Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom raised $11,500 for “Miracle on Idaho Street,” a holiday celebration in which more than 800 of the Treasure Valley’s less fortunate receive a holiday meal, new clothing and a professional portrait with Santa. The funds were raised during the restaurant’s “Mustaches for Miracles” event on Oct. 7 at Old Chicago on Idaho Street.
Two hundred people attended “Mustaches for Miracles,” where 63 mustached competitors, otherwise known as stachletes, competed in a series of events like the Mustache Olympics, Name a “Stache” and the Guinness Absorbency Challenge. This was the sixth year the fundraising event has taken place.
In addition to fundraising for “Miracle on Idaho Street,” Old Chicago has demonstrated its commitment to fighting hunger by working closely with the Idaho Foodbank. Old Chicago employees spent the summer volunteering with the FoodBank. Old Chicago’s charitable arm, CraftWorks Foundation, recently donated $10,000 to the Foodbank.
