We're so excited about Dine Out for Packard on Thursday, March 7! It's a fun and easy way to give back to our local children's hospital and help children and families in the community.

Is there any way we can get a complete list of Palo Alto restaurants participating in this?
With my kitchen being remodeled, now is a good opportunity for our family to participate in this several times!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
