DINE-OUT TO SUPPORT DISASTER RELIEF

Eastern Wisconsin Red Cross, Dine for Disaster Event Banner

Local Restaurants & Patrons Pair Taste-buds and Disaster Relief Together

Now in its sixth year, more than 100 participating eateries will participate in Dine for Disaster throughout Eastern Wisconsin, from the Illinois border, to Upper Peninsula Michigan communities. On Thursday, May 16, 2013, participants will donate a portion of sales to benefit their local American Red Cross disaster relief and community disaster prevention & education.

While the Red Cross responds to big disasters such as floods, hurricanes, and tornadoes each year, the most frequent threat people face is a fire in their own home. In fact, Disaster Action Team workers respond to an emergency every nine minutes around the United States. Locally, it was nearly 500 last year!

Just this past weekend, it was seven fire calls!  Red Cross responders turn compassion into action. They form a dynamic team that is empowered to deal with crises throughout our communities. When a disaster strikes, we provide a place to sleep, warm meals, clothing, emotional support and hope. Through the support of our communities, we can offer individuals and families basic emergency needs to recovery guidance.

Dave Jones, Director of Operations for McDonald’s in Racine and Pat Beimborn, co-owner of Los Banditos in Green Bay are co-chairing Dine for Disaster 2013. Both have a personal reason for supporting the organization. WI.  “Many years ago, my family had an emergency.” Dave Jones continued, “The Red Cross was there for me when I needed it and now I will always try to be there to help the Red Cross when I can.” During college Beimborn started donating blood and was later on the volunteer Board of Directors. He had a front-row seat to the depth of commitment and passion the staff and volunteers have for the mission. “They set an example for the spirit of caring for others, most of whom they will never know, that is so much a part of the culture of this area. Whether it’s a fire, a blood drive or a natural disaster, Red Cross volunteers are always ready and willing to lend a helping hand. Those volunteers aren’t looking for recognition. They just seem to know that it’s the right thing to do and they’re glad to do it.”  Beimborn continued, “…and for local restaurants to recognize their commitment to the community is a natural fit.”

For the third year, Society Insurance is the corporate sponsor for Dine for Disaster. Their financial support provides promotional materials for the participants.

Local restaurant owners participate in ‘Dine for Disaster’

By: Erin Davisson WFRV-TV 5

Green Bay, WI–(WFRV)– Dozens of local restaurant owners participated Thursday in the Dine for Disaster program. More than 170 participating restaurants will donate a portion of the May 17th sales, and collect customer’s financial donations to benefit local disaster relief and community disaster prevention efforts of the American Red Cross.

 While the Red Cross responds to big disasters such as floods, hurricane, tornadoes each year, but the most frequent threat people face is a fire in their own home! Last year, Chapters responded to nearly 63,000 fires. That’s one every eight minutes! In each case, we meet with the victims and assess their needs – often while still standing on the street while their home burns or smolders in smoke. Based on their needs, we provide a warm place to sleep, food to eat, infant supplies, we can replace medications, glasses, etc and we provide compassion, a recovery plan and hope to all disaster victims.

Nathan and Marcia Haupt of Schreiner’s Restaurant in Fond du Lac and Pat Beimborn of Los Banditos Restaurants in Green Bay are spearheading Dine for Disaster with their fellow restaurateurs.

The Haupts’ and Beimborns’ recognize 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 tosupport the local Red Cross Chapter,while providing our guests withan opportunity to socialize,enjoytheir 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.”

Beimborn agrees and is participating because it is a chance to support the work that the Red Cross does in the community. “We at Los Banditos feel it is a great way to say ‘Thank You’ to the community for their support by helping give back to an organization like the Red Cross that helps our neighbors’ right here in Green Bay and throughout Northeast Wisconsin when disaster strikes.”

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.
