Lizard’s Thicket Raises $3,600 for Local Charities in Honor of 40th AnniversaryOct 27, 2017 08:08AM ● By Emily Stevenson
Lizard’s Thicket has raised $3,600 through sales of its limited edition 40th anniversary coffee mugs. Local non-profits Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Columbia, Sharing God's Love and Palmetto Place Children's Shelter will each receive donations of $1,200 from the restaurant.
The limited-edition mugs were sold for $5 each, beginning Weds., Sept. 27, in honor of the family-owned and operated business’s 40th anniversary and in celebration of Lizard's Thicket’s brand new Columbian coffee blend, which is also locally roasted in the Carolinas. Lizard’s Thicket selected these non-profits because they work to strengthen families and support children in the Midlands.
Lizard’s Thicket has several other events planned for its 40th anniversary, including:
- Lizard's Thicket is also hosting 40 different school percent nights this fall in honor of the 40th anniversary. Schools have signed up to participate, and on their night at the restaurant each school will receive a portion of the proceeds of sales from that evening.
- The Williams family, who owns and operates Lizard’s Thicket, is offering a scholarship to a University of South Carolina College of Hotel, Retail and Sport Management student. Stay tuned as Lizard’s Thicket announces more details about this scholarship.
- This fall, the newly renovated Elmwood Lizard's Thicket (818 Elmwood Avenue) will re-open with greater parking, a fresh interior and exterior and a state-of-the-art kitchen.
