Boston Restaurants Rally to Support Boston Marathon Victims (Press Release), April 17, 2013

I wanted to pass along an important press release regarding a fund raising effort put on by the restaurants of our great city to help the victims of Monday's attacks.  A good meal for our sick and injured:

Participation Doubles Overnight & Growing! Greater Boston Restaurants Rally to Support Boston Marathon Victims

(BOSTON, MA) - Always one of the first to mobilize, the Greater Boston restaurant community is coming together in various ways in response to yesterday’s Boston Marathon tragedy. On Wednesday, April 17th, 2013 several restaurants across the Greater Boston area and beyond will band together and donate a percentage of their sales to the victims of yesterday’s tragedy via The Greg Hill Foundation.
The organization was selected based on its hyper-local nature and its history of immediate action in directing funds to those most in need. “All of the donations will go directly to the families. There is no red tape and we can give the donations out immediately,” said Greg Hill.

Restaurants will donate from (10%-25%) of their evenings sales on Wednesday, April 17th, 2013. While the list is growing, current restaurants participating include:

About The Greg Hill Foundation:
To celebrate 20 years on the air at WAAF in Boston, Greg Hill formed a foundation in June of 2010 that would respond to the immediate needs of families that had been touched by tragedy. Feeling a strong obligation to communities that had supported his radio show, he wanted to create a foundation that would be able to harness his incredibly generous media audience and that would be able to assist in a tragic time at a moment’s notice.
