VERO BEACH — It’s not too late to purchase a ticket for a raffle to benefit By the River and Sunshine Physical Therapy. The winning ticket to the Fine Dining for Eight Days joint fundraiser will be drawn at 9 a.m. Wednesday, February 9 at Sunshine Physical Therapy, 1705 17th Avenue in Vero Beach.
Some of the area’s finest restaurants are showing their support for the community in a unique fundraiser that will benefit the two local non-profits. The Garden Café at McKee Botanical Gardens recently donated a dinner-for-two, joining together with Stax, Costa D’Este, Green House Café, Lemon Tree, Mulligans and Lobster Shanty to offer “Fine Dining for Eight Days” to one lucky person and their guest. Each sponsoring restaurant donated a dinner-for-two with a total package valued at $425.
Raffle tickets are $30 each, and members of the non-profit organizations will be selling 100 tickets.
Monies raised will go to By the River, the Treasure Coast’s eco-friendly and affordable, independent residential community for low-income seniors. And Sunshine Physical Therapy, an independent outpatient treatment center, founded in l953 by a group of volunteers to serve the physically challenged in the community.
“This is a great way to give back to our community, especially to the elderly and those who are physically challenged,” said Joe Coakley, Director of Charitable Gifts at By the River. “And the winners will have a ball dining out every night for a week. Thank you to all the restaurants who donated to this cause.”
Raffle tickets can be purchased at By the River in Sebastian at (772) 388-5858 and Sunshine Physical Therapy in Vero Beach at (772) 562-6877.
