The 6th annual United We Dine took place recently, surely Clarksville's most user-friendly fundraiser, supporters simply had to dine at one of their favorite restaurants, and a percentage of their purchase would be donated to United Way.
“United We Dine is a local event that we do every year,” United Way's Sarah Wood said. “This is our 6th year. We partner with local restaurants and they donate 10% or more of their proceeds from that day to United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region.”
Local restaurants from Lasater's Coffee & Tea to Mugsy's Coffee Co., Golly G's to Coldstone Creamery, Edward's to Nicoletta's at The Club, and many others participated this year.
“It's just fun to support local businesses, and also support the community through United Way,” Wood said. “We have 22 participating restaurants this year. We are so excited. This event has really grown over the years.”
