Wellman’s Pub in Des Moines and Wellman’s Pub & Rooftop in West Des Moines, announced today that they are again partnering with Iowa Beverage Systems to support St. Jude Research Hospital this holiday season.
This is the second year in which Wellman’s has participated. It began in 2014 as a holiday-themed event for one weekend, but has evolved into a holidays-long event lasting most of December. Last year Wellman’s ended the fundraiser with a private event wherein people were able to donate more. Because of this success, it's become an annual event.
“We are very excited to continue our tradition of contributions to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to help raise funds to support its mission to find cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases," said Wellman's Pub & Rooftop owner Tom Baldwin. "This year’s campaign slogan ‘Don’t be a Grinch, Giving is a Cinch’, was a collective idea of several of our waitresses and bartenders. Last year, our employees, loyal customers, and even those stopping in for the first time donated to make this event a resounding success."
How the community can help:
- December 7---December 31: Anyone can stop into either of the two Wellman’s Pub locations and make a donation. Servers and bartenders will ask each customer if they'd like to donate. With every donation, customers will have a stocking hung at the bar in their honor.
- December 17, 18, & 19: for any bottle or draw of Coors Light sold, Iowa Beverage Systems will be donating $1 towards this great cause!
