Thank You For Dining Out For A Good CauseApril 2nd, 2012 at 11:18 pm by Nicole Livas under News, Personalities, Uncategorized
We have a big problem in Hampton Roads… child abuse! According to Betty Fitte with Prevent Child Abuse Hampton Roads, there were 72 deaths from child abuse in our area just last year. That’s why the organization holds this annual fundraiser at various restaurants.
My co-workers and friends Ali Lucia and David Culver joined me at 456 Fish in downtown Norfolk.
Our colleague, Anne McNamara helped out at Baker’s Crust in Ghent. We sold raffle tickets, tee shirts, bags, aprons, mugs and more at the event. We raised $30,000 at all of the restaurants combined.
Some of us even helped out the wait staff. This is the 11th year I’ve volunteered for the event.
The money raised goes to research and education. Remember, it shouldn’t hurt to be a child!
