April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and 302 West Smokehouse and Tavern in Fryeburg has chosen as April’s “Charitable Sunday” recipient Starting Point: Services for Victims of Domestic & Sexual Violence. The restaurant will donate 10% of all food sales on Sundays in April to the non-profit. 302 West opens at 9:00AM on Sundays for brunch and stays open all day, closing at 10:00PM.
Starting Point is gearing up for its annual Boots ‘n Bling western themed dinner/dance/auction fundraiser on May 21, and staff and board members will be on site at 302 West Sundays in April with Starting Point literature, raffle tickets, and promotions for Boots ‘n Bling. During this countdown to Boots ‘n Bling, Starting Point is very excited to be raffling off a Stone Mountain Arts Center “SMAC 6-Pack” consisting of any six shows priced at $50 or less with no handling fees, plus six dinners. This package has an estimated value of $250. Raffle tickets are $5 apiece, or five for $20. Tickets are available at 302 West or via the Starting Point website’s donations page at startingpointnh.org. The drawing will be at the end of the month.
