    Wow! Jill’s Place is on the list of participating restaurants, pledging to give 15% of their dinner proceeds – right after their reopening after a year of not being in business! This says a lot to me about the character of the ownership there.

    BTW am I supposed to know what CADA stands for? Even on their website, I didn’t find it until at the bottom of the page, small in the lower right corner. Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. (In case anyone else was wondering.)

    Jill is awesome and her restaurant looks amazing! I’m also impressed by the generosity of all the restaurant owners who stepped up – speaks volumes for all 21 on the list. Terrific cause, great event!

    These are great programs that actually do benefit our community and operate on a shoe-string budget. Kudos to all the supporters.
