Community Involvement

HOUSEpitality Family partnership with celebrate! RVA

HOUSEpitality Family, recently formed a partnership with celebrate! RVA, a non-profit organization in Richmond that provides memorable, fun and safe birthday celebrations to disadvantaged children. The restaurant group plans to provide the nonprofit with monetary donations, in-kind donations and volunteer support on an ongoing basis. HOUSEpitality Family is the young non-profit organization's first Richmond brand to pledge support to celebrate! RVA's mission for an extended period of time.

HOUSEpitality Family and celebrate! RVA kicked off their partnership this month with celebrate! RVA visiting restaurant locations to share their story during weekly Our Story events that the restaurant hosts. Our Story events are typically opportunities where guests can meet the local artisans who make the products served in the restaurants, so the celebrate! RVA Our Story events are a unique addition.

"We owe so much to the Richmond community and we're thankful that we found an opportunity like this one to give back that aligns so closely with our mission to celebrate life," said Kevin Healy, owner of the HOUSEpitality Family restaurant group that includes The Boathouse, Casa del Barco and the outdoor dining pop-up concept Dinner in the Field. "Supporting our local community is important to us, and we're thrilled to have the chance to make a greater impact with this one organization."

HOUSEpitality Family employees will have opportunities throughout the year to volunteer at celebrate! RVA birthday parties and engage with the organization.
