Dine Out for Education is August 30

Josh FloryOur Town Youth

Knox County Schools is asking community members to participate in the 19th annual “Dine Out for Education” on Tuesday, August 30. The promotion, presented by Graphic Creations, is a joint effort of Knox County Schools and the Partners in Education (PIE) Foundation, and in the past has raised more than $15,000 by approximately 40 participating restaurants.

What do you need to do? Simply have breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack at one of the participating restaurants below. These restaurants are graciously donating 10% of their profits from that day’s sales.

Proceeds help fund PIE Foundation projects, which allows teachers and principals to request funding for needs that their budget does not often cover including technology, professional development and playground equipment. View the school needs lists here. See the list of participating restaurants here.
