Dine out Thursday to raise money to End Polio Now

Saturday, October 14, 2017

Lake Forest Bar and Grill's is holding their annual collaboration with Lake Forest Park Rotary to help raise funds for the End Polio Now charity.

20% of all sales in the restaurant between 5 and 10pm on Thursday, October 19th will be donated to the cause.

This is the fifth year the restaurant and Rotary have collaborated to raise funds. Last year the event raised $1031 for the cause and they are hoping to beat it this year.

Rotary has been fighting polio since 1979 when they started funding for vaccination of children in the Philippines.

The restaurant will have an array of food specials as well as their full regular menu..

The 20% donation applies to all sales, so even coming and having a glass of wine in the bar will help the cause.

Many of the members, including the leadership, of Lake Forest Rotary will be on hand to answer questions about membership and other projects the organization is involved in.

October 24th is World Polio Day, an event International Rotary started with the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation with the goal of eradicating polio in the world. They have been working together for ten years. The Gates Foundation matches every dollar that Rotary raises 2-to-1.

Last year, there were 11 cases of polio in the world - 6 in Afghanistan and 5 in Pakistan.

Lake Forest Bar and Grill is in Town Center by the Ballinger entrance, 17535 Ballinger Way NE, Lake Forest Park 98155
