The annual Paint the Town Red fundraiser for the United Way returns for its sixth straight year on Wednesday, July 18th, 2018.

During the fundraiser, 32 participating restaurants, cafes, and pubs will donate 25 per cent of the day’s net sales to the United Way of Peterborough and District.

Since 2013, local businesses participating in the event have donated more than $60,000 to the United Way to support the community.

Providence, the new men's clothing store, bar, cafe, and barbershop in downtown Peterborough, is participating for the first time in this year's Paint The Town Red fundraiser for the United Way. Along with 32 other restaurants, cafes, and pubs, Providence will donate 25 per cent of its net sales of food and beverages to the United Way on Wednesday, July 18th.

The event was founded in 2013 by Michael VanDerHerberg, director of resident services at Peterborough Housing Corporation and co-owner (with his wife Andrea) of the popular Silver Bean Café in downtown Peterborough — which is participating in the fundraiser for the sixth straight year.

“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 said after founding the event.

Last year’s event also included 32 restaurants. This year, 18 of those same businesses are participating again and another 14 are either joining for the first time or returning again.
