Published 3:34 pm Tuesday, November 17, 2015

To celebrate the beginning of the season of giving, Wintzell’s Oyster House locations throughout the State of Alabama will host the inaugural “Week of Giving.”

Funds raised at each event will stay in the communities where they are raised.

“We challenged team members at each Wintzell’s location to select a charity of their choice, develop a “Week of Giving” plan and we would support their efforts,” said Wintzell’s owner Buffy Donlon. “We are overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and the creative ideas presented by all of the Wintzell’s restaurant teams and look forward to this week-long celebration.”
