Local non-profits are encouraged to submit an application to be considered.  Each year, applications are accepted through June 15 and then reviewed by the restaurant’s executive committee in the order applications were received, for consideration for the following program year.  At the end of July, notifications of selection and non-selection are sent out to all applying organizations. 

Then in the following January, The Signature Room at the 95th hosts the “Table for Twelve” Reception, to kick-off the yearly program and honor all upcoming, 12 non-for-profit groups. All profits from the reception go directly to the charity of the month organizations.  Thank you Rick Roman and Nick Pyknis for your socially responsible efforts!  We’ll hope you serve as inspiration to others to create sustainable venues for paying it forward in their communities.
