Fourteen restaurants are participating in the “Dine Out Wednesdays for South Whidbey Schools” program next month.
When patrons dine or order take-out at the participating restaurants during October, a portion of the day’s receipts are donated to the South Whidbey Schools Foundation for an “innovative classroom project” in the South Whidbey School District. Past monies have led to projects ranging from the revival of performing arts at the high school to purchasing a sensory water table.
Restaurants from Clinton, Langley, Bayview and Freeland are participating. They include: Patron Mexican Restaurant, Island Nosh, Saltwater Cafe, Prima Bistro, Spyhop Public House, Sprinklz, Useless Bay Coffee Company, Neil’s Clover Patch Cafe, El Corral Mexican Restaurant, Freeland Cafe, Gordon’s on Blueberry Hill, Charmers Bistro, Rocket Taco and Whidbey Doughnuts.
A “Special Friday Night Kick-Off” event at Prima Bistro in Langley was held on Sept. 29 to mark the start of this year’s fundraising efforts.
