This past Saturday, Liza and I sat down with Morgan and Christy, the editors of Nashvillest, to interview them for an upcoming post. While chatting, they mentioned a simple way to help in the flood relief efforts. Both Liza and I looked at each other and mouthed, “Let’s write about this on Monday.”
Today, May 17th, kicks off Eat Out for Nashville 2010, where some of Nashville’s most giving restaurants are going to donate 50% of their profits to aid in the flood relief. This is big, impressive, and makes us love Nashville restaurant owners even more.
Here’s why it is so important for you to continue your efforts to help those in need and eat out tonight:
Disasters provoke an initial and overwhelming response, and then, slowly but surely, life returns to normal for the majority of us. The hoards of volunteers have to return to their jobs, the news media moves on to the next big story, and things appear to settle down for the most part. Except if you are a flood victim. We truly want to continue to help you because that’s what makes Nashville a special place to live.
This is so easy. Tonight and only tonight*, the following restaurants have agreed to donate a substantial amount (50%) to the Community Foundation of Nashville Flood Relief.
It’s Monday and you don’t really want to cook anyway. I am planning to take my family to Amerigo’s and Liza is making the trek South to Sopapilla’s. If you want to join us there, please stop by. Or if you have a relationship with a restaurateur, call them and ask them to join in the relief efforts by joining the current list of restaurants. Restaurants can email: [email protected] to be included. StyleBlueprint will be updating our Facebook page when new restaurants are added to the list.
Once again, Nashville we ADORE you. No other city in America compares when it comes to giving and giving and giving.
