Tucson Restaurants: Eating for a Cause

This week there are three events to eat for a cause

Dine out for PCC
On Tuesday, April 13 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., 10 percent of food sales will be donated by Zona 78 (both locations) when you present a flier. You can download the flier here benefiting Desert Vista Endowment in the PCC Foundation.

Dine out for the Animals
On Wednesday, April 14 from 5 to 8 p.m., 15 percent of the check will be donated to the Humane Society when you eat at Sweet Tomatoes (both locations). Flier must be presented in order to eat for the Humane Society.

Dine out for World Care & Santa Cruz Heritage Alliance

On Wednesday, April 14 the dining room at Maynards will become the scene of the dinner served on the Titanic the night before it went down in the Atlantic Ocean 98 years ago on April 15, 1912. Beginning at 5 p.m, guests will gather in the Market for hors d’oeuvres and wine.  Following the cocktail hour, guests will move to the dining room where they will enjoy a multi-course dinner with paired wines.  Artfully recreated and updated by Executive Chef Addam Buzzalini, the menu will feature a blend of classic international cuisine with wine pairings selected by Maynards Sommelier Lars Fasel to perfectly compliment each course.  The cost is $98 per person  (tax and gratuity additional).  A portion of the proceeds from the dinner will be donated to World Care and the Santa Cruz Heritage Alliance. Reservations may be made at Maynards Market located at 400 S. Toole Avenue or by calling 545-0577.
