Skuddlebutts Donating to Fire Company; SkinnySweet Grand Opening; Shop with the League
Here's a rundown of some upcoming events and promotions happening in Glen Ellyn in the next week or so.
Skuddlebutts partners with Village of Glen Ellyn to benefit Glen Ellyn Fire Co.
Take out, order delivery or use Skuddlebutts to cater an event on Dec. 1 and 2 and the restaurant will donate 10 percent of its earnings to the fire company. Whether choosing pizza or another item from the menu, the Glen Ellyn Volunteer Fire Co. will benefit.
“We are always trying to contribute to the community,” said Danny Glover, the restaurant’s owner in a news release. “This seems like a perfect way to help raise money and awareness for those who risk their lives as volunteers.”
To participate, all restaurant patrons need to do is mention the Volunteer Fire Company or the Village of Glen Ellyn when placing or picking up their orders during that weekend and Skuddlebutts will make the donation.
“In true Glen Ellyn fashion a thriving new member of our business community is supporting another in a way that benefits everyone,” Village President Mark Pfefferman said in a news release.
The Volunteer Fire Company saves taxpayers more than $3 million per year, so fundraising is vital, said Village Manager Mark Franz.
