New York City restaurants are invited to stand with legendary restaurateurs Daniel Boulud, Andrew Carmellini, Jeffrey Lefcourt, Drew Nieporent, Simon Oren, Eric Ripert, and Jeff Zalaznick as they join forces to partner with the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) to launch the first annual Dine Out for Heroes, a one-day-only event on Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014. Each participating restaurant will donate $1 per cover served to the BWF to help in the organization’s efforts to tackle the serious issues of long-term rehabilitation, care, and support of our injured veterans.
It is anticipated that hundreds of New York–area restaurants will join the Dine Out for Heroes initiative. By pledging to donate $1 per cover, participating restaurants will be part of an industry-wide movement to support the injured and their families as they integrate back into society. In addition, participating restaurants will encourage diners to donate to the BWF by visiting the organization’s website — at bobwoodrufffoundation.org.
“We are looking to the restaurant industry to help support the brave men and women who raised their hands to go when our country asked. From rehabilitation and recovery to education, employment, and quality of life — these programs are essential, and as participating members, our commitment to ‘Dine. Donate. Honor. Heal.’ will be critical,” said Penny Glazier, of The Glazier Group of restaurants.
Restaurants that are already on board include Jane, Le Bernardin, Michael Jordan’s The Steak House, and The Russian Tea Room, among others. Please sign up today to support Dine Out for Heroes on November 5, 2014.
