United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore (UWLES), in partnership with the Ocean City Hotel, Motel, Restaurant Association (OCHMRA) is looking forward to welcoming back guests and visitors for the 2021 summer season! UWLES is excited to offer the Dine, Stay and Play program again this year with local hospitality organizations as they engage in a fun and fierce competition while giving back to the community and creating local impact.
Local restaurants, hotels and new this year – entertainment and sporting venues – can sign up with UWLES to participate. Each business chooses their promotional menu items, or stay and play specials, and designates a portion of those sales to UWLES to help impact 1 in 3 local neighbors, through a friendly competition for fun awards and bragging rights. All proceeds stay local for UWLES and their nonprofit partners to help neighbors who are still struggling in Worcester and other lower shore counties who are struggling.
This unique opportunity for locals and visitors to help support an industry heavily impacted from the COVID-19 pandemic, will run from Memorial Day – Labor Day. Participants benefit from free marketing such as advertising and social media campaigns where all participants are highlighted throughout the season with category leaders (based on capacity) announced monthly.
This program reinforces the resiliency and importance of this industry in our region and helps patrons know they are helping thousands of local families by supporting community minded businesses. Restaurants, lodging and entertainment businesses of any size are welcome to participate.
