Fill the Fund: April 27


The fourth annual Fill the Fund fundraiser will take place on Wednesday, April 27 in Ankeny. Fill the Fund is an event organized by the Wiedenman Family Foundation to benefit the Ankeny Community School District. The city-wide eat out event allows Ankeny community members to eat out for a cause! On this day, participating restaurants donate a portion of their proceeds back to the Wiedenman Family Foundation, who is putting the monies raised toward honoring our school district’s teachers!

Participating restaurants include:

Cabaret Sports Bar and Grill

Chick-Fil-A Ankeny

Coldstone Creamery


Hy-Vee North


Little Caesars

Lola’s Fine Kitchen

Lotta Pop

Main Street Cafe and Bakery

Magee’s Irish Pub

Pizza Ranch

Rise & Grind

Sorriso Grille

Sports Page


Tropical Smoothie

Whiskey River

Wig & Pen

Yankee Clipper


A portion of the proceeds from food and beverage sales during the Fill the Fund event will be donated to the Ankeny Community School District. In the past, the funds have been used to replenish negative school lunch balances throughout the district. School lunches have been free since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic; therefore, funds raised from Fill the Fund will be used to recognize and honor the Ankeny School District’s teachers.

The Wiedenman Family Foundation, a 501c3 tax exempt, non-profit organization was formed to undertake projects that will enhance Ankeny and the surrounding communities.
