Reservations are now open for the 25th annual DFW Restaurant Week, where participating eateries donate a percentage of profits to a Fort Worth charity.

In total, 23 restaurants are participating in the North Texas culinary event. DFW Restaurant Week is the second longest extravaganza of its kind, only behind New York City, according to event organizers.

Participating restaurants will donate back 20% of each meal to Lena Pope, a Fort Worth-based nonprofit that serves children and families. The nonprofit offer’s prevention and early intervention services that support childhood development and improve behavioral and mental health.

More than $2.7 million has been raised for Lena Pope since the first event in 1998. This year’s participants will offer three-course fixed-price dinners for $39 or $49, with some also offering two-course lunch or brunch menus for $24 or $29.
