Imagineering is proud to sponsor local female entrepreneurs through the Red Letter Grant awards each year. We believe in the opportunity that the Red Letter Grant provides to local communities through curating small business workshops, cultivating mentor + peer networks, and providing start-up capital to female-owned businesses.
On Friday, Nov. 12, Imagineering was honored to attend the 2021 Fall Red Letter Grant Awards to support and empower this group of female entrepreneurs. Imagineering Marketing Manager, Shelley Scott, was delighted to accept an award on behalf of Mi Sullivan, owner of MiMì Cafe in Eau Claire. Although Mi was unable to attend the awards ceremony, we were happy to receive and pass along the following message from MiMì Cafe:
“MiMì Cafe is an up-and-coming mobile food establishment that will serve authentic Vietnamese street food using as much fresh and locally sourced ingredients as is available. They hope to add to the richness of Eau Claire’s food culture starting next spring and hope to have you all get a taste of their food. They want to thank Red Letter Grant for this generous award.”
