P.A.S.S. Event at The Local on Nov. 30 to Support Girl Scouts Troop 10492

Published Wednesday, November 25, 2015 at 4:59 pm

Want to support a local Girl Scouts troop? All you have to do is enjoy a great dinner in downtown Boone on Nov. 30. Really, it’s that easy!

Each month, The Local restaurant on Howard Street teams up with a nonprofit or organization in the area to shed light on that group’s mission and ongoing projects. When you join The Local for dinner at one of these P.A.S.S. events, you receive free appetizers, one raffle ticket and one free pint of beer, glass of wine or other alcoholic beverage.

This month’s P.A.S.S. event will take place from 6-8 p.m. on Nov. 30 and will support Girl Scout Troop 10492, which serves 12 girls in grades 5 and above across Watauga County. Through this troop, the girls learn talents and passions they may not otherwise know, and they can use what they learn about themselves to create a better place for the world.

Some of the troop’s service projects have included maintaining the garden in front of Boone Jaycees Park, organizing a birthday party for children at The Hospitality House and more. They’ve worked on research projects like studying the effects of air quality and energy conservation, as well as how the government works.

The Local’s P.A.S.S. event will raise funds to provide badges (which can cost up to $500 a year), materials for badge work and materials for service projects. The funds raised will also support the troop’s budget for trips to places like Savannah, the birth place of the Girl Scouts organization, with other troops.

So, want to help? Just show up for dinner and enjoy your night.

Here’s how the P.A.S.S. events work:

You can get your ticket at the door for the event you want to support, or buy a pass that will get you into each monthly event for the entire year. Whether you want to spend $10 or $100, The Local gives you a chance to give back.

Purchasing a ticket, or a P.A.S.S., to the program earns event-goers prizes and benefits at different levels.

  • Each $10 Silver Pass includes entry to one event.
  • Each $50 Gold Pass includes entry to six events and a 5 percent discount on all food items for cardholders. The Gold Pass expires after one year.
  • Each $100 Platinum Pass includes entry to one year’s worth of monthly events and a 10 percent discount on all food items for cardholders. The Platinum Pass expires after 18 months.

The event will take place in the side room at the restaurant. Dinner guests won’t be required to purchase a ticket in order to enjoy dinner, but they’re welcomed to get in on the fun if they choose to do so.

The P.A.S.S. series represents the restaurant’s and the program’s core values:

  • PROVIDE: Provide fundraising opportunities through partnering with local philanthropic organizations, nonprofits, educators, social services and others that foster the well-being of the community.
  • ADVOCATE: Advocating for those in need by improving local social justice issues, education and supporting local organizations that need funding. Through this process, these organizations will be able to better serve their clients and ultimately impact the community overall.
  • SUSTAIN: Working towards a more self-sufficient community cycle. Utilizing local goods and services not only has a positive impact on the environment but also the local economy. Through supporting local economy, we can become more sustainable as individual businesses. In addition, we are creating a small sustainable culture through increasing the overall health of the community, through partnering with organizations driven toward the service and growth of the community’s needs.
  • SYNERGY: Combining different services to reach higher potential than the individual services alone. We are more than just the sum of our businesses added together — we are synergistic. By partnering with services that individually may have need, we can build more robust identities through working together.
