The NRA reports that the number of participating restaurants for the fundraising event has doubled the total participation level of the first Dine for America benefit in 2001, which included 8,000 restaurants raising $20 million for the victims of Sept. 11 and their families.
Restaurants are participating at various levels from donating all or a portion of the day's sales/profits; restaurant employees are volunteering to work on Oct. 5, or donating a portion of their tips; and some restaurants are providing canisters for guests to make a donation. Restaurant patrons can also send donations directly to: American Red Cross, c/o Dine for America, , including the tracking number . For more information, visit the Dine for America web site.
