Eating The Way To A New Wing

August 11, 2008

We’re turning 100 next year – and we’ve launched an $85 million capital campaign that will help us fulfill our mission – the advancement of the general knowledge of natural science – throughout our second century. Among many goals, the funds will be used to expand our exhibition halls, including the creation of a new Hall of Paleontology, designed to be one of the most dramatic and comprehensive in the world. Today, Nicole fills us in on one of the easy ways you can support this mission, just by eating out.

Katz’s Deli on Westheimer – just off Montrose – has given the Museum the “Benefit Table” for the month of August.  What does that mean?

The benefit table is a special table for parties of 6 or more who come to nosh at Katz’s. Ten percent of your bill at the end of the meal (not including tax) is donated to the cause of the month and, for August, the Museum’s capital campaign has been selected as the cause.   

Eat delicious goodness and support your favorite Museum at the same time.  (I reccomend the rueben and Dave likes the fried pickels and bortsch.)

All you need to do is eat, pay, and repeat if you are seated at the benefit table.  IF THE TABLE IS ALREADY TAKEN, alert your server that you wanted to sit there and that you would like a portion of your bill donated to the Museum and that should take care of it.  What could be easier?

We will see you there.
