Dine and Fly to raise funds for Haiti

Hot air ballooning and local restaurants might seem like an odd combo, but they are offered as part of this online effort to raise funds for an orphanage in Boucan, Haiti.
While some businesses are hosting benefit parties, others are donating a portion of their proceeds during certain happy hours. Dine and Fly is raising money for charity through the sale of gift cards to restaurants. Participating restaurants include Cafe Latte, St. Paul Grill, Ike's Food and Cocktails, Spill the Wine, Pazzaluna, and Seven. Other gifts up feature a hotel package at the Afton House Inn and a ride in a hot air balloon.
Gift certificates come in $25 and $50 amounts (depending on location). For more info, and to check out what's available, visit www.dineandflyforhaiti.com. The group's goal is to raise $50,000 with all proceeds benefiting the cause.
