Over the years we’ve partnered with a variety of local restaurants that have been proud to put the “fun” back in fundraising. From one night dinners to longer affairs, there are so many local restaurants willing to give back to our homeless pets. We can’t deny it; we love it! Throw in the bonus of dining out at your favorite restaurant for a great cause, well; it’s a win-win!
I mention all of this because we want to let you know about our fabulous campaign, Bone Appetite. We love working together with our foodies so we decided to join forces. Our goal is to have one restaurant each month host Bone Appetite for homeless pets at Nevada Humane Society. We promote them, they give back to us.
We kicked off Bone Appetite in December, with O’Cleary’s and CBQ Bar-B-Que in Legends at Sparks Marina. Currently, Mellow Fellow Gastro Pub is raising money and awareness for Nevada Humane Society—and they’re not just about food and drink. They’re unique because they welcome the whole family for a good time, offering everything from Bingo, karaoke and trivia nights to bar games, free pool and shuffleboard!
If that doesn’t have you convinced, add Saturday, January 30 to your calendar. Mellow Fellow Gastro Pub is wrapping up the Bone Appetite event with a special Yappy Hour! From 5pm to 9pm, join us for a Bingo tournament, raffle prizes, food and drink specials and more. Proceeds and added donations will directly benefit our homeless pets.
I have to say, from the first moment I met Ryan, the owner, he was so excited to be a part of this. We were brainstorming ideas on napkins and talking about everything our community has to offer—and he wants to set an example for others in giving back. We couldn’t be happier!
So if you’re looking to dine out and give back, visit Mellow Fellow Gastro Pub and tell your server you are there for Nevada Humane Society. Bring your friends, family, colleagues—just go! Remember; tell them you are here to support Nevada Humane Society so that they know to give a portion of your bill back to the animals.
Mellow Fellow Gastro Pub is open for lunch and dinner, located at 300 East Second Street in Reno just across from the Reno Aces Ballpark. There is free parking in the garage. For more details and specific dining hours, please contact Mellow Fellow directly at 775-657-8946.
P.S. Next month, February, we are featured as the charity of the month for Rapscallions Seafood House and Bar. We hope to see you there, too!
