Donate by Dining Out on Capitol Hill TODAY!


In partnership with HillFest 2011, three Capitol Hill restaurants are encouraging everyone to “Donate by Dining Out on Capitol Hill” today, September 22nd.

Choose a participating restaurant for lunch, happy hour, or dinner and a portion of your bill will go to Jan’s Tutoring House (JTH). JTH is a one-on-one tutoring and enrichment program in Capitol Hill. Over 300 students have completed the program since the house was founded in 1990; since 2004, 100 percent of students who have participated for three or more years have graduated from high school. JTH serves first through twelfth graders.

Join the volunteer tutors and help support Capitol Hill’s youth by patronizing the following Hill establishments this afternoon and evening:

Trattoria Alberto (506 8th Street, SE) – donating proceeds from lunch

Zest Bistro (735 8th Street, SE) – donating proceeds from dinner

Tunnicliff’s Tavern (222 7th Street, SE) – donating proceeds from beverages and food ordered at the bar throughout the evening
