Help graduates celebrate by dining out

Foster and adoptive families of Fayette County and Thursday's Child Inc., would like to celebrate 45 graduating foster youth. To help fund the party, the groups have paired with restaurants — Carino's Italian Grill and Applebee's — for Dine to Donate. On Monday, the Carino's at 2333 Sir Barton Way and 135 Rojay Drive will donate 10 percent of diners' tabs to the party. On Wednesday, the Applebee's at 910 Beaumont Centre Parkway, 2299 Richmond Road and 1761 Sharkey Way will do the same. Diners must present a copy of a flier for the dinner to qualify. Fliers may be obtained by emailing amvandervort@insightbb.com or vsturgeon@iglou.com. Celebrating 2011 Foster Youth Graduates" is an annual event for young people who might not have family members or a support system; it cheers them on to the next level of their lives. This year's event will be June 18.
