'Dine Out' meets, exceeds goal

"[North Country Life Flight] is important to us," said Brockway, crediting the United Way for helping the organization. "That's why I'm really glad we were asked to participate. Hopefully, next year it will get bigger and bigger."

Laurie LaPointe, manager of Mainely Lobster and Seafood in Plattsburgh, said her business saw a good turnout for the event, with people eager to do their part by simply dining out.

"We ended up with at least 20 to 25 people that went here just for the United Way," said LaPointe. "We had many different people come here just for [the event]."

The Plattsburgh business ended up presenting the United Way with a flat donation of $100, which amounted to approximately 8 percent of Mainely Lobster's sales that day, said LaPointe.

"We enjoyed it and getting their name out there for them," she said. "It's a great organization because they help a lot of different organizations."

When a final total is completed, proceeds will be divided among the more than 35 organizations United Way provides funding for in Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties.
