Dine Out for the Gulf Coast

America’s premier chefs and restaurants unite to create Dine Out for  
the Gulf Coast, benefiting the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund.
 From June 10-12, 2010, participating restaurants throughout the  
United States will set aside a portion of profits to help those  
directly affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of  
Mexico and to support the long-term restoration of the treasured coast.
Participating restaurants will customize their own Dine Out for the  
Gulf Coast benefit program. Some restaurants will contribute a  
percentage of total sales for the day and others will donate the sales  
from specific menu items, while others will offer specialty cocktails  
with a dollar-value from sales donated to the fund.
Many restaurants will highlight Gulf seafood offerings as a way to  
support the Gulf Coast fishing industry (commercial and charter  
fisherman), just declared a national fisheries disaster by Commerce  
Secretary Gary Locke.
The short-term goal of The Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund, administered by  
the Greater New Orleans Foundation, is to make emergency grants to  
nonprofit organizations helping the victims of the oil spill. The long- 
term goal of the fund is to address the long-term economic,  
environmental, cultural effects of the disaster, and strengthen  
coastal communities against future environmental catastrophes by  
investing in solutions. No administrative fees will be charged to the  
fund: all funds will be re-granted to the communities in need.
