(WBIR) Tonight's the night to hit the town. Not only would you get a delicious meal, but you'd also help Knox County Schools.

On Tuesday nearly 40 area restaurants with close to 80 locations throughout Knox County will donate 10 percent of their proceeds from the day to Knox County Schools. Participating restaurants will display the "Dine Out for Education" logo.

Proceeds from "Dine Out for Education" support Partners in Education programs, such as the annual Knox County Schools Career Day, Teacher Supply Depot, Schooled for Success, Barney Thompson Scholarships and teacher recognition programs.
