Area Restaurants Become “Heroes” for the Red Cross

Restaurants throughout the area are supporting Red Cross services as part of the annual “Heroes for the American Red Cross” campaign.

On Thursday, May 19, 2011, restaurants throughout the area will donate a portion of the day’s sales, and collect customer’s financial donations to benefit American Red Cross services as part of the Dine for Disaster event. By simply eating out at participating restaurants, individuals will be making a gift to support Red Cross disaster relief and prevention.

Dine for Disaster support will provide local disaster relief and community disaster prevention program. The need has hit an all-time high as the local disaster budget was exhausted in just seven months. This was before the tornadoes hit Kaukauna, random flooding and the on-average of every other night, local chapters respond to a residential fire. The Red Cross provide a warm place to sleep, food to eat, infant supplies, can replace medication and they provide compassion and hope to all disaster victims.

Nathan and Marcia Haupt of Schreiner’s Restaurant inFond du Lac and Steve Davis of Ardy and Ed’s Drive-In in Oshkosh are spearheading Dine for Disaster with their fellow restaurateurs.

The Haupt’s recognize that the American Red Cross is always there in an emergency, and they are honored to support them on the local level. “Through Dine for Disaster, local restaurants are in a position to support the local chapter of the American Red Cross, while providing our guests with an opportunity to socialize, enjoy their favorite meal, and know they’re helping others in the process,” Nathan Haupt said. “It’s a win-win situation, with the community as a whole benefiting. We’re proud to be part a community where businesses that are thought to be competitors are always willing to work together for the greater good.”

Ardy & Ed’s Drive-In, a landmark for many in the FoxValley, is participating because it is a chance to support the work that the Red Cross does in the community. “The community has supported Ardy & Ed’s Drive-In for 63 years, and we feel it is a great way to say ‘Thank You’ to the community for their support all those years by helping give back to an organization that helps our neighbors’ right here inOshkoshwhen disaster strikes,”Davissaid.

Heroes for the American Red Cross is a grassroots campaign where local business people, school groups, church groups, civic clubs, and individuals pledge is to raise $1,000 for their local Red Cross chapter. This year, the four Red Cross chapters throughout Northeast Wisconsin’s goal is to raise $231,000 via the Heroes campaign.
