A portion of proceeds from guest dining at participating restaurants during this week will support critical health, education and self-sufficiency programs in the Greenwich community.
Greenwich United Way will partner with Z Hospitality (zhospitalitygroup.com) again this year during the annual Week of Caring. Z Hospitality has hosted the fundraising promotion in Greenwich since 2006 and has raised over $25,000 for the Greenwich United Way Annual Campaign.
“The Greenwich United Way is an immensely important local organization that facilitates solutions for those most in need,” said Adam Zakka, Partner at Z Hospitality. He continued, “We are honored to have the opportunity to help ensure these local human service needs are met. We are committed to ensuring we foster an environment where all citizens of Greenwich can succeed. By hosting the Week of Caring each year, we hope to make this a reality.”
Greenwich United Way is the only organization in Greenwich that identifies unmet health, education and self-sufficiency needs through comprehensive research and collective insights. The organization then raises awareness to support those critical needs through fundraising events and monthly roundtables with partner agencies. Greenwich United Way has been a trusted partner of the Greenwich community, government and local organizations since 1933. It has focused on community solutions in the areas of education, self-sufficiency, and health for over 85 years.
“The deadline to reach our Annual Campaign goal is June 30 and it’s important that we acknowledge Z Hospitality again this year for bringing us closer to reaching that goal,” said David Rabin, CEO at Greenwich United Way. He continued, “A portion of proceeds from patrons dining at Terra, Mediterraneo or EastEnd on Greenwich Avenue during the Week of Caring will help the Greenwich United Way ensure that health, education, and self-sufficiency needs are met and the vital programs that need support continue to receive funding. Those who aren’t able to dine at these great restaurants can still support our work by making a donation directly to Greenwich United Way before our Annual Campaign deadline.”

Years later, Z Hospitality has grown to include eight additional restaurants: Mediterraneo in Greenwich, Norwalk and White Plains, NY, EastEnd in Greenwich, Terra in Danbury and Greenwich, Solé in New Canaan and Aurora in Rye, New York—all of which continue to introduce sophisticated Mediterranean and Northern Italian cuisine to enthusiastic audiences.
