(Oct. 3, 2014) Ten local restaurants will be participating in the second annual “Restaurants for Reading” to benefit the Worcester County Library Foundation on Tuesday, Oct. 7.
Restaurants have pledged a portion of their sales will go to the foundation, which supports the services and programs of the Worcester County Library.
The foundation has declared that all funds donated by the restaurants in Berlin will be placed in the Berlin Library Building Fund.
“Last year we did the event in May, and we decided to do the event in October to help the businesses and our cause during the shoulder season,” said Mark Thomas, Worcester County Library director.
“I actually helped them [the foundation] create the event,” said Warren Rosenfeld, owner of Rosenfeld’s Jewish Delicatessen on 63rd Street in Ocean City. His wife, Dana, was previously a librarian, and his son, Scott, is an editor for Grand Central Publishing.
“My family has always been very much focused on books and reading,” Rosenfeld said.
“We really have him to thank,” Thomas said of Rosenfeld.
Participating restaurants include, Market Street Deli in Pocomoke; Harvest Moon in Snow Hill; The Berlin Coffee House, Drummer’s Café at the Atlantic Hotel, and The Globe in Berlin; Denovo’s in Ocean Pines; Bayside Skillet, BJ’s on the Water, The Captain’s Table and Rosenfeld’s Jewish Delicatessen in Ocean City.
“We think it’s a good cause,” said Tammy Velenovsky, Harvest Moon manager. “We participated last year, and we decided to do it again.”
Harvest Moon is offering 10 percent off their customers’ checks, and donating that portion to the WCLF.
