November 11 – Veteran’s Day
Shot For Shot Fundraiser
P.J. Clarkes – at The Forum Shops at Caesars
In honor of Veteran’s Day on November 11, all alcohol consumption at P.J. Clarke’s will benefit a worthy cause! From open to close, P.J. Clarke’s will host their annual “Shot for Shot” fundraising event which benefits Fisher House, a national foundation that supports veterans and military families. Fisher House is an organization near and dear to the restaurant, as co-owner Phil Scotti is a marine. Since the event’s inception P.J. Clarke’s has raised more than $200,000 for Fisher House.
Guests can donate the amount equal to the cost of their drink (or any amount of money) throughout the day. At day’s end, all of the donations will be tallied up and P.J. Clarke’s will match the total. Branded Shot for Shot t-shirts will also be sold in bundles of 10 for $100 with half of these proceeds donated to Fisher House.
