Ed Kowalski, owner of Lola’s Cafe and Crave Restaurant on Washington Street in Poughkeepsie explained that he does a fund raiser for Miles of Hope every October, Breast Cancer Awareness month: “I have many friends, colleagues and customers who are affected by this disease,” he explained. “It is the least I can do for a great organization that helps people right here in the Hudson Valley.”

“I love this restaurant and I love Miles of Hope, so getting them together was a no-brainer,” Rachel said.
Pari Forood, Executive Director of Miles of Hope expressed gratitude to both Ed and Rachel: “Ed has been a great supporter of ours for years, and Rachel is part of our Miles of Hope family — we are humbled by their support.”
“We know people who were helped by Miles of Hope and wanted to give back to the foundation that is right here in the Hudson Valley,” explained co-owner Linda Gregory. “Everyone in our shop was committed and excited to raise money for Miles of Hope and they all pitched in!”
Pari Forood, Executive Director of Miles of Hope, added: “So many businesses in our eight county area have taken it upon themselves to raise money for us. They have done it in very creative ways with promotions, athletic contests, and sales, and we are very grateful for all of them.”
