    Great to see the restaurants that are participating.  It shows they are willing to give back to the community and a good cause.  Also very sad that there are only 4 in our area.

    I agree.  In the past several West Seattle restaurants participated.  Where are the others?

      Hasn’t really been that much change over the past several years. This year, four West Seattle/White Center restaurants; five last year; six the year before that and a year earlier; but, then a year before THAT – now we’re to 2012 – it was four, the same as this year. Meantime, there’s been an increase in dine-out fundraisers for other causes, and many local restaurants give to other causes (silent-auction gift certificates, for example). Positive reinforcement probably works best, to thank the local businesses you know give to various causes (if you don’t know, ask them, in many cases you’ll be surprised how MUCH many independent local businesses give – we try to do a fair amount of that ourselves). BTW I didn’t want to clunk up this story but there’s also “Dine Out for Hunger” coming up on May 3rd, GiveBIG day, to support the White Center Food Bank – Noble Barton’s in on that one too, as are Proletariat, Zippy’s (WC), and Full Tilt (WC) – more here. – TR
