Restaurants take part in Parkway fundraiser

Written by 

The Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation will hold the first annual Plates for the Parkway event on Sept. 18 in which local restaurants will donate 10 percent of a day’s revenue to the foundation.

Restaurants from communities along the 469 miles of the Parkway are invited to participate, and current participants stretch from the top of the Parkway in Waynesboro, Va. to Sylva. Participating restaurants include Sylva’s City Lights Café and Guadalupe Café. A current list of all participating restaurants can be found at www.platesfortheparkway.org.

“There are so many wonderful restaurants in the communities along the Parkway,” said Christy Bell, development director for the foundation. “For visitors, this event highlights some of these unique places and gives them the opportunity to benefit what brings many of them here in the first place: the Parkway. For those of us lucky enough to live near the Parkway, it’s a fun way to support this amazing place while dining out at a favorite restaurant.”

Restaurants may sign up to participate through Sept. 14. Interested restaurants may contact Christy Bell at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceI’m alone, again.

    As of last Tuesday, I am newly single. To be honest, I’m not happy about that fact. Not one bit. This was the relationship where I felt she was the “one,” a person I truly could see myself marrying and having a family with. That notion — a wife and kids — has been the furthest things from my mind for years.
