Restaurant fundraisers promote pet causes

By MICHELLE LOCKE / For The Associated Press Published: May 25, 2012

"I think we're a good match with a lot of charitable events because of the nature of our business," points out Ron Patak, vice president of student operations at Culinard, the Culinary Institute of Virginia College, which runs the Kitchen on George restaurant in Mobile, Ala.
