Dine Out to Donate revamped for COVID-19

Each October, Interlakes Area United Way asks people to Dine Out to Donate. The annual event invites people to dine at participating restaurants on one designated day with a portion of sales donated to the United Way.

The United Way plans to host the fundraising event again this year but has revamped the format to align with COVID-19 safety measures.

For the month of October, the Interlakes Area United Way will sell gift certificates and gift cards to various dining establishments in Lake, Miner and Moody Counties. Participating businesses have agreed to donate a portion of the total sales to the United Way.  

All gift cards and certificates can be purchased online at interlakesunitedway.org/dineout or by calling 605-291-6359. Each business has also been assigned a QR code that can be accessed on flyers, on display within the establishment.

Sales will take place October 1 through October 31. Participating businesses include:

  • 2nd Street Diner in Madison
  • Classic Corner in Madison
  • Dairy Queen in Madison
  • Hillside Steakhouse & BluCabana Bar on Lake Madison
