Cooters Restaurant Joins Share Our Strength's Great American Dine Out September 20-25 in Clearwater Beach
CLEARWATER BEACH - Cooters Restaurant & Bar is pleased to announce their participation in Share Our Strength's Great American Dine Out, a week-long national restaurant event in cities across the United States. From September 20 to 26, 2009, thousands of restaurants, including Cooters will join together to raise funds to help end childhood hunger in America.
The first Great American Dine Out in 2008 raised more than a million dollars. Four thousand restaurants participated, from independent and family-owned establishments to large chains and restaurant groups.
This year, restaurants have the flexibility to participate in a variety of new ways: some will donate portion of sales for the week; others will promote a special menu item, a prix fix menu or will sell Share Our Strength promotional items to raise funds and encourage repeat business. Cooters is participating by donating 5% of all food revenues for the week. In addition, Cooters will also accept donations from anyone who wants to help support the cause.
"It is heartbreaking to hear of all the children in the United States who are going hungry every day," said Carol Mears, owner of Cooters Restaurant & Bar. "Childhood hunger is a real problem in our country, and we're proud to participate in this event to help benefit the hungry children and also to help raise awareness of this issue."
