Eat Out for a Good Cause Tonight - Triangle RSVVP

Today, Tuesday November 11 is Dine Out and Make a Difference Day in the Triangle!

What is RSVVP? Here's some info from their website:

On Tuesday, November 11, 2008, Triangle residents will have the opportunity to help feed the hungry in their communities when they patronize any local restaurant participating in the 20th annual RSVVP (Restaurants Sharing V/5 + V/5 Percent) Day.

This year, hundreds of restaurants throughout Chapel Hill/Carrboro, Durham and Raleigh are being encouraged to participate in this RSVVP event to aid shelters and community kitchens throughout the Triangle area. Funds are raised through the donations of participating restaurants that pledge 10 percent of their gross receipts on RSVVP Day for breakfast, lunch, dinner or take-out meals.

SunTrust (who has sponsored this event for all of its 20 years) plays a special role in this hunger relief partnership alongside our media sponsors. A generous grant from SunTrust helps to underwrite all administrative costs, including the cost of printing and mailing. In addition, it pays for the posters and table tents that identify the participating restaurants and for the thousands of flyers listing those restaurants, which are distributed to Triangle churches, civic groups, schools, and businesses to publicize RSVVP.

The generosity of this sponsorship allows all money raised by the RSVVP fundraiser to go directly to the Triangle agencies that provide the hunger relief programs.
