Upcoming IPSF fundraiser will help diners take a bite out of the budget crunch


Like dining out? And helping Irvine schools? Have we got an event for you.

Dozens of local restaurants will once again donate a percentage of their profits to raise money for IUSD schools during the Irvine Public Schools Foundation’s second annual “iDine for Irvine” fundraiser, set to take place Feb. 15 through Feb. 19.

Last year, the event was limited to a single day, yet it still generated more than $7,000. That total will almost certainly be surpassed this time around. And, as a result of the passage of local Measure R in November, the City of Irvine will contribute one dollar for every dollar raised, effectively doubling the proceeds.
