Betting on the ponies – Our afternoon out at Arlington Race Track

Seems like every year we are lucky enough to have amazing weather to celebrate our afternoon at Arlington Race Track. Over the course of about 3 months our managers work so hard to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, a cause that is near and dear to our hearts. Their reward for doing such a phenomenal job is getting out of their stores, enjoying the afternoon relaxing and betting on the horses.

This year we raised just over $33,000. SPECTACULAR JOB everyone!!!

Here are some photos from our afternoon out.

2018 National Multiple Sclerosis Society – Wisconsin Chapter Walk

It goes without saying that once again we participated in the Annual MS Walk held at the Summerfest grounds in Milwaukee. In fact, this year Open Pantry celebrated 20 years of participating in this wonderful event.

Open Pantry sponsored the breakfast for the third time this year. It’s wonderful seeing strangers congregate and strike up conversations around the coffee, juice, donuts, bagels and breakfast bars. The weather was perfect this year, no rain a little bit of sunshine and the wind wasn’t too bad.

For 2018 we raised over $30,000 in just over 3 months for this great cause by selling MS Pin-ups in our stores. Great job to our Store Leaders as well as all of our all of their employees, you all did an amazing job once again!

Here are a couple photos from this year’s Walk.
