As a new Salemite I am making the rounds searching for new favorite restaurants and have been feeling a little guilty about it. New Year's resolutions are just around the corner and eating in always tops my list. Whether you are a neophyte (HUSKY FAN) like me or your family has been in Salem for generations, I have a way to help clear this guilt away if only for a day! Consider dining out for breakfast lunch and dinner tomorrow (getting take-out for dinner should you be watching the Civil War) to support Youth Impact's "Dine Out For Youth!" fundraiser. Dine at one of the participating restaurants listed below this Thursday and 10-15% of your bill will be donated to support mentorship programs provided by Youth Impact, a local non-profit.
For Breakfast Busick Court Restaurant
For Lunch Willamette Noodle Company
For Dinner Adam's Rib Smokehouse (Take-Out for Ducks and Beavers OR Dine-In for Huskies)
Brilliant! This knocks out the guilt and helps another inevitable resolution: give back to my community and/or help someone in need! Educators and advocates of mentorship believe the worst thing that can happen in our community is for our youth to move through adolescence without realizing their full potential. Youth Impact has worked in communities throughout Marion and Polk counties to connect volunteer mentors with youth ages 4-18 who are in need of the support and guidance of a caring friend since 2004.
This is a great cause and fab excuse to give your dishwasher a rest for the night. Hope to see you out at one of the following restaurants this Thursday!
Adam's Rib Smokehouse - 1210 State St
Best Little Roadhouse - 1145 Commercial St SE
Busick Court Restaurant - 250 Court St
Garlic Jim's Famous Gourmet Pizza - 4555 Liberty Rd S
McDonald's - 6-9pm at all 14 Salem-Keizer Locations!
Willamette Noodle Company - 380 High St
Willamette Burger Company - 1405 Broadway
