Giving Back to the Lakes Region Community
Patrick's is committed to being an active community leader and making a positive impact in the Lakes Region community. Whenever possible we will assist people and organizations in realizing their goals, from fundraising events to bone marrow drives and community meetings.
Patrick's offers a program for people and organizations who are trying to raise money for charitable purposes called the Giving Back Program. Essentially, a block of days is offered where supporters can come to Patrick's for dinner and 25% of the food purchased by the event supporters will be donated back to the sponsor. Patrick's reserves approximately 25 Giving Back events a year and annually gives back over $10,000 in donations. Contact Megan or Allan if you are interested in having one of these events.
For groups or teams, Patrick's has a limited number of gift card fundraisers to offer. Patrick's will provide gift cards to qualified groups at a 50% discount, enabling the sponsor organization to sell the gift cards to friends, relatives and colleagues at full price and keep 50% of the proceeds for their organization. Again, please contact Allan if you would like to discuss this program.
On December 6th and 7th of 2012, Patrick's hosted our 4th Pub Mania, a 24-Hour Barstool Challenge, to raise money for the LNH Children's Auction. 30 Teams and 720 'Culinary Athletes' took part in this truly special event and raised a mind-boggling $165,300!! With this contribution, the Children's Auction raised a record $416,500.
We are already preparing for our 5th Pub Mania December 12, 2013 and we are excited to play a game to beat last year's total by at least $1. Please help us reach this exciting goal! If you would like to participate on a team, click on the "Available Seats" document and contact the Team Captain of your choice.
Pub Mania is all about making a difference in our community and giving people an opportunity to participate and have fun. Team captains and participants will find documents below to assist in managing their fundraising. If you have any questions, please email Allan at email@example.com.
Check out some of the video montages of the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Pub Mania along with our theme songs "Santa Can You Hear Me" written and produced by our friend Rick Page and the Beetle-Bailey Blues Band. Most pictures are courtesy of our incredible friend Judi Taggart. If the spirit moves you and you'd like to contribute to this event, please use the Pay Pal option to the right. 100% of monies raised pass through to organizations in the Lakes Region helping children and families.
