Continuing our strong commitment to being “A Chicago Tradition,” Garrett Popcorn was proud to be at the Robbie Gould Celebrity Golf Invitational over the weekend.

Robbie Gould Celebrity Golf Invitational

Organized by Chicago Bears kicker Robbie Gould and his Goulden Touch charity, the Celebrity Gold Invitational raises money to help those in need. Over the years, the Goulden Touch has partnered with organizations in a variety of interests, including education, health and medical research.

It is certainly no secret that Garrett Popcorn are huge fans of Chicago sports, so to work with one of the Bears’ prominent stars in his mission to raise money for terrific causes is a humbling honor. We were thrilled to provide the gift of Handcrafted Happiness to all who participated in the Invitational.

If you would like to donate to the Robbie Gould Celebrity Golf Invitational and the Goulden Touch, please visit their website.

And if you’re disappointed to have missed out on the Handcrafted Happiness at the Invitational, you can always order a Tin from our website.

Here at Garrett Popcorn Shops we were heartbroken to hear news of the devastation in the Philippines caused by Typhoon Haiyan (Typhoon Yolanda) that began on November 3, 2013 and led to the loss of over 6,000 lives and has affected an estimated 11 million people. With the help of our generous customers, our Asia-Pacific Shops in Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia (total of 9 Shops)  banded together to raise funds for Haiyan relief efforts. From November 29 – December 8th, 10% of every Tin purchase was donated to help the Philippines.

At the conclusion of our fundraising efforts, we presented a check to The Singapore Red Cross which totaled S$15,000/$100,000 HKD/ 40,000 RM. Here is a photo of Olivia, our Director of APAC Region, donating our check to a representative of the Singapore Red Cross.

Our contribution could not have been possible without the support of our kind and charitable customers. Thank you to everyone who participated in our relief efforts and please keep the Philippines in your thoughts as they rebuild.

Feed The Children

Together we can make a difference and that’s exactly what the family at Garrett Popcorn Shops® and the team at American Airlines just accomplished last week. Garrett Popcorn in partnership with American Airlines, donated 100% of profits from on-board purchases made from June 5 – June 30. Thanks to the support of our customers, Garrett Popcorn Shops® will donate $25,000 to Feed the Children, headquartered near Oklahoma City, to support the families affected by the storms. Additionally, Garrett Popcorn gave 5,000 bags of The Chicago Mix to Feed the Children that were distributed throughout the communities to treat the families both in body and spirit.

“The recent Oklahoma tornadoes were incredibly personal to the team at Feed The Children, and we are committed to the long-term recovery efforts for all of those affected,” said Erin Engelke, VP of PR and Communications for Feed The Children. “We are extremely grateful to Garrett Popcorn Shops for their support of our work and for their generous donation, which will ultimately ensure our mission is fulfilled.”

“Garrett Popcorn Shops® is committed to making a difference in the community. It is our hope that The Chicago Mix will brighten their day and their spirits. It is wonderful to partner with organizations like Feed The Children and companies like American Airlines to help provide some relief.” Megan Chody, Community Relations Director for Garrett Popcorn Shops.
