On Wednesday night, the wonderful folks at Moonshine Grill hosted a cool (in spite of the heat) fundraiser for the Red Cross relief efforts in Joplin, MO. The owner of Moonshine Grill has ties to the Joplin area and wanted to help those that had been affected by the devastating tornado that hit Joplin on May 22nd. He talked to friends in Joplin and told them he wanted to help families there. His friends told him to give to the Red Cross because the Red Cross was there from the beginning with assistance.
Moonshine Grill provided appetizers, drinks, live music, a raffle and an intimate patio area for all the fun. The band Jitterbug Vipers played – they are a really hip jazz swing band – and occasionally had a hip 2 year old sing with them!
Some local restaurants provided really generous gift certificates for the raffle: ZTejas, Uchi, Fleming’s Steak House, Parkside and Hopdoddy Burger Bar just to name a few. This fun event raised $3,800 for disaster relief efforts in Joplin, MO. This was such a terrific effort on the part of Moonshine Grill and their guests. We cannot thank them enough. Great community partners like this allow us to provide our services for free. We couldn’t do it without them. Thank you Moonshine Grill!!
