With $1 million, you could have that Cuban / 1905 Salad combo at Columbia Restaurant in Ybor for every meal for the next 50 years.

Back in April, the Columbia Restaurant lost a member of the team when Kelly Fletcher was killed in a traffic crash on Easter Sunday. Kelly Fletcher was a beloved friend, family member, an an important part of the team at Columbia, Ulele, and Goody Burgers.

The Columbia Restaurant Group has since set up a scholarship fund in Kelly’s honor, the Chef Kelly Fletcher Endowed Scholarship at Hillsborough Community College. The scholarships helps students who want to start careers culinary and hospitality industry.

With a goal to raise $10,000, Columbia Restaurant is now selling custom made sangria pitchers to raise money for the scholarship. Each pitcher goes for $100. You can see what they look like here:
