Visit Orlando has just announced that it succeeded in raising $289,291 this year with its annual Magical Dining initiative.
Visit Orlando’s annual celebration of Central Florida restaurants, Magical Dining, launched on August 27 and was meant to run through October 3 but was magically extended through October 17.
The annual initiative highlights local restaurants by signing them up to share special three-course prix-fixe meals that cost only $37 per person. This year’s event had more than 80 participating restaurants that donated $1 from each meal purchased to this year’s charities.
Funds raised this year were donated to Pathlight Home and iDignity, both of which serve local homeless and low-income individuals and families.
