Eat or drink at Slash Run today, help a cancer research charity!

Here's a great way to help cancer research, and all you have to do is eat or drink at Slash Run! Local resident Brittany Kademian has organized a fundraiser at the Petworth restaurant for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, a research and treatment nonprofit.

The deal is simple: go today between 5pm and midnight and they'll donate 15% of all proceeds. Today is also trivia night there starting at 9!

If you haven't been, Slash Run at 201 Upshur Street NW is great. It's run by the same folks who have El Chucho and the coming soon Little Coco's, and specializes in awesome burgers and whiskey. They also have really good schnitzel sandwiches and a killer jukebox. Drink whiskey, eat burgers, help charity? I can get behind that.

Slash Run worth a visit, and what better time than today?

Here's more from Brittany about the fundraiser.
Dana-Farber is a world leader in cancer research and treatment, renowned for using its discoveries to improve the treatment of adults and children with cancer. It is the founding member of the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. It is also a federally designated Center for AIDS Research and a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is the only cancer center in the country ranked in the top 4 for both adult and pediatric cancer programs.

I am doing this fundraiser with Slash Run because I am running the Boston Marathon this April to help raise money for this cause through the “Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge” program. My personal goal is to raise $10,000 for Dana-Farber in honor and memory of loved ones with cancer, and also to help with cancer research and cancer care for those that need it most.

Thanks again for posting this, Andrew! We all had a great time, and ended up raising $330 for our charity (which is pretty awesome, considering all I had to do was get friends and neighbors to show up and eat)
