You can “Dine United” when you eat at one of 13 area restaurants this week. From October 12-16, several central Oklahoma restaurants will donate 5% or more of their net proceeds to benefit United Way’s annual campaign.

Donations will be allocated to 127 programs administered by 61 Partner Agencies who serve thousands of central Oklahomans each year through the community investment process. Proceeds from the event covers the spectrum of community needs, providing a social services safety net for our most vulnerable residents.

“Dine United is a great opportunity for participating local restaurants to serve hope in addition to delicious food, and for individuals to give back to the community by simply dining out,” said Debby Hampton, CEO and president of United Way of Central Oklahoma. “With each meal served, both the business and dining guest are pledging their support for our neighbors in need.”
