On Tuesday, Sept. 25, area residents can support the United Way while enjoying a meal out at local participating restaurants. Eleven local restaurants have agreed to donate a portion of their sales that day to the Erath County United Way.

"Dine Out United" is a major event of the 2013 United Way campaign, which runs Sept. 1 - Oct. 31. This year’s campaign goal is $275,000.

“We hope that everyone will dine out Tuesday to support these restaurants and the efforts of the Erath County United Way,” said Janis Petronis, co-chair of the 2013 Erath County United Way Campaign. “We are so fortunate to have businesses like these that value our community and donate so generously of their time and money to make our corner of the world a better place to live for all of us.”

The eleven participating restaurants are 1015 Grill, Beans & Franks, Bull Nettle Sports Grill & Bar, CiCi’s Pizza, Cotton Patch Café, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, Mascorro’s Mexican Restaurant, Mi Familia Mexican Restaurant, Peacock’s Restaurants, Quizno’s and Taco Casa.
