What could be better than hitting the outdoor patio at Coho Café? How about dining out to help find a cure?
Coho Café in Issaquah will host a fundraiser July 17 to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s 3-Day for the Cure walk in September.
The restaurant has teamed up with a dining membership company, allowing members to donate their meal savings to The Rack Warriors, a local team of 10 women who are walking in Seattle’s 60-mile event this September.
So where do you come in? All you need to do is eat lunch or dinner.
“On this one Saturday, we will be offering our guests the opportunity to raise money for breast cancer research and awareness by donating a portion of their Passport savings to The Rack Warriors and the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure,” Heather VanDorn, a manager at Coho Café in Issaquah, said in a news release.
The restaurant will host the event through its partnership with Passport Unlimited, a popular dining membership. With the Passport Unlimited membership, guests dining with other people typically receive their second entrée on the house.
During the event, instead of getting the second meal for free, you can pay for it and donate the price to The Rack Warriors. If you do, there are a variety of coupons and door prizes restaurant employees will award in return.
“Every dollar raised will literally save lives,” team leader Abby McCune said.
The fundraiser also occurs at Coho Café in Redmond and both Arnies locations in Mukilteo and Edmonds.
“These women are our friends, co-workers, chefs, employees, members of our community, our wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters,” said Steve Price, president Arnies and Coho Café restaurants, said in the release. “This disease affects us all, and we are happy to be able to host an event that is dedicated to finding a cure.”
