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 35% discount, enabling the sponsor organization to sell the gift cards to friends, relatives and colleagues at full price and keep 35% of the proceeds for their organization. Again, please contact Allan if you would like to discuss this program.
On December 10th and 11th of 2015, Patrick's hosted the 7th Pub Mania, a 24-Hour Barstool Challenge, to raise money for the Children's Auction. 30 Teams and 720 'Culinary Athletes' took part in this truly special event and raised a mind-boggling $240,195!! With this contribution, Pub Mania has raised a cumulative total of over $1,037,000 in the last 7 years for the kids and families in the greater Lakes Region area.
The 30 Pub Mania teams are gearing up for the 8th Pub Mania on December 8th and 9th of 2016 and we are excited to play the 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, email Allan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pub Mania is all about making a difference in our community and giving people an opportunity to participate and have fun in that process. 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 any or all of the video montages of the past events along with our theme songs "Pub Maniacs Answer the Call" by the Beetle Bailey Blues Band and "Santa Can You Hear Me" written and produced by our friend Rick Page. The 2015 video features "Lean on Me" written by Bill Withers with this version produced by the Playing for Change Foundation. Most pictures are courtesy of our friends Judi Taggart and Lisa Abreu. 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.
