The Waxahachie Downtown Merchants Association is selling a $10 specialty card for up to $50 worth of savings to eat downtown. By purchasing a Downtown Dine Around card, proceeds will go toward benefiting Waxahachie CARE.

Melissa Chapman, marketing chair for the Waxahachie Downtown Merchants Association, said, "The Waxahachie Downtown Merchants selected Waxahachie CARE to benefit from this fun event because it seemed like a natural fit to encourage people to dine out downtown and help feed the hungry in our community at the same time.”

Chapman also mentioned there have been six new restaurants that have opened over the past year in downtown. She encourages those to take advantage of the card to see what’s new.

For the entire month of February, cardholders can enjoy exclusive specials and discounts at 13 participating local restaurants.

The card is good for one use each restaurant. For those who visit all 13 locations, will have the chance to be entered into a drawing to win two free VIP passes to the Crossroads of Texas Film and Music Festival on April 19 —21.

"We are proud to say that 100% of the proceeds from sales of the Downtown Dine Around Card will benefit Waxahachie Care,” Chapman expressed. “We encourage people to participate in the Downtown Dine Around in order to make a difference in our community. Just by the simple gesture of going out for dinner with your family and friends, you're in turn donating and helping out people in our community who are food insecure every day."

The Downtown Dine Around card is $10 and available for purchase at each participating restaurant.
