The 2019 Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions

by Charlottesville29


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 have come 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.
