In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, Rusty Bucket Restaurant & Tavern, including its newest venue located at CityPlace Doral, donated all profits generated on Sept. 18 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
Rusty Bucket, in partnership with sister company Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, hosted the one-day fundraiser to support people affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma – with the goal of donating together more than $150,000. The funds raised are providing food, shelter, and other emergency supplies to victims of both hurricanes.
“The devastation Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have caused is horrific,” said Gary Callicoat, president of Rusty Bucket Restaurant & Tavern. “It was important to our associates to come together and find a way to help. This donation to the American Red Cross allowed us to provide support to Texas, Florida, and other affected areas as they recover from these events and work to rebuild their communities.”
In addition to donating profits from sales, each restaurant also encouraged guests to make donations. On Sept. 18, for every $50 donation made to the American Red Cross at Rusty Bucket locations, the company provided guests with a $10 promotional gift card valid toward any food purchases on their next visit.
