Businesses have a responsibility to give back to the community. Often times, we see it as a fundraising event on a slow night, where a portion of the fee goes to a nonprofit or community group. This activity doubles as a marketing tool, because while it’s a good thing for the community group, it also attracts customers and ultimately benefits the business, too.
At Canvas and Cabernet, we like to take things a step further. We have an ongoing charitable contributions program: we participate in TAGG, we offer special staff pricing for nonprofit staff, and we provide monthly fundraising events.
Recently, we had an opportunity to do a creative activity and support Casting for Recovery. All of our artists except CaSandra, who was out of town, gave their time and painted 28 wooden fish for the participants of the Nebraska events. Needless to say, the evening was fun and meaningful…the artists were excited to be involved, and we enjoyed the opportunity to give back creatively!
