Dine United-Giving Tuesday

After spending time with family and friends, reflecting on all there is to be thankful for, Giving Tuesday is a day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 27th, the United Way of the Big Bend will host their 3rd annual Dine United event. Restaurants will be competing with one another to see who can attract the most customers on this day, and raise the most money to pour back into the community.
Dine United is an event held by United Way of Big Bend, encouraging community members to share a meal on Giving Tuesday with friends and family at one of the participating restaurants. A percentage of their proceeds will benefit United Way’s mission to raise awareness, mobilize resources, and find collaborative, targeted solutions for the community’s most vital concerns. From sun up to sun down, the following participating restaurants will serve delectable food to hungry patrons: Chicken Salad Chick, Tin Lizzy’s Cantina, and Axios Lifestyle Spa.
Chicken Salad Chick has won the competition for the last two years. For a second year, owner, Bob Gosselin, has generously put both locations into the competition. Tin Lizzy’s Cantina in college town is also a returning competitor, hoping Taco Tuesday may tip the scales in their favor. Finally Axios Lifestyle Spa, who just celebrated their 5th anniversary, has jumped into the competition for the first time. Axios is located in midtown between Sweat Therapy and Finnegan’s. Stop in for a salt treatment or massage and grab an acai bowl on your way out! The winner of the 3rd Annual Dine United competition will be announced at a later date. The winning establishment receives bragging rights for the whole year along with a prestigious plaque.
