Richard Childress Racing pit crew members are braving the rainy cold weather without food or shelter to raise money and awareness for child hunger in North Carolina.

It’s called “Pit Stops for Poverty.”

Event organizer Ray Wright, who works in the Sprint Cup Series of NASCAR, says it allows him and the crew to put themselves in the shoes of children who are less fortunate and don’t always have access to a nice meal.

More than 30 Pit crew members set up camp near the RCR Complex in Welcome, North Carolina, Thursday at 5 p.m. and will go 24-hours without food or shelter.

Cash and food donations benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina.

You can donate online here: http://www.pitstopsforpoverty.com or stop by the RCR Complex at 236 Industrial Drive in Welcome, where the pit crew will be until 5 p.m. Friday.

Big Eat Tuesdays

The Big Eat Has Returned.  Join us in Downtown Winston-Salem, January: 7,14, 21, 28.
Back for its sixth year, the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership and participating downtown restaurants are proud to present the return of “The Big Eat.” Every Tuesday night, beginning January 7 until January 28, more than 30 great downtown restaurants will offer 50 percent discounts off of their signature dishes.

There has been such a positive response to the Big Eat promotion since its inception 2009, that it was a no-brainer to bring back the event in 2014. The Downtown Partnership received numerous e-mails and phone calls from people who participated in the last five years and who were asking to bring it back for 2014.
A list of participating downtown establishments as well as the signature dish for each Tuesday can be found at http://www.dwsp.org/bigeat.htm
