The Paint the Town Red fundraiser on Wednesday, July 19th is even bigger this year, with a record 32 Peterborough restaurants taking part.

During the fifth annual fundraiser, participating restaurants will donate 25 per cent of the day’s sales to the United Way of Peterborough and District.

The event was founded in 2013 by Michael VanDerHerberg, director of resident services at Peterborough Housing Corporation and co-owner of the Silver Bean Café in downtown Peterborough with his wife Andrea.

“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 featured 21 restaurants and raised over $10,000, bringing the total to over $45,000 since 2013.
