Remember when you dine out Tuesday, May 6, at certain restaurants across Whatcom County you'll be helping pay for hot meals for the hungry.
More than 30 local restaurants are participating in the 14th annual Dine Out for Maple Alley Inn, donating 20 percent of their sales on Tuesday. The money goes to an Opportunity Council program that provides free meals to anyone in need.
Maple Alley Inn serves more than 14,000 meals every year, and Dine Out raises between $22,000 and $25,000 every year.
The council is hoping to set a new record for money raised this year
