Ambassadors for Children - cash for kids happening now!
May 20, 2017
Springfield, MO – This May marks the 4th year Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar® partners with Ambassadors for Children, supporting local foster families, in the Big Whiskey’s annual restaurant fundraising event.
Ambassadors for Children serves children in the foster care system for Greene, Christian, and Taney Counties, in an effort to end child abuse. Big Whiskey’s has always been a huge community supporter, and this is one of their most noteworthy charity events.
“Community is important to us,” said Paul Sundy, Big Whiskey’s COO, “and Ambassadors for Children is near and dear to our hearts.”
Every May, each of the Big Whiskey’s corporate owned locations hosts an array of activities to raise funds. The fundraising includes contests, special events, and an employee fundraising drive. Locations include three Springfield restaurants, and restaurants in Ozark and Branson.
Cut outs in the shape of Missouri will display the names of each person who makes a donation at the various locations. Last year’s efforts resulted in an incredible $5000 donation to the Ambassadors for Children. This year each Big Whiskey’s store will be setting their own unique fundraising goals – with the hopes of once again reaching out to donate another $5000!
Donations help supplement the limited income fosters families receive from the state, a cause-related subsidiary of the Council of Churches of the Ozarks. A variety of programs provide assistance with new clothing, comfort bags, blankets, tutoring, beds, and self-esteem boosting activities. There are presently over 1000 children in foster care in the Greene, Christian, and Taney Counties.
To be part of this great cause and to show your support visit your nearest Big Whiskey’s location. Springfield restaurant locations include; Downtown, Republic road, and Battlefield road. In addition, Big Whiskey’s be found in Branson and Ozark. Every donation makes a difference!
