LEAGUE CITY — The Clear Creek Education Foundation is hoping the community participates in a special event — Dine Out to Donate — taking place at two Bay Area Houston community mainstays, South Shore Grille and Sudie’s Seafood House. Both restaurants will open their doors Sept. 15, welcoming the community for dinner with a purpose. Up to 50 percent of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to CCEF.
“We can’t thank the owners of South Shore Grille and Sudie’s enough for their generous support of the Clear Creek Education Foundation,” said CCEF Chairman Mike Huss. “Providing up to 50 percent of a restaurant’s proceeds is phenomenal. We appreciate all that these establishments are doing to support educational excellence within our community.”
On Sept. 15, patrons who wish to participate in the effort can simply enjoy dinner at South Shore Grille between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. and Sudie’s between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m.
“I encourage anyone who values the education our students receive within Clear Creek Independent School District to have dinner with us on Sept. 15,” said Mickey Wooten, South Shore Grille owner and CCEF board member. “I also challenge other restaurant owners within the district to join the effort.
“We envision Dine Out to Donate becoming a true communitywide event to give back to the schools through the Clear Creek Education Foundation.”
Sudie’s is also happy to participate in the fundraiser.
“We will offer our full menu and have some fun as we open our doors for this worthy cause,” said Paul Bailey, owner of Sudie’s. “There’s never been a better reason to take your family to dinner on a Monday night.”
CCEF is hosting its first Friends of the Foundation Month, encouraging area citizens and businesses to donate in support of the Clear Creek Independent School District. Dine Out to Donate kicks off the month, which starts Sept. 15 and ends Oct. 16.
Other activities include an I Love CCISD video contest for teachers, the Explore CCEF program showcase during CCEF board meetings and a partnership breakfast at Lakewood Yacht Club.
