Big Whiskey’s Wraps Fundraiser, Contributing $10,000 To Convoy Of Hope

Missouri Restaurant Big Whiskey’s, Raises $10,000 For International Organization Convoy Of Hope

December 04, 2017 // Franchising.com // Following over a month of fundraising efforts in the aftermath of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Missouri-based Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar® has raised $10,000 for Convoy of Hope and their continued relief efforts.

In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, and just off the heels of Thanksgiving weekend, Big Whiskey’s has a lot to be thankful for. “We are blown away by the support of our loyal customers across all our locations for this campaign,” states Big Whiskey’s Vice President of Operations, Matt Caetano. “Our staff got behind this effort from day one, and it’s awesome that we were able to raise awareness and much needed funding for Convoy of Hope.”

Big Whiskey’s has always had a commitment to partnering with community organizations aimed at making a positive impact. Also based in Springfield, Missouri, Convoy of Hope continues to work tirelessly to provide essential emergency supplies, and food and water to children and families impacted by the natural disasters this fall. Because of Convoy’s international footprint, the fundraising campaign allowed Big Whiskey’s to make a big impact well beyond their home base in Springfield. In 2016, the Convoy of Hope Disaster Services team served over 900,000 victims of natural disasters, providing more than 7 million meals.

Eric Neubauer with Convoy of Hope points out, “The media coverage has settled on these tragedies, but the relief efforts and rebuilding will continue for years to come. We are beyond thankful for the support of Big Whiskey’s and the community to help us continue serving these families.”

‘Tis The Season For Giving, All Year Long

Big Whiskey’s has contributed almost $20,000 to various community organizations, just in 2017 alone. In light of the season of giving, the company will once again host their annual Pancakes with Santa Breakfast on Saturday, December 9th at their Ozark and Republic, Missouri, locations, and the Battlefield Road location in Springfield. The holiday breakfast is free for guests, but encourages donations to Ambassadors for Children to aid in providing Christmas gifts for children currently in the foster care system. Big Whiskey’s aims to expand their charitable partnerships in 2018 and continue to support a variety of community causes, both in cities they serve and beyond.
