United Way dining certificates are available

If you’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to take a friend to lunch at your favorite restaurant, or to try a new one, United Way Dining Certificates are hot off the presses.

Dining certificates cost just $20 and are valid at any of the 27 local restaurants listed below. For every certificate redeemed, the restaurant donates $4 to United Way here in Archuleta County.

United Way Dining Certificates may be purchased and used until April 30. Present the certificate to your server before ordering your food and use the full $20 value. Certificates are available for purchase at the Chamber of Commerce, Ross Aragon Community Center, PLPOA Recreation Center, as well as from United Way board members and volunteers, the United Way office located in the Jann C. Pitcher Real Estate building, and representatives of United Way’s 18 local partner agencies.

The United Way hopes that you will support this program through holiday gifts and by keeping several certificates in your car so they will be readily available the next time you stop to eat at one of the following participating restaurants, eight of which are new to the program this year: A Chivalrous Shark, Alley House Grille, Austin’s BBQ, Bacci Italian Restaurant, Bear Creek Saloon and Grill, Boss Hogg’s Restaurant and Saloon, Boulder Coffee Cafe, Buffalo Inn Restaurant and Bar, Cafe Colorado, Chavolo’s Mexican Restaurant, Chimney Rock Restaurant and Tavern, DSP Pizzeria, Elkhorn Cafe, Farrago Market Cafe, Higher Grounds Coffee Company, Kip’s Grill and Cantina, Nello’s Bistro, Pagosa Baking Company, Pagosa Brewing and Grill, Pagosa Peaks Pizza, Plaza Grille, Ramon’s Mexican Restaurant, San Juan Road House, Shang Hai Chinese Restaurant, Thai Chili, The Pines Restaurant at Pagosa Springs Golf Club, and The Rose.

United Way’s goal is to raise $81,000 in Archuleta County to support 18 charitable organizations right here at home. United Way’s local partner agencies are American Red Cross Southwest Colorado Chapter, Archuleta County Education Center, San Juan Basin Area Agency on Aging, Archuleta County Victim Assistance Program, Axis Health System, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Colorado, Girl Scouts of Colorado, Habitat for Humanity of Archuleta County, Housing Solutions for the Southwest, Pagosa Outreach Connection, Pagosa Springs Youth Center, Pagosa Waldorf Initiative, Pagosa Pregnancy Support Center, Seeds of Learning, Southwest Smilemakers Dental Program, Southwest Conservation Corps, Volunteers of America Colorado Branch and Tri-County Headstart.
