Starting on Monday, 12 local restaurants will participate in ADFAC’s “A Year of Dine & Donate.”
On Dine & Donate Mondays (the second Monday of each month), the restaurants listed below will donate a significant portion of their daily sales to ADFAC.
- Riverview Grill
In Oak Ridge:
- Gallo Loco
- Mediterranean Delight
- Soup Kitchen
Both Subways in Clinton will participate and so will the Subway at 1968 Oak Ridge Turnpike in Oak Ridge, and the Subways in Oliver Springs and Rocky Top.
“We are thrilled these restaurants stepped up to participate throughout the whole year,” said Dine & Donate Chair Cande Seay. “Each month, all of our restaurants are truly showing their commitment to the community.”
Several business and media sponsors have also stepped up to support Dine & Donate in 2017, including Oak Ridge Today, Leidos, UT-Battelle, ORNL Federal Credit Union, J & M’s Butcher Shop, and Randy Mcfarland—State Farm Agent.
“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 & Donate is well utilized by ADFAC to help provide essential services to our less fortunate neighbors throughout Anderson County.”
