Paint The Town Red, where local eateries donate 25 per cent of the day’s net sales to United Way Peterborough & District, returns on Wednesday (July 17).

For the 2019 event, 35 restaurants, cafes, and pubs are participating — the most since the annual fundraiser first began seven years ago, says United Way campaign chair David Goyette.

“I am thrilled be part of Paint the Town Red this year, and even more excited to see restaurants in the County of Peterborough participating for the first time, including Jack’s Restaurant in Lakefield and Rallis Burger Family Restaurant in Bridgenorth.”

Since 2013, local businesses participating in the event have donated more than $75,000 to the United Way to support the community; last year’s event raised $16,000.

The event was founded in 2013 by Michael VanDerHerberg when he was co-owner of the popular Silver Bean Café in downtown Peterborough, which is participating in the fundraiser for the seventh 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.
