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?

CityDance provides free ballet classes for approximately 75 aspiring dancers each school year. Dance wear and dance shoes are also supplied at no charge to parents, encouraging more of Jackson's children to study ballet. Auditions at the beginning of the school year are open to any child between the ages of 7 and 10 who is enrolled in the Jackson Public Schools. USA International Ballet Competition offers CityDance through the support of generous sponsors. Funded in part by grants from the Greater Jackson Arts Council; the Mississippi Arts Commission, a state agency; and support by the City of Jackson.
