Uptown Saint John and the restaurants who participated in our Chop Chop Winter Restaurant Week were thrilled this afternoon to present a cheque for $8,221 to Lunch Connection. This amount represents $1 per every Chop Chop dish sold by all restaurants during our recent winter restaurant week this past February.
For Lunch Connection, each dollar provides one meal for a child through this program. They are very appreciative, once again, of this significant and generous donation. Find out more about Lunch Connection here.
Thank you to our event sponsors, Uptown Saint John Inc., 97.3 The Wave, Country 94, Picaroons, Mirage Foods.
Thank you to the uptown restaurants and chefs who always present us with delicious and unique Chop Chop offerings.
BIG thank you to everyone who ate out during Chop Chop Winter Restaurant Week. Know that your indulgence during the week is helping to bring satisfied and full bellies to some very deserving kids.
