Excellence for Every Child
Dine Out for Education is perhaps the easiest, and most delicious, way to support Knox County Schools. On Tuesday, April 4, 2017, approximately 43 area restaurants with 72 locations will donate 10 percent of their proceeds from the day’s sales to our schools.
To celebrate this special day, Interim Superintendent Buzz Thomas and incoming Superintendent Bob Thomas, along with members of the Board of Education and a few other elected officials, will enjoy lunch together at Brown Bag in the First Tennessee Building at 11:30 a.m. No official school business is expected to be discussed.
Last year, the daylong culinary campaign helped raise just over $23,000 for Knox County Schools Partners in Education (PIE) programs. This year, KCS hopes to raise $25,000 and all community members need to do is let one of our many participating restaurants do the cooking (for breakfast, lunch and dinner).
To help you plan your meals in support of Knox County Schools, a complete list of participating restaurants and locations—13 new this year including Balter Beerworks, Barley’s Taproom, Bistro by the Tracks, Crown and Goose, El Charro Mexican Restaurant, Fieldhouse Social, Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken, Mad Greek International Café, Snappy Tomato Pizza, Stefanos Pizza, Sunspot, Sweet P’s BBQ & Downtown Dive and Tropical Smoothie Café—can be found at knoxschools.org/dofe. As you dine, feel free to share it socially with #DineOut4Ed.
