Here’s the idea

9 Jan

About a year ago, we heard a news story that sounded like something we could do. In small, journalist- and intern-occupied apartments in Washington, D.C., friends were getting together for a dinner club with a cause. Each week, they’d choose a place to have dinner, choose a theme, and cook up a tasty mess of food. And each week, they’d throw a few dollars into a pot. After a few months, the money in the pot went to a local charity.

In Steamboat Springs, Colo., we’ve been happily stealing that idea since winter 2010.

To date, we’ve given a round of donations to the Boys & Girls Club of Steamboat Springs, and have adopted a local family through the United Way’s Holiday Wishes program. Our third donation cycle is under way, and this time around, we’re trying to expand and spread our idea.

So read our recipes, look at our pretty pictures, and start your own Charity Dinner group.

A second round of giving helped adopt a family through the United Way's Holiday Wishes program. It bought this mound of clothes, toys and other presents.
