Dine & Give 2015
Patrons dine, restaurants give to the Payton Wright Foundation
February 21, 2015
Several area restaurants will donate 10% of their sales on Saturday, February 21, 2015 to benefit the Payton Wright Foundation (PWF), a Sarasota based nonprofit organization providing assistance for families caring for a child with brain cancer. The Broken Egg, Jpan Sarasota and Café Venice Restaurant & Wine Bar are participating in Dine & Give 2015. Proceeds from this inaugural event will go specifically to Payton’s Angels, a program providing care packages with items such as stuffed animals, DVDs, games, coloring books and crayons, a soft throw, all designed to bring a bit of home to a hospitalized child.
Established in 2008 by Patrick and Holly Wright, the foundation honors the memory of their daughter, Payton, who passed away from brain cancer at the age of five. The Foundation works with families, physicians and social workers to provide practical relief for things such as fuel, food, or housing expense so that families can give full concentration to their child’s care and treatment.
“This will be a true gift from the community,” comments Holly Wright, “and we thank the restaurants – and their patrons – for contributing to such an important cause.”
