A Special Thank you to our Sponsors...
Although many readers already are well aware of the tremendous compassion various business establishments have shown to our family, as well as the tremendous support they have provided to Amanda’s scholarship fund through donations, fundraisers, and providing goods and services, some readers may not know of all the good works and generous donations that have come from particular businesses.
The Perrecones have been family friends for years and Amanda took private field hockey lessons from their daughter, Danielle, in the years when Amanda was playing field hockey (before she found her absolute passion for running). Their Subway stores have been a frequent destination of our entire family whenever we were looking for a great sandwich.
Just to name a few of the wonderful ways the Perrecones Subway stores have supported not only the Amanda Post Scholarship Fund, but also Derek Thomas’s recovery, let us tell you about their latest two donations. Shortly after Derek returned to San Diego and was still at Scripps Hospital in Encinitas, their Subway store right across the street from Scripps Encinitas on Santa Fe Ave. sent over one of their six foot sandwiches with all the “fixin’s”, and two huge “vegie” only sandwiches, along with a generous supply of cookies for the regular “Thursday night dinner” we had been having for Derek’s sisters over the months while Derek was in the hospital in LA. Once Derek was settled in Scripps, we decided to move the dinner over to the hospital courtyard so that Derek and his sisters, and all of his sisters’ girl friends could have dinner with Derek. All of the food was donated by their Subway store. Most recently, their Subway stores have provided the lunches for all the golfers in the last five Amanda Post Memorial Golf Tournaments at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club.
So, please be sure to patronize any one of the Perrecone’s Subway stores at any of their locations described above frequently, and when you’re there please be sure to tell the manager of the Subway store how much you appreciate all they have done to support Derek’s recovery and Amanda’s scholarship fund, as well as the entire Post family.

Leucadia Pizzeria, owned by Chip and Linda Conover. For those of us who frequent Leucadia Pizzeria we already know that they have incredibly delicious food at very reasonable prices and their staff and employees at all three locations are warm and caring individuals that really make an effort to make your dining experience an enjoyable one.
Many of you may not know that Amanda worked part-time for Leucadia Pizzeria at their Rancho Santa Fe/ Fairbanks Ranch location. She absolutely loved working there because Jordan, the manager, and all the employees were outstanding, enjoyable individuals to be around. She could hardly wait to go to work—quite a compliment from an employee to an employer.
Here are just some of the wonderful things Leucadia Pizzeria has done so far–they’ve had at least three separate “dining nights” where 20% of all proceeds (whether from take out, dining in or in-home delivery) for the entire day and night have been donated to Amanda’s scholarship fund—they’ve pooled tips and contributions from the employees and simply sent in a generous gift to Amanda’s scholarship fund from time to time—they’ve raised hundreds of dollars for Hilary and Sophie’s Rock N Roll Marathon run—just to name a few.
The point is that Leucadia Pizzeria is an incredible restaurant and we urge you to please frequent Leucadia Pizzeria often. Oh, and if you know the Conovers, the next time you see them, or when you go into one of their restaurants, it would be great if you could just tell the Conovers, or the manager at whichever location you are dining, that you appreciate all the donations and support that Leucadia Pizzeria has given to the Amanda Post Memorial Scholarship Fund and all of their expressions of comfort and compassion they have given the Post family.
