There is a lovely little Italian restaurant in Spencer, NC called Pinocchio's. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and the food is delicious. Giuseppe, the chef, is a creative force in the kitchen, and Tracy keeps everything else running smoothly. This year they will be joining Toys for Tots as a donation point. Here is what Tracy said in her weekly e-mail.
"It's going to be a particularly rough year for young families to afford Christmas shopping, so Pinocchio's is a donation point for Toys for Tots. Just write a check made payable to Toys for Tots and bring it in when you come to dinner; I will take it, match it 50 cents on the dollar through my book company, and get a whole bunch of Fun Kid Kits to our local kids. Your cancelled check is 100% tax deductible".
I hope you can join them for dinner sometime soon. You'll leave with a happy tummy and a warm fuzzy feeling, and no I don't mean from the wine either. So drop off a check, and help make Christmas for the children.
