Saturdays are 'Caturdays' at Sloppy Joe's

Introducing Caturday: A Purrfect Blend of Fun and Philanthropy! It all started with our beloved bartender, Ashley H., donning cat ears every Saturday, spreading cheer with a hearty 'Happy Caturday!' The infectious spirit caught on, as more staff joined in. Intrigued customers wanted in on the feline festivities, so we began selling cat ears, with all proceeds benefiting the Sloppy Joe’s Foundation. The response was overwhelming! Now, Caturday is a cherished weekly tradition. Moving forward, we're thrilled to announce that each month will spotlight a different community nonprofit, carrying on the spirit of Sloppy Joe’s Foundation, as we dedicate proceeds to those in need. Join us in making a difference, one Caturday at a time!

November Caturday’s will benefit Sister Season and their mission that focuses on Hospitality/Tourism-related industry employees, who have become temporarily out of work, through no fault of their own.

For more information or to make a donation, please visit the Sloppy Joe's Foundation. Your generosity is appreciated!
