DELRAY BEACH — Helping veterans who suffer from traumatic brain injuries can be as simple as ordering your favorite dish at a local restaurant this month.
The Help Our Wounded Foundation, a Delray Beach-based nonprofit that funds medical treatment for wounded vets, is launching its “Dine for Veterans” campaign, in participation with more than 20 local restaurants. Beginning Sunday, Nov. 6 through Friday, Nov. 11, restaurants throughout Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties will donate a portion of their proceeds to the HOW Foundation.
Plus, the HOW Foundation received a matching grant for up to $20,000 raised during the campaign, according to coordinators.
The HOW Foundation funds hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment, which administers pure oxygen in a pressurized environment, to treat veterans’ “invisible war wounds,” or traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress, according to the foundation’s website.
The participating restaurants include: Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza in Delray Beach; Bagels With Deli in Delray Beach; Bonefish Grill in Boynton Beach; Cafe Centro in West Palm Beach; Caffe Luna Rosa in Delray Beach; Cut 432 in Delray Beach; E.R. Bradley’s in West Palm Beach; Ellie’s 50s Diner in Delray Beach; Gourmet Killer Dogs in Delray Beach; Johnnie Brown’s in Delray Beach; La Cigale in Delray Beach; and many more.
If you want to participate by eating out at one of the restaurants, check The HOW Foundation’s website at dineforveterans.com. Each restaurant has dedicated a day (or several) to the cause.
