Pasta Pane Rustic Italian Bistro was the place to gather on February 6 for local nonprofit organizations to celebrate two years of the restaurant’s Raising Dough Program as well as DZ Restaurants’ contributions of over $25,000 to their respective causes.
Collectively since 2008 DZ Restaurants, Raising Dough and other fundraising program at Chianti Il Ristorante in Saratoga Springs called TWELVE, has raised over $75,000 for nearly 60 local charities and non-profits.
“My intention with both Raising Dough and Twelve was to give back to the community and to those who support us.” Sais David Zecchini, owner of DZ Restaurants.
Those in attendance on Monday evening represented previous recipients of Raising Dough including Nicks Fight to be Healed, The Northeast Regional Food Bank, The American Cancer Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Make a Wish Foundation, I Am I Can, and The Southern Saratoga Chamber Angels Program.
