Some people sell chocolates, some people grow mustaches, some people run marathons, and there are even some people who go from door to door to raise money for their favorite charities. Well, “some people” have never met Todd Ruggere of Grafton, MA. Last year he traveled to every single town in Massachusetts (351 of them) and had a beer there. His hope was to meet some great people, have some great beer, but most importantly raise some money for children’s cancer research.
But, how could he expect the amazing reaction that he would receive from people who were following his journey? They’d give him suggestions of where to have a drink, would invite him over for a beer, and they’d set up amazing events upon his arrival that would help him to raise about $40,000 by the end of his trip. But, he’s not stopping there.
Mastercard is standing up to cancer again this year with their Stand Up To Cancer campaign. All you need to do is buy at least a $10 meal at any restaurant with your Mastercard. With every purchase they will donate a penny to Stand Up To Cancer or 2 cents if you make a PayPal transaction at the restaurant, up to $4,000,000. While a penny might not seem like a lot, that money will add up very quickly. Already, since July 12, $1,280,280 has been raised! The Stand Up To Cancer Mastercard campaign goes until September 28, 2013, so get out there and get eating! Normally, we’d create a list of our favorite spots for you to check out, but you see that all the time with our posts and our annual OmNomy Awards. So, we thought we’d ask you all, our fellow OmNomivores:
What’s your favorite spot in Fairfield County? Let us know down below by commenting or by talking with us on Twitter or Facebook. We’ll update the list down below. Let’s all take a stand against cancer!
OmNomivore Favorite Restaurants in Fairfield County
The village of Georgetown is nestled right where Redding, Weston, Wilton, and Ridgefield meet. One of our favorite restaurants in the area is Bistro 7, a farm to table restaurant that has been pulling in some rave reviews (like ours and Local Food Rocks). And, one of the restaurants who will be providing food this year, Luca Ristorante Italiano, is another on our must-eat list. But, believe it or not, there’s more to life and a village than just food. Yes, that’s hard to believe, especially coming from two food bloggers. So, let’s tell you a bit about Georgetown Day, this year on June 9 from 4-10 pm on Main Street. Don’t worry, we’ll talk about the food, too…
