Leadership Toledo, TFP to launch ‘Restaurant Week’Written by Sarah Ottney | Managing Editor | firstname.lastname@example.org
Leadership Toledo is teaming with Toledo Free Press to organize a Restaurant Week to benefit the local nonprofit as well as showcase the area’s diverse culinary options.
Cory Dippold, director of youth programs for Leadership Toledo, said Restaurant Week is something that is done across the country in most mid-size and larger cities.
“The main goal is that it is a fundraiser for Leadership Toledo, but it is also designed to bring awareness to locally owned restaurants and some of the menu items they have to offer,” Dippold said.
Restaurant Week Toledo is set for March 28 through April 3.
More than 20 restaurants in Toledo and the surrounding area will create menus especially for Restaurant Week and will offer meals for $10, $20 and $30.
Under the three-course option, diners will have several choices for each course, typically an appetizer, entrée and dessert. Beverages, tax and gratuity are not included in the price.
For each purchase, an amount will go to Leadership Toledo, a nonprofit organization was established in 1980. The group fosters leadership and involvement in the greater Toledo area, including expanding a knowledge and awareness of community issues and opportunities, and preparing area residents for more active and informed involvement in community affairs.
The lineup of restaurants is currently being solidified, Dippold said.
Other media partners include FOX Toledo and Star 105.5 FM.
