Small ways to make a big difference for nonprofits

Have a three-course dinner and donate to the North Texas Food Bank. Two Oak Cliff restaurants are offering DFW Restaurant Week menus this month. Hattie’s and Tillman’s, both in the Bishop Arts District, will participate in restaurant week, which allows diners to have a three-course prix-fixe dinner. The restaurant then donates 20 percent of the price of each meal to Oak Cliff-based North Texas Food Bank or Lena Pope Home in Fort Worth. Last year the event raised a total of $760,000 for those charities. Restaurant “week” at Hattie’s is Aug. 12-25. The menu costs $45 per person. Call for reservations, 214.942.7400. Tillman’s participates Aug. 12-18. Call 214.942.0988 for reservations. The Tillman’s menu costs $35 per person.

Go bowling and help “strike out youth homelessness” with Oak Cliff-based Promise House. The nonprofit’s Bowl-a-Rama Extravaganza is from 3-5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11 at Bowl & Barrel, 8084 Park Lane. Register a team of up to eight players for $500 or enter as a single bowler for $75. Promise House also hosts a beach volleyball tournament fundraiser Aug. 24 at Yucatan Beach Club in Coppell. Register teams of four or six for $25 per player. Each player receives a T-shirt and two beverage coupons. Register for bowling or volleyball online or by calling 214.941.8578.
