Murphy Hospitality Group (MHG) from Prince Edward Island raised $5,000 at a yard sale last year with 100 per cent of those funds being donated to the Provincial Addictions Treatment Facility located in Mount Herbert.
The yard sale, which was held in May, featured items from the group’s restaurants, hotels and breweries, along with various donations from staff, family and friends.
Kathy Murphy, who led the charge on the initiative was thrilled with the turn out.
“We had all of the office staff pitch in to take shifts. Shifts were anything from organizing, selling or delivering. It ended up being a really fun few days.”
This past November, the teams from P.E.I. Brewing Company and The Gahan House (a part of MHG) hosted a pasta dinner at Fishbones Kitchen & Bar on Richmond Street to raise money as well for the Provincial Addictions Treatment Facility patients to ensure patients received a gift for the holidays.
