On Wednesday, you can dine out all day for a good cause.

"Winneba Wednesday" is a fundraising event put on by the Charlottesville-Winneba Sister City partnership.

Four restaurants will donate 20 percent of their proceeds to the group to help a West African artist-in-residence program and build Winneba's first modern public library.

"That's exciting.  Encouraging reading in Winneba just as Charlottesville is such a book friendly town, reading town," said Dave Norris, member of the Charlottesville-Winneba Sister City Partnership.
