Burgerville restaurants cook up arts fundraiser

Burgerville restaurants will donate 15 percent of all sales up to $15,000 on Thursday, March 21, to Work for Art, a campaign that supports the arts in the Northwest.

From 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. that day, all Burgerville’s locations will promote the “Feed the Arts” program, which the Vancouver company has hosted for three years through Work for Art.

“Like food, the arts are where we come together most powerfully to blend cultures, express ideas, balance opposing thoughts, and create healthy, lively communities,” said Burgerville President Jeff Harvey. “The arts are not just how we survive — they’re how we thrive.”

Harvey is also honorary chairman of the leadership cabinet at Work for Art.

Burgerville’s employees also participate through the company’s annual Work for Art employee giving campaign. Last year Burgerville employees gave more than $25,000 to the program.

Work for Art’s Community Fund and Arts Education Fund supports more than a 100 arts and culture programs, from dance to visual art along with the literary arts in Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties.
