Raising funds for a drive-in roast chicken dinner in Dresden
Succulent roast chicken and the spirit of generosity meet at a drive-in dinner in Dresden on October 22.
The event is a win-win – local businesses and non-profits come together to support everyone.
“Creative collaborations are the new way forward for the United Way of Chatham-Kent,” Patricia Peters, interim CEO, said in a press release.
“We are joining forces with businesses in Dresden to have a positive impact on community programs. As we connect, we listen carefully – we want to know what is important to the Dresden community. »
Agencies such as Dresden Foodbank and Dresden Side Streets Youth Center are seeing increased need as Chatham-Kent begins to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
A portion of the funds raised through dinner ticket sales, beverage and non-perishable food donations will support all.
Get your tickets for the Drive-In Grilled Chicken Dinner at McKellar’s Flowers and Gifts (445 St George Street) in Dresden or the Chatham-Kent Nonprofit Center (425 McNaughton Avenue West) in Chatham.
Tickets are $20 for a large box (three pieces of chicken, potatoes, coleslaw, buns, and dessert) or $12 for a small (two pieces of chicken without coleslaw).
Lunch box pick-up will take place at Maple Mutual Insurance, 29553 St George Street, Dresden, ON N0P 1M0 on October 22 from 4:30-6 p.m.
Team members from Burns Restaurant, Dresden Side Streets Youth Centre, Dresden Foodbank and United Way of Chatham-Kent will be in attendance.
