Lake Geneva Country Meats is proud to continue to sponsor the Charity Check portion of Lake Geneva Restaurant Week. The Charity Check is a unique charitable aspect of Lake Geneva Restaurant Week. The Charity Check allows diners to fill out a ballot selecting one of the participating charities to receive a $5,000 donation. At the end of Restaurant Week, all the Charity Check ballots are totaled, and the organization with the most votes will receive the $5,000 donation.
This is the 4th year Lake Geneva Country Meats has sponsored the Charity Check, and will represent $20,000 of commitment to our local community. We will be producing short videos to help introduce you to each charity. In the meantime, please read a brief overview of each charity, and stay tuned for updates!
