Dine Out To Benefit Madrona K-8 On April 8

Madrona School

Almost anywhere you eat on 34th Avenue on April 8 will benefit Madrona K-8 School as part of its 6th annual Dine Out fundraiser. Participating restaurants will be donating a portion of the day’s sales to the school, which will be using the proceeds directly to support arts and enrichment programming, including funding two full-time artists in residence from Art Corps, the largest nonprofit arts education program in Seattle.

All you need to do to participate is let the restaurant know you’re there for Dine Out, and enjoy your meal! Participating 34th Avenue restaurants are: Bistro Turkuaz, Bottlehouse, Cupcake Royale/Verite, Hi Spot, Madrona Eatery and Alehouse, Naam, Pritty Boys Family Pizzeria, and St. Cloud’s. Barrio, on 12th Avenue on Capitol Hill will also be participating. Reservations are recommended if you choose a restaurant that takes them.

Dine Out Madrona is sponsored by the Madrona K-8 PTSA.

Madrona Wine Tasting Event in Just Over Two Weeks

Madrona Wine TastingThe Madrona Wine Tasting Event is just a little more than two weeks away: Saturday, Nov 5th, from 6:30 PM to 9 PM at the Madrona Glassybaby studio.  The event, which is $25 per person, includes free wine tasting and light food.  This fun event will raise money for the nonprofit Madrona Community Council and Madrona K-8 School.

Since my previous blog about the wine tasting event,  several local Madrona restaurants have agreed to help with the hors d’oeuvres.  So far, St. Cloud’s, Naam, Bistro Turkuaz and Hi Spot have all agreed to participate.  Others may also get involved, but even if they do not, the food at the event should be fantastic.

Reminder: Dine Out at Madrona Restaurants This Tuesday

Madrona RestaurantsI previously posted about Dine Out to Benefit Madrona K-8 but I wanted to remind people because it should be a fun night.  I have heard several people say they are going out that night – thus you may want to make a reservation if you are thinking of going out for dinner this Tuesday night.

According to the signs I have been seeing in the windows the following Madrona restaurants are donating a portion of their proceeds for the entire day of Tuesday, April 12th to support the arts program at Madrona K-8: Bistro Turkuaz, Bottlehouse, Cupcake Royale/Verite Coffee, Hi Spot, June, Madrona Ale House, Naam, and St. Clouds.
