Five Guys Team Up With Lake Monsters For Annual "May Days" Fundraising Campaign

April 13, 2014

BURLINGTON, VT --- The Vermont Lake Monsters are excited to announce Five Guys as a partner with their annual May fundraiser to benefit non-profits from across the state of Vermont. "Five Guys May Days" fundraiser will launch May 1st as a month-long program devoted to helping raise funds and awareness for state wide non-profits.

"We at Five Guys are very excited to get a chance to support Vermont charities.", said local Five Guys franchisee owner Greg Vasey. "It's even more fun when we can show that support while cheering on the Lake Monsters. We're flattered by the welcome we have received since opening a couple years ago, and this a great way to give something back."

Support of local non-profits has shown both the Lake Monsters and Five Guys strong commitment to the greater Burlington community. The goal of this program is not only to provide the opportunity for organizations to raise money, but also raise awareness for their programs all while providing a chance for supporters to come together on their night at the ballpark.

Dragonheart VT is just one of the many local non-profits who have made coming out to the ballpark a yearly event for their supporters.

"This program is a chance for Dragonheart Vermont members to get together and support the Lake Monsters as well as the Lake Monsters supporting us", said Judy Kinner of Dragonheart Vermont. "We have done this program the past two years are grateful for the opportunity to raise money for breast cancer and supporters dragon boating teams, we will certainly be doing the program again this upcoming season."

Participating non-profits will have the entire month of May to promote and sell $6 Lake Monsters tickets through a specific URL link designated to their organization for a specific game during the season. After the month of May is completed, the Lake Monsters will total the tickets sold by the non-profit and donate half of the proceeds back to that particular organization. Following the selling period Five Guys will also donate up to $500 to match the amount raised by the highest selling non-profit in the program. When the particular game which the non-profit had been selling for arrives during the season, that organization will be recognized on field and presented a check worth the amount of money which they have raised.

This opportunity is an easy way to fundraise for non-profits, simply by reaching out to your employees, supporters, volunteers, sponsors and spreading the URL link.
