Fundraiser raises over $40,000 for Buffalo Chip employees
CAVE CREEK – Employees of the Buffalo Chip Saloon got a needed boost from a Dec. 16 fundraiser. Over $40,000 was raised for the employees and their families.
The employees were put out of work when the Buffalo Chip burned down on Thanksgiving. Rebuilding plans are underway, but, in the meantime, employees are getting help from various community sources. At the Dec. 16 event, proceeds from many local merchants’ products, food and beverage sales, massages, a book signing, a silent auction, and more all went to the employee fund.
The Foothills Food Bank is also accepting donations for the Buffalo Chip employees. To donate, contact the food bank at (480) 488-1145.
A fund for the Buffalo Chip employees has been set up at Parkway Bank. To contribute to the fund, visit the Parkway Bank and ask to contribute to the Buffalo Chip employee fund.
