We just gave away $7,700 to support music events in our community! - Mishawaka

We just gave away $7,700 to support music events in our community!

Here at the Mishawaka, we have always put a premium on music and community, ever since the days of Walter S.Thompson building dance hall on the banks of the Poudre river over 100 years ago. Today this tradition is continued by a panel of volunteers known as The Mish Initiative. This panel in constituted by 9 employees of the Mishawaka throughout various levels of the restaurant to management. Recently the panel went over applications for Mish’n Booster, which is a sponsorship program for local events that align with our values.

“Injecting funds through sponsorship of organizations and events aligned with our values.  It is important to us to make a difference in the community by helping organizations to achieve their goals.”
