Nearly 40 Knoxville restaurants with 80 locations throughout Knox County will
participate in the 10th annual Knox County Schools “Dine Out For Education”
event on Tuesday, April 16, 2013.
All participants have to do is eat at participating restaurants on April 16, and
10 percent of their pre-tax total will be donated to the Knox County Schools
Partners in Education program. Proceeds raised from the 2013 Dine Out For
Education event will be used to help fund Partners in Education programs,
such as the annual Knox County Schools Career Day for eighth graders and
high school students, Teacher Supply Depot, Schooled for Success, Barney
Thompson scholarships, and various teacher recognition programs.
Nearly $20,000 was raised from Dine Out For Education in 2012. Proceeds from
past events have been used toward the purchase of a new diagnostic van for
vision service programs, online research tools for school libraries, and defraying
costs of the annual Knox County Schools Career Day.
Partners in Education connects schools throughout Knox County with
approximately 600 contributing organizations, businesses, civic clubs, churches,
government agencies and individuals who want to make a difference in schools
with their time, talent and resources.
