12th Annual Dine to Be Kind

March 10th, 2015  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner & Take-out

In its 12th year, Dine to Be Kind is one of the best-attended and actively supported events in the area. Thousands will dine out at participating area restaurants on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 to save the lives of local animals. Each partnering restaurant, coffee shop and bar & grill will donate 15% of their sales (including take-out and bar sales) to help Asheville Humane Society make Buncombe County a no-kill community! The more you dine out or order in, the sooner we'll get there.

Volunteers Needed 

Dine to Be Kind wouldn't be possible without the help of our generous Restaurant Ambassadors. We are looking for enthusiastic and outgoing individuals with a passion for animal welfare in our community. Last year the event raised nearly $30,000 and almost one-third of the funds are a direct result of amazing Restaurant Ambassadors! 

Being an Ambassador is a great way to rally support for Buncombe County's neediest animals and an even better way to reconnect with friends, coworkers, family, and business associates.  Ambassadors promote their restaurant to everyone they know with the goal of filling the restaurant! 

Ambassadors are needed for morning, lunch and dinner shifts: 8am - 11am for breakfast, 11am - 2pm for lunch, and 5:30pm - 8:30pm for dinner. Our large variety of restaurants includes locations in Asheville, Weaverville, Black Mountain, Swannanoa, Arden and Fairview. 

Ambassadors are the face of Asheville Humane Society. During each shift, volunteers help by:

  • Greeting diners and giving a brief intro on Dine to Be Kind
  • Handing out donation envelopes and literature
  • Thanking diners for supporting Dine to Be Kind
  • Collecting donation envelopes 

We will be holding training sessions to ensure each volunteer has an awesome Dine to Be Kind experience. Contact our Director of Community Programs, Heather Brannan at: volunteer@ashevillehumane.org if you would like to be a part of our team, have fun, and, most importantly, help animals in your community!
