The Melting Pot Restaurants of Darien, Conn., Westwood, N.J. and White Plains, N.Y. Get Creative with Fondue-Raisers for Local Charities

The Restaurant Group’s Community Outreach Program Supports Tri-State Charities and Special Interest Groups

Darien, CT, Westwood, NJ and White Plains, NY (PRWEB) February 24, 2012 - To help local charitable organizations and special interest groups raise much needed money and increase awareness for their causes, The Melting Pot fondue restaurants of Darien, Conn., Westwood, N.J. and White Plains, N.Y. will host a number of Fondue-raisers in 2012. Unlike the traditional big ticket benefit galas, Fondue-raisers are a cost-effective way to fundraise since the menu is reasonably priced and guests are able to enjoy a beautiful ambiance with tasty fondue cuisine.

“We sincerely enjoy giving back to the community and our guests share the same sentiment,” said Will Layfield, Owner of The Melting Pot restaurants of Darien, Conn., Westwood, N.J. and White Plains, N.Y. "Our Fondue-raisers let our patrons start conversations about the terrific work being performed by some great local charities while they enjoy a fun night out with fondue in support of a worthy cause. It's a win-win for everyone involved!"

In 2011, the Melting Pot restaurants of Darien, Conn., Westwood, N.J.and White Plains, N.Y. raised over $40,000 for many organizations including St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, PAWS, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (Westchester/Fairfield chapters), Rebuilding Together of Bergen County, Meaningful Movements, The American Cancer Society (Fairfield County chapter), Community Blood Services and many others. The restaurant group plans to open the community outreach program in 2012 to other organizations such as schools, women's organizations, recreation centers, animal welfare groups and other good causes.

Fondue-raisers at The Melting Pot restaurants of Darien, Conn., Westwood, N.J. and White Plains, N.Y. feature custom menus and raffle prizes. These value-added marketing services are offered to your charitable organization at no-charge when planning your Fondue-raiser.
