The Eis House to host United Way fundraiser

United Way Resource Development Director Lexie Wallace (left) recently met with Dustin Trimble (right), general manager at the Eis House, to discuss plans for Dining with a Purpose, a night where 10 percent of sales will be donated to the United Way of Greater Oswego County.

FULTON – Enjoy fresh seafood, build your own burger, or simply relax with a cool beverage at the Eis House on Wednesday, July 17, and know that 10 percent of your bill will be helping to create a brighter future in Oswego County.

The gourmet restaurant located at 144 Academy St. in Mexico, New York, has chosen to host a night of giving back to support the United Way of Greater Oswego County, which works to end hunger, build successful youth and ensure wellness across the county.

“We are so thankful the Eis House has chosen to host this event,” United Way resource development director Lexie Wallace said. “Our mission would not be possible without support from community champions in every corner of our county.”

Wallace said along with raising funds to support programs facing the pressing needs of Oswego County residents, she hopes the Eis House event will also give the public a better idea of the reach the local United Way has in the area.

“While we do support several programs housed in Oswego and Fulton, the reach of our funding and 20 partner agencies is truly countywide,” Wallace said. “We are grateful for the chance to have an event in Mexico that will help spread the word about our work and the impact of the more than 30 programs receiving United Way support in our county.”

Dining with a Purpose will take place on Wednesday, July 17, during normal Eis House business hours. Patrons simply have to enjoy the restaurant’s extensive menu and 10 percent of sales will be donated to the United Way.
