Louisville, KY – Apron Inc. presents the popular 7th Annual Dine-Around event featuring participating restaurants donating a portion of their profits. Pick a spot to have breakfast, lunch and or dinner from the below list and know you have just helped a person in need who works in the F&B industry!
The mission of Apron Inc. is to provide temporary, limited financial aid to professionals in need who work in local owned restaurants and locally run F&B industry-based establishments in the Louisville Metro area. Clients have either experienced financial distress due to an illness, injury or other life hardships needing financial relief, the funds raised at ALL Apron Inc. events go directly to locals in need of this support.
– Chef Ellen Gill McCarty, Gill on the Go states, “I am so excited to participate in another great Apron fundraising event – Dine-Around not only allows you to eat at some great restaurants, but you also get to help support a great organization which helps so many in the hospitality industry… I should know firsthand since Apron helped me in 2014 after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer, I was overwhelmed with financial difficulties, their support help ease the stress! Please come and dine OR get Delivery on February 27 and make this Dine-Around a success.”
The Louisville independent restaurant scene keeps growing and growing, so Apron Inc. grew out of the need to support the workers at such establishments who fall on hard times, due to
accidents, family emergencies, unexpected medical issues, etc. “We are so lucky here in Louisville- we are quickly becoming a major food destination through the hard work and passion of the workers in our Independent Restaurant Community. Apron’s Dine-Around event is a great way to help support those workers who find themselves in financial need through no fault of their own- and all it costs is the price of a meal at one of our participating restaurants. It’s really a win- win for everyone involved!” Gary Fox, Apron Inc. President.
Thanks to community support we were able to give over $40,000 in grants in 2016 and over $60,000 in 2017!
Last year We gave out $52,000
This includes a special fund we set up to aid employees put out of work by
the spring flooding.
We paid rents amounting to
$24,000 for 35 families.
Please consider to Dine-Around on Wednesday, February 27!
