Special to The SUN
Looking for great Christmas, holiday, Valentine’s Day or just plain special occasion gifts for family, friends, employee rewards, client appreciation, etc., or simply to treat yourself? Look no further.
United Way dining certificates are now available, offering fine dining at many of our great restaurants, delis, bakeries and coffee shops.
Certificates are sold for $25 and may be redeemed at full face value at any of the participating local establishments. For every certificate redeemed, the establishment donates $5 back to United Way of Archuleta County. These donations will help United Way reach its 2015-2016 campaign goal of $61,000 and allow its partner agencies to continue to provide much-needed services to our community.
Present your certificate to your server when ordering. Most restaurants allow the use of multiple certificates at one sitting as long as your meal totals or exceeds the total value of all certificates. Some also allow the certificates to be used for beverages as well as food items. Please tip your server on the full value of your meal.
Certificates are easy to get. They may be purchased at the Pagosa Lakes Recreation Center, Chamber of Commerce, Pagosa Springs Visitor Center (checks only, no cash), Ross Aragon Community Center and from United Way partner agency representatives. You may also order certificates or obtain more information about this program and United Way by calling Bill Hudgins at 946-1624 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
