ELIZABETHTOWN - A pair of Elizabethtown restaurants will open their doors on Thursday, Jan. 13 to help a good cause.
The first-ever Dine Out for the United Way of the Adirondacks will take place on Jan. 13, with the Cobble Hill Inn and the Deers Head Inn lending their restaurants to help raise funds.
"I have been helping the United Way through ACAP with the toy drives and the baby shower," Chrissy Cashin, owner of the Cobble Hill Inn, said. "They asked if I could help them out with this event, and whenever they ask me for something, I like to do it for them."
"The United Way offers a lot of great things," Joanne Baldwin, co-owner of the Deers Head Inn, said. "This is a nice way for people to come out and donate through going out to their local restaurant, and it is also a nice way that we can help out."
Restaurants in all Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties will be participating in the Dine Out for United Way by either donating a percent of their proceeds, a percent of the wait staff tips or a straight donation to the United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc.
The public can help by simply dining out at one of the participating restaurants.
People who mention at the participating restaurants that they are there to Dine Out for United Way to enter into the drawing for raffle prizes that have been donated to the United Way. These prizes include a signed Buffalo Bills and New York Jets jersey, a signed New York Giants football, gift certificates, a gift basket from Adirondack Specialty Food and other prizes.
There are seven participating restaurants in Clinton County; two in Franklin County, including Charlie's Inn in Lake Clear and Donovan's in Malone; and three in Essex County, including the Carillon Restaurant in Ticonderoga.
