Restaurant Days

We would like to invite your business to be a stop on our restaurant tour

United Way Wednesdays, our fund-raiser with local restaurants, takes place each fall as a way for local restaurants to support critical United Way programs. One restaurant will be featured each Wednesday from August through November.


Now is the time to support local restaurants:

Visit these wonderful area supporters on the dates below and tell them you appreciate their support of not only United Way, but the entire community.

  • May 13: Bailey's Coffee
  • May 20: Tropical Smoothie Cafe
  • May 27: Zoup
  • June 3: Chompz
  • June 10: The Abbey
  • June 17: TCBY
  • June 24: Tony's Too
  • July 1: Krazy Cakes
  • July 8: Tiramisu


Excellent exposure for your restaurant:

  • WGEM mentions (TV & radio)
  • Social media coverage before & after (including a final check presentation, weekly eNewsletter, and Facebook)
  • On-site promotion including signage and T-Shirts
  • Any additional promotions you would like to incorporate

How it works:

  • On your chosen day, your restaurant will donate a portion of the daily sales made that day to United Way (a minimum of 15% is suggested but not mandatory).
  • United Way will recognize your contribution during our campaign.
  • Proceeds need to be delivered to United Way within 30 days of your promotion day. 
  • It takes all of us coming together to reach our goal. Can we count you in?
