Springfield, MO (RestaurantNews.com) In the midst of massive flooding affecting the Midwest including areas in Missouri, Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar looks to give back, supporting relief efforts through Convoy of Hope.
“We preach this a lot, but a community first mentality is truly part of our mission and something we strive to commit to throughout the year. Several members of our Big Whiskey’s family are feeling a direct impact of the flooding happening in Missouri and Nebraska through their friends and family. We knew we wanted to help in some way,” states Big Whiskey’s director of marketing, Laura Head Elliott.
To put things in perspective, the National Weather Service Kansas City Twitter account posted, “The Missouri River is currently discharging at a rate of 315 thousand cubic feet per second in Rulo, NE (near Craig, MO). If those numbers don’t mean much to you…that’s enough water to fill Arrowhead Stadium in under 9 minutes.”
Big Whiskey’s will host four Community Giveback nights, March 25-28 at specific locations, with 10% of sales those nights being donated to Convoy of Hope and their Midwest flood relief efforts. Monday, March 25 at the Republic Road location in Springfield; Tuesday, March 26 at Battlefield Road in Springfield; Wednesday, March 27 at the location in Republic, MO; and Thursday, March 28 at the Nixa location.
Big Whiskey’s has previously partnered with Convoy of Hope, donating $10,000 from a month-long campaign following Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in 2017.
