April 27th, local restaurants and their customers are joining together for the 15th year to support WNCAP’s programs, including helping patients afford costly medicines and providing transportation to doctor’s appointments.
“We have more than 100 restaurants taking part this year, all around Asheville to Mars Hill to Waynesville and Hendersonville and beyond.” Each of those businesses will donate a portion of their proceeds to WNCAP. You’ll also find volunteers, “WNCAP Ambassadors”, visiting tables to explain the mission of Dining Out For Life. Customers are welcome to make additional donations, “but we’re just happy to have support from patrons who come out to eat,” Broadderick says.
Last year, WNCAP raised more than $160,000 during Dining Out For Life. It allowed the organization to add more case managers in rural areas, providing housing assistance, and expand prevention and education programs.
Former TV weatherguy who never got it right, til the day I predicted mostly cloudy skies with a 100% chance of unemployment. I've survived stints as a morning radio host, stay-at-home dad, and lab assistant. All left me with with varying degrees of side-effects, which somehow combined to make me a good fit to be the editor/video producer of the828.com.
