TRI-CITIES, Wash.- Now that we have finally entered Phase 2, many of us are excited to finally go out (and stay out) to eat. Fifteen restaurants have teamed up to use this great step forward to help out those in need.

The United Way of Benton and Franklin Counties has teamed up with Fifteen restaurants in a week long event to help struggling families in the community.

When you dine at any of these select restaurants between March 1-7, a portion of the money will be donated to United Way. United Way is dedicated to solving the region's biggest problems and creating lasting change.
