Water Fund Event Proposal & Details
As part of WSSC Water’s efforts to raise additional money and awareness for the Water Fund, local restaurants within our service area will be solicited by the Tommy + Kelly Show (Real.Fun.DC) to participate in a pilot program. The objective of this pilot program is to work with four diverse restaurants. In Prince George’s County, the two participating restaurants will be Henry’s Soul Café in Oxon Hill and Franklins in Hyattsville. In Montgomery County, Cielo Rojo in Takoma Park and Founding Farmers in Rockville will participate. Event promotion begins on April 19. The promotion at the restaurants will run from May 2 - 9, 2021. This thoughtful community-driven campaign will tell the story of WSSC’s excellent history of clean water while raising awareness and donations for the Water Fund from diners in both Prince George’s and Montgomery counties. As part of the promotion, the Tommy + Kelly Show (Real.Fun.DC) purchased gift cards directly from the participating restaurants to be used for social and on-air contest.
