TAKE OUT CHALLENGE EVENT
In 2020 we were very aware that the restaurant industry was being particularly hard hit by the Covid 19 public health restrictions, and that has continued over the course of the pandemic. In addition, non-profits had to cancel, and have been unable to reschedule key fundraising events. This has severely impacted the ability to cover their operational costs and in many cases, they are struggling to fund the important work done in our community. The Canadian Progress Club Saskatoon Downtown wanted to do what they could to help.
The goal of the event is to raise funds for several local non-profits, as well as increase sales and provide valuable exposure and promotion for 12 locally-owned restaurants in Saskatoon. Each of the participating restaurants in 2021 has also committed to donating 800 meals to Saskatoon’s Friendship Inn.
Proceeds from the event will benefit several local non-profits:
- Care and Share
- Big Brother Big Sisters Saskatoon
- Help One
- Haven Kids House (formerly Saskatoon Crisis Nursery)
- Saskatoon Public Schools Foundation
- And more…
