2022 ENS AUTO Celebrity Challenge – Restaurant Partners
The goal of the Progress Club – Saskatoon Downtown Celebrity Challenge Event is to raise funds for several local non-profits and increase sales and provide valuable local exposure and promotion for 10 wonderful locally-owned restaurants in Saskatoon. Each of the participating restaurants in 2022 has also committed to donating 500 meals to Saskatoon’s Friendship Inn.
The Ten 2022 Restaurant Partners
We are proud to have a diverse list of 10 restaurant partners to choose from in 2022. From Persian to pizza, ribs to amazing baking we have your taste buds covered in every area! Some of the restaurants are long-time family favourites in Saskatoon, others are newer restaurants and cafes offering unique, delicious and exotic options! What they all share is a commitment to quality-driven service and high standards of cooking and most importantly, they are all locally-owned and invested in our community. We are so grateful that they have stepped up to SERVE us all!
