WHAT IS DINE-A-RAMA?
Few things can beat feasting at your favorite restaurants with friends and family. But feasting while giving back to charity is a double whammy!
Dine-A-Rama is the ultimate FOODIE WEEKEND during the Grey Cup Weekend (Nov 24 – 26) with a number of restaurants to choose from that will be donating a portion of their proceeds to support local cancer care, allowing all foodies to come together to improve lives of others.
PLANNING YOUR DINE-A-RAMA EXPERIENCE
From November 24 to 26th, all you have to do is enjoy a meal at any of the participating restaurants (who will be donating a portion of all sales). You can attend as many restaurants as you’d like from our list and plan your own DIY restaurant crawl with friends, family, or co-workers. For example: explore the town in search of Ottawa’s Best Taco, Ottawa’s Best Dessert,or Ottawa’s Best Vegan fare. You can make a Facebook event and invite a bunch of people to attend with a list of pre-selected restaurants. You can also help us achieve our goal of 100 participating restaurants by tagging and nominating your favorite restaurant to participate on our Facebook event.

WANT TO JOIN AS A RESTAURANT?
Corporate social responsibility is a great way to give back to the community, and it comes with advertising, that’s even better! We’ve had successful food events this year like our Street Food Truck Social where over 1K people attend and 7K people were interested via our Facebook event. Our goal is to exceed this level of interest and offer great visibility for partners.
We ask that participating restaurants make a contribution of their choice as see fits their establishment (% of sales, or fixed amount). Our goal is to have 100 participating restaurants and raise $100,000 for an important project in our community: cyberknife fellow & clinical trials. We offer incentive prizing to thank participating restaurants.

CAUSE AND event history:
Dine-A-Rama was inspired in part by Luke Rochefort from St. Louis Bar and Grill, who survived testicular cancer that had metastasized to his lungs, abdomen, and brain. Today, Luke is alive and cancer free thanks to cutting edge advancements in radiation technology through the Cyberknife and a world class clinical trials program, which were funded right here in Ottawa by Dine-A-Rama. This year, Dine-A-Rama is fundraising for these clinical trials program, and training for more staff to be able to use Cyberknife technology.
*More to come!
