Dish ‘n Dat’s 5th annual Tip a Volunteer Firefighter/EMT raised $1,500.00 for the Town of Canton Volunteer Fire & EMS Department – a record amount for the annual event. Since 2010, Dish ‘n Dat has raised $5,500.00 for Canton’s volunteer Fire/EMS service.
Canton’s volunteer firefighters spent the day assisting Dish ‘n Dat’s professional wait staff – busing tables, delivering food and assisting behind the bar. In addition, they offered tours of Ladder 2, Engine 4 and Canton’s Ambulance. Dish ‘n Dat donated 10% of their customer’s individual tabs, with a special coupon that firefighters distributed through social media and around town. Customers added their own donations into bunker boots set around the restaurant and at fire apparatus.
Richard Hutchings; Canton Volunteer Fire & EMS Chief: “We are so fortunate to have partners in the community like Dish ‘n Dat. Dan Keller and his team demonstrated the professionalism, friendliness and generosity that we have all come to expect as both patrons of this terrific restaurant and again this year, as its wait staff-apprentices.”

General Manager: Kim Marchione: “We are so pleased to be part of the Canton community and honored to help raise money for such a great organization.“
