In support of the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, The Charlottesville 29 is pleased to present The 2019 Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions, and the raffle to Win a Year of Bodo’s. (Enter the Bodo’s raffle here.)
The Charlottesville 29 answers: if there were just 29 restaurants in Charlottesville, what would be the ideal 29? Now, the restaurants of The Charlottesville 29 are coming together to help feed the area’s hungry by creating once-in-lifetime dining experiences for whoever pledges the highest donation to the food bank. Thanks to the generosity of the restaurants, every dollar goes directly to the food bank. And thanks to the food bank’s efficiency, each dollar is enough to provide four meals to the area’s hungry, meaning the auction winners’ meals will result in thousands more for the area’s hungry.
These meals will come at a critical time. One out of every eleven people in our region struggles to put food on the table, which can have lasting consequences for those in need. No one does more do fight this crisis than the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Now you can join the food bank and the restaurants of The Charlottesville 29 in feeding those in need.
Each day we will announce a new online auction of a once-in-a-lifetime experience of a restaurant of The Charlottesville 29. Each auction will last at least 30 days, after which the winner will make a donation to the food bank in the amount of their winning bid, and then enjoy their unforgettable, all-inclusive restaurant experience.
Even if you do not bid, you can still help the cause in appreciation of restaurants’ efforts. Donate here, and indicate that your donation is in honor of The Charlottesville 29 auctions.
Links to auction descriptions will be added below as they are announced. Group bidding is welcome.
