Five Ways to Support Playworks by Going Out to Eat!

  1. Updates

The entire month of February, Playworks is taking part in a fundraising campaign to #ShareTheLoveOfPlay. Our goal is to spread awareness of our impact in New England while raising $20,000 through peer to peer fundraising and benefit nights throughout the month. If we can reach our goal, every dollar will be matched by Doris Buffet and the Letters Foundation! Support us by going out to eat at one of these 5 restaurants across the city:

1. Burgers & Milkshakes

Have Shake Shack for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner on Monday, February 4! Show this flier at the Newbury Street Shake Shack and 25% of your purchase will be donated to Playworks!


2. Pizza & Bowling at Flatbread

On Tuesday, February 5 between 4-11 p.m., Flatbread Company in Brighton will donate a portion of all pizza sales to Playworks New England! Order take-out or delivery, or join us at Flatbread Company next Tuesday for a night of great food, bowling, and supporting our programs in schools throughout New England!
