You know that friend that’s always ready with a fancy cocktail, a good meal, or an invitation to a great all day party? We have one in Bunch of 5s Hospitality Co. (! With five restaurant and event spaces in Raleigh’s Glenwood South neighborhood, they’re a great friend to have. Bunch of 5s has been spreading the word about CASA and helping us achieve our mission ever since they moved in – so we’re thrilled to recognize them as our May 2019 Partner of the Month!

Soon after several of their incredible restaurants moved in down the street from our downtown office, they had a Friendsgiving drink special to raise money to support CASA’s mission. Last year, they started featuring CASA as their nonprofit partner at their annual St. Patrick’s Day and Fall Celebration block parties at Milk Bar. So far, these wonderful friends have contributed more than $7500 to support CASA’s affordable housing mission. That helps two families with stable housing for almost a full year!

“We are just delighted to work with Bunch of 5s restaurants and staff,” CASA’s Director of Resource Development, Missy Hatley, said. “They help us get the word out about our work around our neighborhood, and the money they’ve raised has allowed us to provide stable housing for our neighbors in need.”

Jen Heasty, Bunch of 5s’ Director of Operations, does the heavy lifting to make these parties happen. “Bringing together people in our community in a fun positive atmosphere is our goal and working with groups like CASA allows us also to give back directly to our community,” she said.  

In appreciation of our partnership, Jen announced that all CASA friends are entitled to 20% off during the whole month of May at the following locations: Milk Bar, Dogwood, Southern Charred, and Anchor Bar. Just tell your server or bartender that you are a friend of CASA and would like to use the 20% discount!

So cheers to our May Partner of the Month – Thanks for being incredible neighbors and friends, Bunch of 5s!
