For over 15 years Bavarian Inn Restaurant team members have been giving back to community organizations through its Corporate Giving Program. This is a program that was established to help those organizations that help others. Each year an organization is chosen and then Bavarian Inn team members spend the year raising funds through various activities such as auctions, candy sales, donating for the privilege of wearing jeans on a designated day, etc. At the end of the year, funds are tallied and then matched by the Bavarian Inn’s Dorothy Zehnder family. The highlight is always the team appreciation party in early January when the Corporate Giving Check is presented.
The program has grown, contributing more than $77,000 over the past 15 years with some past recipients being American Cancer Society, Child Abuse and Neglect Council, and the Saginaw Veterans Center.
As Bavarian Inn Restaurant’s second year as the Corporate Giving Chair, Justin Cain, Retail Supervisor, is proud to have been a part of the program. “It was such a pleasure to see our team members really get into the donation fun. From the excitement of Chinese auctions to the simplicity of being able to wear jeans to work, they were having fun, but at the same time knew they were helping a worthy organization,”
