Winn-Dixie No. 611 held a Math Night event for its school partner, Lutz Elementary. ​

Winn-Dixie store Nos. 2433 in Hyde Park and 611 in Lutz hosted students from local elementary schools and their parents for an evening of fun and learning at the stores’ respective Math Night events.

The Lutz Winn-Dixie’s Math Night event had more than 80 students and parents in attendance; it was the best turn out for Math Night since the store started holding them three years ago. Winn-Dixie store No. 611 partners with Lutz Elementary regularly for PTA and school events.

“We think it’s important to tell our kids’ parents how much our local Winn-Dixie is supporting our school, and through events like Math Night, the parents can see that first hand,” said Tamara Crim, Lutz Elementary PTA vice president. “Winn-Dixie is very kind and generous to our school and we value our partnership greatly.”

“Everyone had a fabulous time at the Winn-Dixie Math Night event,” said Jake Van Hise, Gorrie Math Curriculum Committee lead. “Our parents loved working on math with their kids and being able to shop for their groceries at the same time.”

The Hyde Park Winn-Dixie received much praise from Math Night attendees about how helpful the employees were and how nice the store looked. A Tampa area record 220 students attended the event.

“It’s important for us to connect with our community and school partners through events like Math Night,”said Richard Rescigno, Winn-Dixie store No. 2433 director. “Not only does it show our store is invested in the Hyde Park community, but it also gives us a chance to introduce ourselves to potential new customers.”
