Oswego, NY – Pathfinder Bank is welcomed with open arms as they join The Clubhouse Tavern and Eagle Beverage as sponsors of the 12th Annual United Way Breakfast.
On Saturday, July 29 from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The Club House Tavern / Spencer’s Ali, 126 West Second Street in Oswego, will host a breakfast in support of United Way’s annual Stuff-A-Bus campaign. Sponsored by: Pathfinder Bank, Eagle Beverage, and Robert and Liz McGrath, owners of The Club House Tavern / Spencer’s Ali, the breakfast is open to the public. The suggested minimum donation for the breakfast is $5.00 for adults with children 10 and under free. All donations will benefit the Stuff-A-Bus campaign that helps provides area youth in need with the supplies they need to begin the school year.
“This is the twelve year that we have hosted this event,” said Robert McGrath. “The United Way does a lot to benefit the youth in our community. The Stuff-A-Bus campaign is just one of the ways in which they do so and I’m pleased that we, along with valuable volunteers, can continue to do so. We’ve enjoyed plenty of community support over the years and are looking forward to welcoming a big crowd.”
McGrath noted that several local businesses are also supporting the breakfast by suppling meu items; including sausage from Maria’s Restaurant, home fries from Dahl’s Diner, bacon from The Office Tavern, and ham from Gibby’s Irish Pub. Breakfast will be prepared by Patrick Berry, head cook at Jocko’s Diner.
Thanks in part to the success of last year’s breakfast United Way’s Stuff-A-Bus campaign provided approximately 1500 students with the school supplies they needed to begin the school year.
“We are very appreciative of the continued support we receive from, The Club House Tavern / Spencer’s Ali, Eagle Beverage, local businesses, our planning committee, and the many volunteers that make our breakfast possible. I would also like to acknowledge Pathfinder Bank as our newest sponsor,” said Executive Director of the United Way of Greater Oswego County, Patrick Dewine. “Businesses and community members coming together to help our youth and show support for their United Way and the way that we strive to help youth succeed is inspiring. What better way to strengthen our community than investing in today’s youth, who will become tomorrow’s leaders. I invite everyone to join us for a delicious breakfast.”
