RAPID CITY (May 19TH, 2014) — On Wednesday, May 21st, the gymnasium of Black Hawk Elementary School was filled with excited students as they gathered to receive a $4,000 check from the Colonial House Restaurant and Bar.
Compliments of the restaurant’s 2013-2014 Endowment Fund, the decision to donate the money to Black Hawk Elementary was made after viewing a presentation by the students to the Colonial House staff about the Xylophone Program.
Presenting the check was Colonial House owner Kevin Beshara, along with his wife, Vicky Beshara and parents Bill and Sandy Beshara. Addressing the students, Kevin explained that “Our biggest mission at the Colonial House is to give back to the community, so we’re very excited to be able to do that today.”
The Colonial House Endowment Fund is raised through their “Civic Mondays” program, in which $2.00 is subtracted from guest checks when they wear a shirt bearing a local civic organization’s logo. The money is placed into the fund and matched by the Colonial House. Staff also contributes a portion of their tips toward the community oriented fund.
