Jan. 7, 2014 - PRLog -- On January 6, 2014, Bavarian Inn ( Corporate Giving Chair Justin Cain, along with Bavarian Inn General Manager Amy Zehnder Grossi, presented the 2013 Corporate Giving check in the amount of $8,600 to Special Olympics Michigan. Belinda Laughlin, Field Service Manager for the Northern and Upper Peninsula Regions accepted the check on behalf of Special Olympics Michigan, saying, “Special Olympics Michigan is proud to accept this check and it comes at a perfect time.  The donation amount will completely cover the cost of Area 22 participants attending the State Winter Games that will be held at Grand Traverse Resort in Traverse City from February 5-7, 2014.”

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,” commented Cain. “I personally enjoyed the opportunity to present the check to Ms. Laughlin. It allowed me and all of our entire Bavarian Inn Team Members, to partially see the end result. We are pleased that our contribution will cover participants’ cost of the Winter Games.”
