MADISON, NJ - Poor Herbie’s at 13 Waverly Place, Madison, owned by Judy and Dennis Mullins for more than 20 years, serves as a meeting spot for a variety of non-profit organizations to raise some funds and "the roof" for a favorite charity.
“We invite non-profit institutions here to assist in their mission by providing some space and a place," said Judy Mullins. "They can come together locally, enjoy a night out, be entertained and support the causes they feel passionate about.”
Maureen Holly, Manager of Poor Herbie’s for over 20 years said, “It’s such a good feeling to work and be part of a place where there’s food, friends and fun! It’s even better when it’s all done in the spirit of something you really care about. I ring everything up at the end of the night, cut a check for 10 percent of the total tab and put it in the hand of that organization.”
Poor Herbie’s has held numerous events over the past several months from Union Beach Relief, St. Baldrick’s for cancer research, the Police Unity Tour which is a bike trip to Washington to commemorate fallen police officers and Send a Kid to Camp.
“Give Back” Week begins on Monday, April 29 with Tori J. Elementary raising funds for the school' April 30 for "Push to Walk," a foundation that helps rehabilitate individuals with spinal cord injuries; May 1 for The Museum of Early Trades and Crafts and on May 2, it’s guest bartenders serving up cocktails to support the Madison Chamber of Commerce.
Fundraisers held at this neighborhood pub speak to you when you visit Poor Herbie’s facebook site at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Poor-Herbies/276062754116. Judy Mullins added, “If you’re out for a good time and you have to eat anyway, why not participate in something for the sake of the common good?”
