Karma…it’s a word we all have heard.
Culinary Concepts has received an outpouring of support from our neighbors and friends since we opened our first restaurant in 1995. That’s why for us it’s essential to pass on that good karma… to “give back what you get” in life.
Our good karma inspired us to develop Culinary Concepts Charities (a.k.a. KarmaClub) in 2001, so that we can pass on our good karma to others. Our 501©3 non-profit is committed to lending a helping hand to those in need in Southwest Florida, with a focus on local children and young adults.
Culinary Concepts family has several hundred hard working and dedicated employees in its family, who work in Naples’ and Bonita Springs’ best restaurants: Pazzo! Cucina Italiana, Chops City Grill, Yabba Island Grill and Blue Water Bistro.
We’ve developed “Drinks on a Mission,” a special selection of seven Karma Cocktails, of which a portion of the proceeds is donated to local charities.
“Drinks on a Mission” is designed to help raise awareness and funds for local charities that support the needs of the underserved and poor in our own backyard – specifically focusing on children and families. For every drink sold throughout the entire year, a portion of the sale of each Karma Cocktail will go to its charitable beneficiary.
Our karma cocktails support organizations including Youth Haven, KidsCAN for the Cancer Alliance of Naples, the Shelter for Abused Women and Children, Southwest Florida Special Olympics, The safe and Healthy Children Coalition of Collier County, the Shadow Wood Charitable Foundation and the Bonita Bay Veteran’s Council.
Southwest Florida Special Olympics
Thanks to donations from the Southwest Florida community, Special Olympics of Collier County is able to support sports programs for its special needs athletes. On July 30, roughly 30 athletes participated in the 2016 County Aquatics Games and many will go on and participate in the 2016 Area Aquatic Games soon! Support Special Olympics while you sip on The Calypso cocktail at Yabba Island Grill, which benefits Special Olympics programs in Southwest Florida!
