SAINT AUGUSTINE – Let your appetite do the giving while you support the St. Augustine Humane Society by dining at Columbia Restaurant during the month of September. When the local Humane Society is selected as a recipient, the restaurant will donate five percent of all guests’ lunch and dinner checks to the charitable organization in the form of gift certificates. The process is for lunch and dinner customers to put a check mark next to the name of the non-profit which will be listed on a ballot provided by the restaurant. The promotion is available at the St. Augustine location, 98 St. George Street and at any of the Columbia locations in Florida. Follow on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. For more information, visit the website at www.ColumbiaRestaurant.com.
According to Carolyn Smith, St. Augustine Humane Society’s Executive Director, the gift certificate program continues to help the non-profit recognize a variety of supporters including the top fundraisers who participate in the Pin Up Paws Calendar Photo Contest at www.pinuppaws.com. The Columbia Restaurant serves as a major sponsor of the calendar effort along with Clear Channel Outdoor which donated a billboard campaign to promote the fundraiser. “We are very proud to be selected as a local participant in the Community Harvest program,” said Smith. “The restaurant and its patrons show their generous support by helping to prevent the needless relinquishment of pets to shelters through our charity services and low-cost spay neuter programs,” she said.
Since its inception, the Columbia Restaurant Community Harvest has donated more than $2.2 million to non-profit organizations throughout Florida.
