Light City teams up with restaurants, hotels to benefit United Way

Baltimore's Light City has partnered with United Way of Central Maryland to invite festivalgoers to give back to the city.

Throughout the free illuminated art festival, which runs through Saturday, certain restaurants will donate $1 from every sale of Light City's official cocktail, the Golden Hour, to the United Way. Restaurants that are serving the sweet-and-sour drink include Azumi, Loch Bar, Salt Tavern, Ouzo Bay and more. 

In addition, a handful of downtown hotels — including Courtyard by Marriott, Holiday Inn Express and Holiday Inn Inner Harbor, and Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel — will donate $1 for every occupied room Friday and Saturday.

Attendees will also have the chance to contribute to the United Way, which provides aid to homeless individuals across the Baltimore region, by dining at United Way Cafe. Baltimore Convention Center caterer Centerplate will serve crabcakes, short ribs and Salisbury steak at the convention center from 11 a.m. to noon on Thursday, and will donate $4 from each $10 ticket sold, according to the Visit Baltimore website.
