Blackfinn Ameripub Restaurants Combine for Close to $14,000 Donation
Blackfinn Ameripub, a whole new generation of the classic American Pub, is excited to announce that 10 of the concept’s restaurants raised a total of $13,977.18 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America during the Second Annual “Summer Fest @ The Finn.” Funds raised during the July-August promotion will be donated to local Big Brothers Big Sisters affiliates in each of the restaurants’ markets.
Blackfinn Ameripub’s “Summer Fest @ the Finn” was designed to celebrate food, drink and all things summer, while supporting a very worthy cause in Big Brothers Big Sisters, which is one of the oldest and largest non-profit youth mentoring organizations in the United States.
“We are grateful for this promotion and the support from Blackfinn Ameripub customers,” said Pam Iorio, president and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. “These funds will help the national office support affiliates across the country and will directly help our local affiliates near these restaurants create more mentor matches.”
In addition to accepting guest donations, the “Summer Fest @ the Finn” promotion featured a special six-item summer-inspired menu, where $1 from each item sold was donated to the non-profit, including four food items and two cocktails.
