The United Way in Waukesha County has started it's third year of the United We Dine program. How the program works is that local area restaurants join forces with United Way in Waukesha County to donate part of their proceeds on a selected day to the organization. This year the program has expanded to run thru December!
I participated last year by specifically choosing to go to certain places on certain days just to support the United Way in Waukesha County. And yes, I am specifically writing out their full name each time because the proceeds of United We Dine go directly to the Waukesha County affiliate of United Way. The money stays here folks!
On top of the select restaurant featured each day, Moe's Southwest Grill in Pewaukee is donating 20% of all the catering orders received in October to United Way in Waukesha County. (One catch - you must mention United Way when placing the order!) If you haven't eaten at Moe's, definitely check it out and then consider it for a catered event later this month :)
So let's break down these places to get you more familiar with them. For the full schedule in a nice neat form, click here.
