Thanks for Giving raises $25K

T-Bones Great American Eatery and Cactus Jack’s held its largest ever Thanks for Giving fundraiser to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs in New Hampshire, raising $25,355.

Each year, the New Hampshire-based restaurant group chooses a local statewide nonprofit organization to be the recipient of its four-week fundraising promotion. Guests were given the opportunity to donate $5 and receive $5 off their next visit in return, when dining at any T-Bones or Cactus Jack’s location.

The Boys & Girls Clubs in New Hampshire is a collaboration of nine independent Boys & Girls Clubs serving 19,000 youth annually in New Hampshire. That includes clubs in Derry and Salem. They enable young people, especially those who need them most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Boys & Girls Clubs in New Hampshire have been serving New Hampshire youth for more than 100 years.

“This is our ninth year running our Thanks for Giving fundraiser and it was our most successful fundraiser to date,” said Tanya Untiet, T-Bones and Cactus Jack’s community outreach coordinator. “The Boys & Girls Clubs in New Hampshire are such a well deserving group and we couldn’t be more excited. The support of our patrons truly made this a successful event.”
