A Message From Sam Vaught

My mother grew up in a poor family in Europe, sometimes not knowing where her next meal would come from. She often told me through the years that I didn't know what hungry was when I would say "Mama I'm hungry." Seeing people hungry broke her heart, because she had been in their shoes. So she gave to the Food Bank to help support it and its mission. I'm starting this fund raising page in memory of my mother, Toni Vaught. Won't you help me make her proud and support Open Hand, an organization that feeds those in need? Thank you!

About This Campaign

With the current challenges posed to the city’s food service industry, Open Hand is turning the tables on Dining Out For Life 2020 by inviting you to “Dine In” and support our local restaurants with take-out, curbside pick-up or delivery the week of April 27 – May 3.

We are refocusing our efforts on a virtual event in hopes of joining the community together to “Dine In” and do good for the generous restaurant partners that have supported Open Hand over the last three decades. Traditionally Dining Out for Life has included thousands of people who have dined out for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner with a portion of sales benefitting Open Hand Atlanta. However, in the face of the challenges posed to the restaurant industry at this time, Open Hand will not be receiving a portion of this year's restaurant proceeds. So this year more than ever, we rely on you, our generous donors, to ensure that our clients – those most vulnerable to this virus – have the meals they need and the peace of mind knowing that we are still here for them during this time of crisis by making a donation directly to Open Hand.

RAFFLE! Your donation enters you into a drawing for a chance to win two round trip tickets on Southwest Airlines good for the next twelve months!

Visit DiningOutForOH.org for our list of participating restaurants and more information on how you can help support our event!

      Mitch, Thank you so much! The restsurants aren't able to give a percentage of the sales this year, so we're to help out this way! This means so much!
