Eat and Support a Charity at the Same Time
Local restaurants are once again participating in the Table for 2 ‘passport’ program sponsored by Partners with PARC, the Putnam County-based organization. For a cost of $40, the ‘fine dining passport’ provides coupons, which can be redeemed for two-for-one entrees at 15 local restaurants. Just present the Table for 2 passport, and the restaurant will take one dinner entrí©e off your bill. Each participating restaurant chooses the nights the passport may be used (mostly Monday through Thursday), and the passport is valid throughout 2011. With full use, the book’s value is estimated to be over $350.
The program, now in its fifth year, provided much-needed funds to PARC, which helps children and adults with developmental disabilities, autism, and traumatic brain injuries. This year’s restaurants include: Arturo’s, Mahopac; Aversano’s, Brewster; The Bird & Bottle, Garrison; Cathryn’s Tuscan Grill, Cold Spring; Chalet on the Hudson, Cold Spring; Dish Bistro & Wine Bar, Mahopac; Hudson House, Cold Spring; Jaipore Royal Indian Cuisine, Brewster; Riverview, Cold Spring; The Terrace Club, Mahopac; Ciao Bella Vita, Stormville; Hudson’s Ribs & Fish, Fishkill; Towne Crier Cafí©, Pawling; Sukhothai, Beacon; and The Division Street Grill, Peekskill.
“I grew up in the restaurant business and I wanted to work directly with restaurant owners to create an exciting, fine dining promotion that would also benefit the people with developmental disabilities that we serve each day,” said Rand Bridget Otten, Partners with PARC’s director of development.
The Table for 2 passport is available for purchase at the Partners with PARC’s website, http://www.partnerswithparc.org/, and at PARC Center, Route 6, Carmel and PARC’s corporate offices at 31 International Blvd., Brewster
