Here’s your excuse for a mid-week pick-me-up — Dine Out For Kids® on June 20

Communities In Schools’ mission is to “surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.” They make a huge difference in the lives of Charlotte-Mecklenburg students and families, and many of the best restaurants in town have rallied to support them.
