This past weekend, Chattanoogans teamed up with Jack’s Chattanoggins (say that three times fast) to help raise money for the Children’s Hospital Foundation at Erlanger. Next week, join forces with Chattanooga CARES to take a bite out of HIV/AIDS . . . somewhat literally.
CARES is a local nonprofit that provides both affordable care and medication to HIV/AIDS positive individuals, as well as free, rapid HIV testing to the general public. CARES also focuses on support, outreach, and education around greater Chattanooga.
CARE for a Bite (along with Strides of March and Cut Up for Life), is one of three annual fundraising events hosted by CARES to ensure that its services will continue to be available to those who need it. Helping is as easy as eating, and since that’s something we all have to do anyway, we might as well do some good while we’re at it.
During selected hours on Wednesday June 19, participating area restaurants will donate 25 percent of their profits to CARES. The list includes The Public House, Alleia, St. John’s Meeting Place, The Big Chill, Brewhaus, Mojo Burrito, Tremont Tavern, Sing It or Wing It, Ototto and BiBa’s.
