FLORENCE RESTAURANT WEEK

NORTHWEST ALABAMA
READING AIDES INC.
(aka NARA)

NOMINATION REQUEST
Florence Main Street wants you to nominate your favorite charity between now and October 13th for the opportunity to win $5,000…And NARA Wants YOUR Nomination!!

Selected from the community’s nominations, five charities will be placed on a ballot for guests dining at participating restaurants to vote on during Florence Restaurant Week in October. Submit your local 501c(3) organization as a nominee now and describe why they deserve this prize.  The three most nominated charities will automatically be included on the ballot. Florence Main Street will choose two wild-card charities based on input, nominations, community impact, and other factors. 
Last year during Florence Restaurant Week, Presenting Sponsor McDaniel Window & Door owner, Mike McDaniel, presented the $5000 winning charity check to Shoals Sav-A-Life.  That charity is excluded from this years’ nomination phase because they were the winners last year.
You can nominate your favorite charity through the Florence Main Street poll on its Facebook page, on McDaniel Window & Door’s Facebook page, at www.dineoutflorence.com, or you can mail in your nomination to 301 N Pine Street, Florence, AL 35630.
If you choose to mail in a nomination, please include these items:

  • First & Last Name
  • Email address
  • Name of Charity
  • Why You are Nominating the Charity
  • Name of Executive Director at the Charity ~ Jim Green, NARA Executive Director
  • Contact info for the charity ~ NARA: 501 N Seminary Street, Florence, AL  35630
Ballots will be available at participating restaurants during restaurant week October 21-30.  Every time you eat at a participating restaurant during Florence Restaurant Week, you will have the opportunity to vote for one of our five local charities. Every time you eat, you get to vote!
