31 Restaurants to donate portion of proceeds of September 21 revenueClear Creek Education Foundation (CCEF) announced it will host its second annual “Dine Out to Donate” event on Monday, Sept. 21 and is excited to have 31 local restaurants participating. Participating restaurants will donate a portion of their Sept. 21 revenue to CCEF to benefit the students and teachers of Clear Creek Independent School District.
“This year, the response to the Clear Creek Education Foundation’s Dine Out to Donate has been tremendous,” said Kaci Hanson, CCEF Executive Director. “The community continues to demonstrate its strong support of the Clear Creek Independent School District, and we thank all of the participating restaurants for their commitment.”
CCEF encourages citizens to dine out for a good cause on Monday, Sept. 21. The process is simple – patrons enjoy a meal at a participating restaurant, and restaurant proprietors donate a portion of the proceeds to CCEF to support its many programs, including Teacher Innovative Grants, National Board Teacher Certification, Clear Horizons Early College High School and Technology Education Labs.
CCEF board member and South Shore Grille owner Mickey Wooten developed the concept for “Dine Out to Donate” last year and has led the effort for CCEF again this year. “As restaurant owners, this is an opportunity for us to give back to the community,” said Wooten. “Clear Creek Independent School District is very important to the area. Demonstrating our support of the district by donating a portion of proceeds on one day during dinner (only) or lunch and dinner is a great way to support educational excellence.”
The elementary and secondary school with the highest percentage of participation based on student population will win $1,000! For more information, go to clearcreekeducationfoundation.org/ dine-out-to-donate or facebook.com/ ccisdef.
