Those who feasted during Binghamton’s 12th Restaurant Week helped raise more than $10,000 for two community organizations, event organizers announced Friday.
Restauranteurs sold 20,647 meals during the event, which wrapped up Sept. 24, and $10,323 from those sales were donated to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW) and the Animal Care Council.
For those who missed out Restaurant Weeks’ fall edition, no need to worry. The spring edition begins March 15.
Participating restaurants during the event craft their own menus, designed to give guests a sampling at what they offer, at a discounted price. Organizers say Restaurant Week provides many participants a much-need sales boost, and it doubles as a way to give back to the community.
Diners are also encouraged to try out new restaurants during the event.
Since Restaurant Week was founded in 2010, it has amassed more than $2.5 million in event sales. The event has helped bring nearly $60,000 in donations to charity partners, which have included Habitat for Humanity the Boys and Girls Clubs of Binghamton.
