Make a Difference this Week: Where to Eat, What to Do, & Where to Go!

One of the things I love most about Washington is that there is never a shortage of fabulous things to do, especially ones that support amazing causes. This week, there are PLENTY of fun, fabulous, and delicious ways to give back.  Have fun being your charitable little self! xo-KC

Make dinner reservations and support a non-profit of your choice! One of the COOLEST things I’ve seen in a while is a new program called Celebrated Chefs, which allows you to designate a non-profit of your choice to receive 5% of your check every time you dine at an extensive list of participating restaurants!  Enrollment is totally free (and includes a fabulous cookbook), so make sure you sign up today!

Buy a ticket to the Bitches who Brunch Summer Soiree and support healthier
One of my favorite blogs is hosting a fabulous summer party on July 9th at Ris (2275
L Street NW) benefitting a cause very close to my heart.  For $45, partygoers get bottomless mimosas (my favorite), passed brunch items, a fashion show, author appearances, and gift bags!  Proceeds will benefit the D.C. Farm to School Network, which serves to get healthier foods into D.C. schools. Just make sure you buy your ticket soon because they won’t be sold at the door!

Head to a Nationals Game and help put an end to domestic violence! Buy a ticket to watch the Washington Nationals take on the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday, June 2nd and support Becky’s Fund, a local non-profit aimed at raising awareness for domestic violence. Tickets bought as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Day will go to support efforts to end domestic violence for good! And, as you stock up on your summer reading, be sure to bring new or gently used children’s books to donate to Artemis House, a women’s shelter in Reston, VA.  So take yourself out to the ballgame and enjoy the fireworks!

Eat at Clyde’s or Old Ebbitt Grill and send kids to camp! Every Wednesday through July 27th, Clyde’s restaurants & Old Ebbitt Grill will donate a portion of the proceeds from a speciality dish to the Washington Post’s Send a Kid to Camp campaign, which sends local area youths to Camp Moss Hollow.  I love this because you can feel good about helping area kids while trying a new dish each week!
