Fries Fund Research and Fuel Rides

In our increasingly calorie-conscious society, it's becoming more difficult to justify dietary indulgences like French fries. Being something of an expert at rationalization, I don't usually have a problem with that sort of thing, but I love an opportunity to take advantage of a built-in rationale.

Several months ago, Boise Fry Company hosted a non-profit evening, during which 20 percent of their proceeds for the night were donated to the National MS Society as part of a project initiated by CBH Homes. Tonight from 6-9 p.m., Boise Fry Co. is back at it, this time in support of Idaho Bike MS: Road, Sweat and Gears, which is a two-day bicycle tour in and around beautiful McCall, Idaho, that takes place on August 21 and 22. Participants form teams and collect pledges to raise money for research to treat and cure multiple sclerosis.

It's not too late to sign up for the ride and collect pledges, but if that sounds like too much work, you can still get involved simply by eating at Boise Fry Company tonight. Think of it as an opportunity to eat some sweet-potato fries, scantily clad in only the finest peanut oil and salt, in the name of a good cause. Come on, take one for the team.
