Wichita Restaurant Week is back for ten delectable days for the community to eat, drink and give back. Building off an incredible first year, Wichita Restaurant Week is Oct. 10-19 with a variety of dining experiences for local foodies to savor.

“Restaurant Week is a perfect opportunity to get out and try a new restaurant or return to one of your favorite spots and enjoy a great meal while supporting a worthy community cause,” said Go Wichita President and CEO Susie Santo.

When patrons select items from the special Restaurant Week menu, 10 percent of sales will be donated to Boys and Girls Clubs of South Central Kansas. The Restaurant Week menu will vary at each restaurant with a price point of $10, $20 or $40. Many restaurants are creating all new dishes to highlight during this 10-day event. A complete list of participating restaurants can be found at www.WichitaRestaurantWeek.com.

“Boys and Girls Club will use this fundraiser as an opportunity to continue our mission to build the community’s next generation of leaders,” said Juston White, Boys and Girls Clubs of South Central Kansas Professional Officer. “We are truly honored to be the benefactors of the community’s generosity.”
