Last year, through The Charlottesville Restaurant Gift Card Program, we and many other restaurant lovers bought gift cards from Charlottesville restaurants to provide needed cash flow to restaurants struggling to endure the pandemic. Now that Charlottesville restaurants have reopened for business, we are paying it forward by giving away to a lucky reader the $200 Ivy Inn gift card we bought last March.
Over the last week, hundreds of readers entered the drawing, both by liking social media posts and by supporting Ivy Inn co-owner Vangelopoulos in his Journey of Awesomeness, a 200-mile bike ride to raise funds for clean water and food for those in need. Thank you, Charlottesville for all of the support. Still like to help? Make your donation here.
Congratulations to the drawing’s winner: Izzy Brodsky.
Meanwhile, let’s eat!
