JP Restaurants Raising $$ for Immigrant Rights During Dining for a Difference Week

Diners in Jamaica Plain have a chance to donate to a great cause while enjoying meals at six fabulous local restaurants during Dining for a Difference Week from November 4 to 9. The fundraiser will support national immigrant rights group Kids in Need of Defense, which in recent months has been working tirelessly on behalf of migrant children separated from their parents. During Dining for a Difference Week, local restaurants Tres Gatos, The Haven, Casa Verde, The Frogmore, Vee Vee and Little Dipper will each donate a portion of proceeds from a night of business. The event is the fifth organized by Boston For All, a grassroots group of local parents inspired by the 2016 election to raise money for civil liberties and civil rights organizations. Thus far, Boston for All has raised more than $25,000 through fun, family-friendly events.
