Maureen Ewing, the Executive Director of RSVP of Boulder County, contacted me over the summer. “Thanks,” she wrote. “The Camera ads have been very effective in bringing in restaurant patrons to support our cause to help veterans!”

I’ve waited until now to mention it because RSVP’s annual Hungry for Change event is happening next week, and it’s an easy way to raise much needed funds for our local veterans. All you have to do is eat at a participating restaurant on Veterans Day; 15 percent of the proceeds will be donated to programs serving veterans at RSVP of Boulder County as well as Veterans Helping Veterans Now and Carriage House Community Table.

The Camera is proud to support RSVP of Boulder County as well as 120 other hard-working local nonprofit organizations every year with our time, talent and more than $2 million of support.

Visit www.rsvpboulder.org to learn more about the Hungry for Change event as well as the many other ways RSVP of Boulder County serves our community. Then put your appetite to good use on Veterans Day

next Wednesday, Nov. 11 and visit one (or more!) of the participating restaurants: 4580, Blue Parrot Restaurant, Burnt Toast, Casa Alvarez, Leenies Southern Cafe, Murphy’s South, Nepal Cuisine, Pinocchios, Pioneer Inn, The Sink, Vic’s Espresso, Walnut Cafe and South Side Walnut Cafe.
