Re: “Constantly asking restaurants to give freebies to charities has got to stop

I can relate to both sides my degree is in Hospitality Management and worked in the industry for many years. I have also chaired many charity events. I wouldn't dream of asking any business for a donation unless I was a regular customer. That goes for restaurants and retail alike. I also encouraged my fellow committee members to Do the same. While I can appreciate some of what this woman from the PR firm has to say, a lot of it is crap. First of all a donation of a gift certificate can be beneficial to a restaurant in several ways. First it can introduce the restaurant to customers that may not be familiar with the restaurant. Second a restaurant writes a gift certificate for $100, hard cost to the restaurant is no more than $35, yet they can write off the full amount as a donation. Let's not forget the small business Anthem. Patronize small local restaurants instead of chains because the owners live and work in the community. Money made here stays here. I'm guessing as a PR firm you have sung this song more than once. Well that's how people get the idea to ask a business to give back to the community.
