EatWell DC’s restaurants will host the 4th Annual Dining Out With The Dogs on August 10, 2014 from 5:00 p.m. to close to benefit City Dogs Rescue.
Participating restaurants Commissary, Grillfish, Logan Tavern & The Pig will all donate 15% of dinner sales to the organization that works to rescue adoptable dogs in overcrowded and high-kill shelters throughout DC.
This event, named the Washington City Paper’s Reader’s Choice Award for Best Charity Event in 2015, has raised more than $17,000 in its first three years and organizers hope to surpass a 2015 goal of $8,000.
“City Dogs Rescue’s mission is one that resonates with our company and for so many of our guests,” says EatWell DC Partner Josh Hahn, who helped to launch EatWell DC’s charitable arm GiveWell in 2010. “GiveWell allows for us to have a greater impact on the charities and community organizations in which we believe, and City Dogs does incredible, important work that we want to support.”
To support City Dogs Rescue, diners are encouraged to make a reservation at eatwelldc.com (walk-ins welcome!). Happy hour will run as usual until 7:00 p.m. at each restaurant, but each bar will also have a “late night” happy hour revival from 10:00 – 11:00 p.m. In addition, kids will eat free up until 6:30 p.m. Dogs welcome to join on Commissary, Grillfish, Logan Tavern & The Pigs’ patios, and City Dogs will have adoptable pups greeting guests at each location.
