Culver’s partners with TurkeyTrot organizers


SIDNEY — The Sidney Culver’s Restaurant announces that they are once again partnering with the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot 5K Run to End Hunger by holding a fundraiser/pre-registration event on Monday, Nov. 14, from 5-8 p.m. This marks the 16th anniversary of the Thanksgiving morning race, and it marks the 12th year that Culver’s has partnered in order to give back to the community and help those in need.

During the fundraiser/pre-registration event, guests can enjoy a meal, with 10% of the proceeds going to the Alpha Community Center. Guests can also pre-register for the 5K race, can purchase this year’s Turkey Trot T-shirt, make a monetary donation by purchasing a “Turkey Buck” to be hung in the restaurant, and can donate their non-perishable foods in lieu of a registration fee for the race.

Culver’s will also have a food collection box available to anyone who would like to donate non-perishable foods throughout the month of November. Food can be donated during regular business hours, between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. at the 2575 Michigan Ave. location.

The Sidney location is locally owned and operated, and has been an active supporter of local charities since opening in 2007.

Owners Derek and Amy Potts believe in supporting community events, and the Turkey Trot 5K Race to End Hunger is one of the best ways to help those going through difficult times. Their partnership with First Presbyterian Church in sponsoring the Turkey Trot 5K event helps individuals and families in Shelby County, and the partnership helps to make the community stronger.

Culver’s support of the event is part of a tradition of giving back to the community. From Culver’s founders to each locally owned and operated restaurant, each franchise partner and team member understands the importance of serving those in need.

This year’s Turkey Trot will be held Thursday, Nov. 24, beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the First Prebsyterian Church, 202 N. Miami Ave., Sidney.
