Being a good neighbor and good citizen is important to me and as the managing partner of a popular, respected restaurant, I am happy to lend a hand to local dedicated, caring and hard-working organizations.

That’s why I’ve begun a tradition of donating a portion of proceeds each month to a local nonprofit (or a couple of them) working to help fellow Milwaukeeans in need. 

So that the donations can have a wide-ranging effect, I’ve tried to include a variety of organizations working in many different sectors, from meal programs for the hungry to animal welfare to veterans organizations to groups offering services to the homeless and to women and families in need.

The organizations this year include Capuchin Community Services (St. Ben’s), Broadscope and Milwaukee Center for Independence, Our Next Generation, Sal’s/Denoon Recovery and East Side Alano Club, Rescue Mission’s Joy House & Safe Harbor Programs, Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative and Dryhootch, Sojourner Milwaukee, Milwaukee County Historical Society, Wisconsin Humane Society & MADACC, Hunger Task Force, Street Angels MKE and first responders/law enforcement appreciation.

Form one good citizen to another I thank our loyal customers who help us aid these important organizations lending a hand in Milwaukee.
