations for the next six months, and the person or organization that contributes the most will win a three night Carnival Cruise™ in the Gulf of Mexico.
“We can’t wait to be able to give more wild olives a chance for a happy life at the Wild Olive Preserve,” said Wild Olive Preserve director, Amy Olive, “Thanks to Cheesy Olives and your donations, they will have a chance.”
