LACONIA — T-BONES Great American Eatery and Cactus Jack's held its largest ever Thanks for Giving fundraiser to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs in New Hampshire raising $25,355. Each year, the NH based restaurant group chooses a local state-wide non-profit organization to be the recipient of its four week long fundraising promotion. Guests were given the opportunity to donate $5 and receive $5 off their next visit in return, when dining at any T-BONES or Cactus Jack's location. This year's fundraiser took place Monday, October 21 through Sunday, November 17.
The Boys & Girls Clubs in New Hampshire is a collaboration of nine independent Boys & Girls Clubs serving over 19,000 youth annually in New Hampshire. The clubs are headquartered in Concord, Derry, Lakes Region (Laconia), Manchester, Nashua, North Country, Portsmouth, Salem and Souhegan Valley (Milford). They enable young people, especially those who need them most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Boys & Girls Clubs in New Hampshire have been serving NH youth for over 100 years.
Tanya Untiet, T-BONES and Cactus Jack's Community Outreach Coordinator, said "This is our 9th year running our Thanks for Giving fundraiser and it was our most successful fundraiser to date. The Boys & Girls Clubs in New Hampshire are such a well deserving group and we couldn't be more excited. The support of our patrons truly made this a successful event."
