School is out, and Father’s Day is around the corner: These are just two of the many reasons to celebrate with a Dine and Donate meal!
On Monday, June 13, several local restaurants will donate a portion of their sales to support Aid to Distressed Families of Appalachian Counties, or ADFAC, as part of Dine and Donate. Dine and Donate is a year-long event, with different restaurants participating on the second Monday of each month.
“Whether celebrating the fathers in our lives or simply beating the heat, dining out in at least one of Monday’s Dine and Donate restaurants is a fantastic way to enjoy the season,” said Cande Seay, who chairs the Dine and Donate committee.
Monday’s participating restaurants are:
- Buddy’s bar-b-q in Oak Ridge and Buddy’s ORNL Café,
- El Cantarito in Oak Ridge,
- Gondolier in Clinton,
- Hoskins in Clinton,
- Razzleberry’s in Oak Ridge,
- Salsarita’s in Oak Ridge, and
- Secret City BBQ & Pies.
