That was the mission and it has been accomplished. We are ambassadors to drinking alcoholic beverages, eating world class food, music, camaraderie, fellowship and fun.
Gaspar’s Grotto is also a beloved local landmark deep in the fiber of our community. We have used the venue over the past 20 plus years to raise more than ½ million dollars for local charities. Today, the guests may choose to ring the gargantuan, “World’s Largest Tip Bell” for a small contribution.
100% of these contributions go directly to the Southeastern Guide Dogs. Southeastern Guide Dogs transforms lives by creating and nurturing extraordinary partnerships between people and dogs. They breed, raise, and train elite guide dogs, service dogs, and skilled companion dogs and provide life-changing services for people with vision loss, veterans with disabilities, and children with significant challenges. The organization offers premier dogs and lifetime follow-up services at no cost. Since 1982, they have successfully created thousands of guide and service dog teams throughout the U.S. and currently oversee the well-being of over 1,200 puppies and dogs.
