Creating Traffic for Charities

One of the main focuses of the Mangia Bene Restaurant family is to make a difference in the Jackson community – or like we say at Sal & Mookie's – "Do the right thing." This is why we have created a new charity program that really gets all three of our restaurants involved in helping create friends and raise funds for the amazing charities in our community. Combining our expertise in marketing and promotion with the authentic story of each month's featured charity, we are able to both raise awareness for the charity, and drive additional traffic to our restaurants. Working together works and is financially beneficial for all of us!

BRAVO!, Sal & Mookie’s, and Broad Street want to “create traffic” for local charities in the Jackson area. Each month, our restaurants feature one charity to promote for an entire month. 

3 WAYS… 2 GIVE… 1 CHARITY. How will you show your support?

The charity for the month of September is...

Located in downtown Jackson's Mississippi Arts Center, the International Museum of Muslim Cultures (IMMC) is the first and only Islamic history museum in the country. The goals of the Museum are to educate the public about Islamic history and civilization and to help provide educational tools for teaching global consciousness, historical literacy, and multicultural appreciation. The IMMC seeks to continue to grow as a cultural tourism destination and serve the community as an educational and research center as well as a repository for Islamic objects having cultural, artistic, aesthetic, and historical significance. Additionally, The IMMC seeks to facilitate multicultural and interfaith understanding; reduce cultural, religious, and racial bigotry; and advance Mississippi and America's cultural, religious, and civic discussions to provide a better atmosphere for working together for the common good.
