Charitable Donations and Public Works

We’re proud to tell you that we donate tens of thousands in cash to more than 300 local charities annually using Salty’s gift cards for auctions and fund-raisers. Also, our extraordinarily talented chefs and management team members are honored to contribute their time, effort and additional dollars to local charity events and fundraisers to the tune of over $250,000 annually. Additionally, we were involved in helping to raise thousands more at other various events. We hope you can join us this year as we try to break each year’s records with our partners:
