Pappy’s Smokehouse will donate 50 percent of proceeds from Dine Out day to Komen Missouri.
“We’ve been so fortunate as a business that we want to give back any chance that we have,” said Tom Agusti, Pappy’s Smokehouse general manager. “Opening a restaurant in 2008 at such a hard time for the country and the economy, having to build and build, and grow and thrive, we try to give back to a good cause any chance we get, and there’s not too many better causes than Susan G. Komen Missouri. We hope people come out and support this good cause and support local businesses.”
Since the inaugural Dine Out fundraiser in 2009, more than 500 restaurants have donated more than $450,000 for local, lifesaving breast health services and global breast cancer research.
Seventy-five percent of the net funds raised through Dine Out for the Cure stays in the community to fund breast cancer screening, breast health education and patient navigation and support services for underserved and uninsured individuals. The remaining 25 percent funds cutting-edge, global breast cancer research.
Komen Missouri encourages Dine Out participants to “tweet and eat” by following @KomenMissouri on Twitter and Instagram and using the official event hashtag #KomenSTLDine.
