Heartwood Center Initiates Kickstarter Campaign to Open Curt's Café South


Heartwood Center for Body Mind Spirit, 1818 Dempster St., is collaborating with non-profit Curt’s Café to bring the latter’s inspirational concept – and café – into the former Perla Café space across the street at 1813 Dempster through a campaign on Kickstarter.com, the website used by individuals and non-profit groups all over the nation to raise funds for projects of all kinds.

Curt’s Café, 2922 Central St., is well-known for its work with at-risk boys and young men, providing them training in food service and life skills. A Curt’s Café South on Dempster Street, with the same philosophy of “dining with a purpose,” would focus on at-risk teenage girls, especially at-risk teen mothers, training them in life skills and food-service skills to enable them with skills for success and helping them take the next steps in their educations.

Of the $150,000 Heartwood is trying to amass to open Curt’s Café South, $50,000 is needed immediately to buy the Perla Café space – the amount listed on Kickstarter.com by project leaders Nancy Floy, president and owner of Heartwood Center, and Kristen Hemingway, principal of Hemingway Strategies, a boutique consulting and leadership coaching firm. To be successful, and to collect any of the funding proffered by the public, the Curt’s South project must meet or exceed $50,000 in pledges on Kickstarter.com by Aug. 17 at 11:02 a.m.
All donations are tax deductible and can be made on the Kickstarter page http://kck.st/1n569I3. Questions may be directed to Nancy Floy at nancyfloy@heartwoodcenter.com.
