Dining out generates dollars for schools March 14

More than 30 restaurants will participate in the third annual Dine Out for Education program to be held across Knox County all day Tuesday, March 14.

The restaurants will join hands with other businesses that are members of the Partners in Education program to make a high quality on-line research tool available to every student in Knox County Schools.

“All you have to do is eat at one of the Dine Out For Education restaurants on March fourteenth,” said Scott Bacon, Knox County Schools supervisor of business partnerships. “Eat every meal out or just one meal, and ten percent of what you spend will be donated to the Knox County Schools Partners In Education program.”

Participating restaurants have agreed to donate 10 percent of their pretax revenues for the day to the Partners In Education program.

“Proceeds for the Dine Out For Education event will provide online research tools for school libraries across the school system,” Bacon said.

Bacon added the Partners In Education program connects schools throughout Knox County with nearly 500 contributing organizations.

Businesses, civic clubs, professional organizations, churches, government agencies and even individuals are making differences in schools with their time, talent and resources. Organiz-ations can join this effort by contacting the Public Affairs Office of the Knox County School System at 865-594-1909.
