Astor Announces 3rd Dine Out Event for Mental Health Awareness Month

Several restaurants throughout the Hudson Valley region have enthusiastically signed on for Astor Services’ 3rd annual Dine Out for Mental Health, during May, Mental Health Awareness Month. Restaurants in the Hudson Valley will donate a portion of their proceeds to support Astor and the mental/behavioral services the nonprofit organization provides to more than 10,000 children and families throughout the Hudson Valley and the Bronx.

According to Sonia Barnes-Moorhead, executive vice president The Children’s Foundation of Astor, “Dine Out was created in 2021 to help restaurant owners and small businesses who suffered from the economic impact during the shutdown get diners out again for a good cause. It was a great way to draw attention to the mental health crisis in our communities, and to get friends together to show their commitment to local businesses while garnering much-needed resources for our children and families.”

This year, the month-long event will include many return participants from last year, along with some familiar and new restaurants in the lineup. Money raised by participating restaurants will help Astor ensure that every child has the opportunity to meet life’s challenges, pursue their dreams, and reach their full potential.
