As a company we are heavily involved in community affairs and local charities. Although we thoroughly enjoy donating to whatever request comes our way, our resources are limited; therefore, we cannot support every request. A few examples of our charitable donations over the past five years are as follows:
Susan G. Komen
2012-2015 Leroy Fox hosted the Fox Rocks for Pink Party, a post Race for the Cure party, where proceeds from the event are donated to Susan G. Komen. The event gathered women and men, racers and non-racers, for a night of entertainment, silent auctions, and delightful mingling. Over the years we’ve raised over $10,000 in-house for Race For the Cure.
Cookies of Kids’ Cancer
To assist in search for a cure for kids’ cancer Leroy Fox participates in a fundraiser each year where we donate a potion of our sales to the foundation. The response we received from surrounding groups was unbelievable! We were so thrilled with the response that we will continue to host events as such in the years to come!
24 Hours of Booty & Pink to Drink honoring Libby Jones
24 Hours of Booty is the premier organization for integrating community cancer fundraising and cycling to engage communities in support of cancer survivorship and navigation programs. Leroy Fox partners together with Team Spokes N’ Mirrors from 24 Hours of Booty for the annual Pink to Drink fundraiser honoring Libby Jones. Learn more about Libby Jones’ story here.
Light the Night for Leukemia
Leroy Fox and sister restaurant Mortimer’s Café & Pub team up with the Light the Night Walk once a year to raise funds and awareness for Leukemia. The Light The Night Walk is LLS’s signature fundraising walk occurring each fall to celebrate and commemorate lives touched by blood cancers and raise funds for our mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte
Leroy Fox works very closely with RMH on numerous events throughout the year, on site and off. Our main event, The Foxy Derby, is held annually on the day of the Kentucky Derby, to raise funds for the incredible charity and to bring awareness to their involvement with the community.
