13th Annual Bites for Rights to be held June 21stSalem-News.com
BRO’s most delicious fundraiser of the year hopes to hit 100 spots across Oregon.
(PORTLAND, OR) - Restaurants, coffee shops, carts, bars and bakeries around the state will donate a generous percentage of their day’s proceeds to Basic Rights Oregon on June 21st.
“This is one of the most fun – and easy – fundraisers we have all year,” said Basic Rights Oregon’s development Director Juan Martinez. “How often do you get to take a stand for equality simply by going out for coffee, brunch, drinks, dinner or dessert?”
Last year, nearly 100 restaurants state-wide took part in Bites for Rights, including several in Southern Oregon, the coast and the Central Willamette Valley. A long list of Portland establishments take part each year, from restaurants like Byways Café, The Gilt Club and Mother’s Bistro, to dessert spots like Cupcake Jones, bars like the Davis Street Tavern, and food carts like Big Ass Sandwiches, to name a few.
“This is really a team effort,” said Martinez. “We’re so thankful to the supportive businesses who make this possible each year, but it can’t be a success without our supporters taking part. By dining out June 21st, you can support Basic Rights Oregon’s efforts in transgender justice, racial justice and the freedom to marry, as well as sending a powerful message to business owners that supporting LGBT is good business!”
Do you have a restaurant, bar, coffee shop, or food cart interested in participating in this year’s Bites for Rights? Does your business, organization, or community group want to take part in Bites for Rights for your monthly meeting with a restaurant near you?
