2022 Celebrity Challenge – Team Montanas

2022 Celebrity CHALLENGE

The ENS AUTO 2022 Celebrity Challenge Event partners ten locally-owned restaurants and 20 local celebrities, to raise funds for numerous local non-profits, as well as increase sales and provide valuable local exposure for the restaurant partners. The restaurant partners have also each committed to providing 500 meals to the Friendship Inn over the course of the next 12 months.


Celebrity Take Out Challenge is an annual event where 2 local celebrities are teamed with a local restaurant partner. Each celebrity team will do their best to promote their restaurant and raise as much money as possible with gift card sales for their restaurant partner. The restaurants are graciously donating a minimum of 15% of all gift cards sold!

After the July long weekend you have an option to pick up you gift certificates at 2 locations: Al Anderson Sports or Lucky Bastard Distillery.

Alternatively we can also deliver your gift cards to your home or office.

At the end of the event, the winning team is the one who has sold the most gift cards and increased the Facebook & Instagram fans/followers  of their restaurant partners the most over the challenge period – June 3rd – June 24th.
