Paint the Town Red, the annual dining fundraiser for United Way of Peterborough and District, returns for the fourth year in a row on Wednesday, July 13th at 21 participating restaurants in Peterborough.

Michael VanDerHerberg, program coordinator at New Canadians Centre and co-owner of the Silver Bean Café in downtown Peterborough with his wife Andrea, founded the event in 2013, which sees participating restaurants donate 25% of their net sales for the day to support the United Way.

“When I think of Peterborough, the generous hearts, the passion to be inclusive, and the importance of breaking bread together, I thought it was a perfect partnership to have the restaurant community collaborate with the proud work of United Way in strengthening the place where we live,” VanDerHerberg says.

Last year’s event raised almost $10,000 for the United Way and many of the same restaurants are again participating this year.

“You can tell the strength of a community by the number of its businesses that support social services organizations,” says campaign chair Gwyneth James. “Judging by the number of restaurants participating in Paint the Town Red, we are a very caring community and should be proud.”

You can help paint the town red by ordering food on Wednesday, July 13th at one or more of the 21 participating restaurants.

While you’re there, please thank the restaurant owners and staff for their generous support of the United Way of Peterborough and District.
