Maryland Independent - - Business -

The Greene Tur­tle Sports Bar & Grille in La Plata is par­tic­i­pat­ing in the 11th an­nual Tips for Tots on Wed­nes­day, Dec. 7, to sup­port Toys for Tots.

The Tips for Tots ini­tia­tive of the sports bar chain en­cour­ages em­ploy­ees to do­nate 100 per­cent of their tips made that day to ben­e­fit the U.S. Marine Corps Re­serve’s Toys for Tots pro­gram. The Greene Tur­tle raised over $70,000 last year and has set its goal for $90,000 this year, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

The sports bar will also con­duct raf­fles and silent auc­tions through­out the day to raise ad­di­tional funds at its lo­ca­tions in Mary­land, Delaware, New York, Vir­ginia, West Vir­ginia and Wash­ing­ton, D.C.

The Greene Tur­tle Fran­chis­ing Corp. will add a match­ing $500 do­na­tion for each par­tic­i­pat­ing lo­ca­tion that earns $1,000 in tips.

Toys for Tots col­lects new, un­wrapped toys dur­ing Oc­to­ber, Novem­ber and De­cem­ber each year, and dis­trib­utes those toys as Christmas gifts to less for­tu­nate chil­dren in the com­mu­nity in which the cam­paign is con­ducted.

The La Plata store is lo­cated at 6 St. Mary’s Ave. Tips for Tots is from open to close.
