'Spoke & Food' fundraiser next week

June 22nd, 2011 by master

The second annual Spoke & Food fundraising event is next Tuesday, June 28th. Heather Slettebak who founded the event with her husband sent us this information:

Billed as “an evening of dining and bikes”, the event will take place in 13+ different Seattle area neighborhoods. The event asks people to bicycle to (and from) one of the “host” restaurants on the night of the event. This community event was launched last year as a way to influence the culture of Seattle, to show how easy and fun bicycling to and from dinner is and to raise money for a well-deserving Seattle area non-profit. A new non-profit beneficiary is selected each year. This year’s event will benefit the Children’s Garden Education program at Seattle Tilth where as last year’s event benefited the Lettuce Link program at Solid Ground.
The funds raised for the non-profit are donated directly to the non-profit by each of the “host” restaurants who have agreed to give 20% of all the diner bills collected between 5:00pm and 10:00pm on Tuesday, June 28th. In return of their gracious support, the Spoke & Food event will have only one host restaurant in each of the neighborhoods that are involved.

Julia’s (4401 Wallingford Ave N) is the Wallingford restaurant participating. Here is the list of others:
Ballard – Snoose Junction Pizzeria
Capitol Hill – The Lookout
Madrona – The Madrona Alehouse
Maple Leaf – Snappy Dragon
Phinney Ridge – Stumbling Goat Bistro
Phinney Ridge – The Barking Dog Alehouse
Queen Anne – Via Tribunali
Ravenna – Casa D’Italia
Roosevelt – The Scarlet Tree
University District – Chaco Canyon Organic Café
White Center – Proletariat Pizza

Dine Out For Life this Thursday

April 26th, 2010 by master

This Thursday, April 29, is the 17th annual Dining Out For Life event. Throughout the Puget Sound, 150 restaurants will donate 30% of each diner’s bill to support Lifelong AIDS Alliance.

Participating Wallingford restaurants are Blue Star Café, Djan’s Dining, Kabul, Tutta Bella, and Rusty Pelican Cafe.

Lifelong AIDS Alliance said in a press release:

Dining Out For Life is the perfect reason to plan a dinner party with friends and family, dine out for lunch with colleagues, indulge in dessert and wine, or simply grab a coffee on your way to work.  Lifelong spokesman Trevor DeWitt explains, “Dining Out For Life is a great way to support the community and have fun, doing something we do everyday. Everyone dines out, so why not dine out and have your meal make a positive difference?”
