Gaslight Group Promotes Culture of Giving, Over $50k Donated Back to Community in 2017

SAVANNAH, Ga. - Since forming Gaslight Group, the parent brand to five restaurants and bars in Savannah, Ga., over a decade ago, founders Brian and Jennifer Huskey’s staunch commitment to giving back to the community in which they do business has always been a top priority. Last year, that commitment culminated in over $50,000 of donations and in-kind services to a long list of area nonprofits and organizations who rely on the generosity of others to make ends meet.  

“It’s truly a pay-it-forward mentality around here,” said Brian Huskey. “From our chefs to general managers, wait staff to our hosts, we all have a say in how we give back. Some of our folks have ties to certain causes and we always try to find a way to do something for them. At the end of the day, it really comes down to doing good, feels good, and I think our team across all of our restaurants feel that way too.”

In 2017, an overview of some of the organizations Gaslight Group either contributed funds or in-kind food/services to:
