Sad to say, but we can't believe we're already wrapping up our sophomore year of Food For Tots. It has been a year that has seen our Food For Tots program grow financially, as well as geographically.

Food For Tots is a very easy way for families on the SouthCoast to support the effort to bring Boston Children's Hospital doctors down here to treat our kids. It's no exaggeration to rank Boston Children's among the very best hospitals in the entire world, and Food For Tots helps our kids receive that level of treatment right here on the SouthCoast.

If you would like to help, just go out to eat at any of these restaurants in Westport or Tiverton this coming Thursday. You don't have to show anything or say anything, and 15 percent of your bill will automatically be donated to Food For Tots.

Here are the participating restaurants:

The best news is that local businesses like Prestige Automart, Avalon Medical Spa, and The Farland Corp have each agreed to match our restaurants' donations. Essentially, this means that you choosing to go out to each at each of these restaurants on Thursday will directly result in 30 percent of your bill being donated to Food For Tots.

Fun 107's Food For Tots is a part of the Friends of Jack Foundation, a SouthCoast charity that is dedicated to the physical and mental health and emotional well-being of children in crises in the greater SouthCoast region.

The Friends of Jack will be hosting a black-tie optional gala on September 21st. For tickets, visit FriendsofJack.org.
