The Spillane Group believes firmly in the concept of “giving where you’re living”. We make every effort to contribute to the local community and a wide variety of charities. Take a look at some of our past and reoccurring efforts, and feel free to suggest a worthy cause we should support!
St. Baldrick’s Foundation
St. Baldrick’s is a national leader in funding childhood cancer research, and each year they raise funds by encouraging individuals to be sponsored “shavees”, shaving their heads in solidarity with child cancer patients. Mickey’s has been a major supporter of this effort for the past five years, hosting an annual “shave-off” in late March or April. To date, we have raised over $200,000.00! stbaldricks.org
Members of Mickey Spillane’s staff and management tend to look a little furrier during the month of Movember (formerly known as November). Why? It’s all part of an effort to raise awareness and funds to support men’s health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer. In 2013 Mickey’s raised nearly $10,000! us.movember.com
Annual Golf Outing
For eight consecutive years, we’ve held an annual golf outing which typically raises upwards of $10,000.00 a year. Some of our past benefactors include The Eastchester and Tuckahoe Chamber of Commerce, SEPTA, Pathways school for autistic children, Eastchester Little League, Eastchester Kids Soccer, and Fallen Police Officer Joe DiPippo Scholarship Fund.
The Community Fund
In November of 2013, Mickey’s hosted Bobby Moynihan, star of Saturday Night Live, as a guest mixologist. Bobby donated all his tips from the busy evening to The Community Fund of Bronxville, Eastchester & Tuckahoe. thecommunityfund.org
Annual Holiday Gift Cards
Every holiday season we give 10% of all gift card sales to The Eastchester High School sports program.
Athlete Of The Week
Throughout the school year, we give two $25 gift cards to three local high schools for their nominations of Athlete Of The Week. We also display their pictures on our Athletes Of The Week wall.
Eastchester Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade
We continue to be one of the five main donors to The Eastchester Irish-American Social Club’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Guest Mixology for SEPTA
Each fall we have a guest mixology event to raise funds for SEPTA (Special Education Parent Teacher Association). Last year we raised over $6000.00 in one night!
