Dine and Donate, a fundraiser for ADFAC, begins its second year of food and fellowship on Monday, October 13.
On Dine and Donate Mondays (the second Monday of each month), seven to eight local restaurants donate a significant portion of their daily sales to ADFAC (Aid to Distressed Families of Appalachian Counties).
“Dine and Donate is a great way for local residents to try new restaurants or visit their favorites,” said ADFAC Board Member Cande Seay, who also chairs the Dine and Donate committee. “Last year, hundreds of local families and over a dozen restaurants came together to raise thousands of dollars to support ADFAC’s mission.”
Restaurants participating on Monday, October 13, are Hoskins and Riverview Grill in Clinton, and Mediterranean Delight, The Other One, Papa Murphy’s, Razzleberry’s, and Salsarita’s in Oak Ridge.
Restaurants to be featured in future Dine and Donate Mondays include Buddy’s Bar-B-Q and Buddy’s ORNL Café, Burchfield’s, Dean’s Restaurant and Bakery, El Cantarito, Gallo Loco, Gondolier (Clinton), Nature’s Marketplace, Outback Steakhouse, Pizza Inn, Popeye’s, Soup Kitchen, and Subway.
Five restaurants—Hoskins, Mediterranean Delight, Papa Murphy’s, Razzleberry’s, and Salsarita’s—will participate on each Dine and Donate Monday in 2014-15. For a printable calendar of participating restaurants, visit www.adfac.org.
Several business and media sponsors have also stepped up to support the second year of Dine and Donate, including Oak Ridge Today, Leidos, UT-Battelle, The Erb Agency, Enrichment Federal Credit Union, J&M’s Butcher Shop, and Mortgage Investors Group.
“ADFAC is so grateful to each and every restaurant and sponsor that has agreed to participate in this important fundraiser,” Seay said. “The money raised through Dine and Donate will be well-utilized by ADFAC to help provide essential services to our less fortunate neighbors throughout Anderson County.”
ADFAC is an independent nonprofit agency that was established in 1987 and exists to serve the basic needs of primarily low-income residents in Anderson and surrounding Appalachian counties.
ADFAC’s goal is to help families become stable and self-sufficient through a variety of direct assistance services provided by its Social Services and Affordable Housing programs. ADFAC answers more than 6,000 requests for assistance each year.
