The donation resulted from the pubs’ annual fundraising campaign to benefit the organization and will help support the organization’s mission to fight heart disease and strokes through funding CPR training, innovative research, fighting for stronger public health policies, placing more AEDs throughout communities and providing critical tools and information to save and improve lives.
The Shannon Rose Irish Pub’s locations in Clifton, NJ and Ramsey, NJ kicked off the fundraising campaign during February’s American Heart Month by asking guests to add $1 or $5 to their checks to benefit the American Heart Association, which The Shannon Rose Irish Pub matched up to $1,000. In July, The Shannon Rose Irish Pub offered a Summer Love cocktail special with $1 donated from each drink purchased. Additionally, The Shannon Rose Irish Pub participated in the Bergen Passaic Heart Walk on Sunday, October 6, serving as the major food sponsor for the walk by providing a selection of food items to participants at the event. In 2018, The Shannon Rose donated $10,000 for the American Heart Association as a result of various fundraising initiatives throughout the year.
