We were honored to get the opportunity to name It's-a-Burger our Business Partner of the Month for July!
It’s-a-Burger Founder Gene Gumfory has supported Serve Denton over the past several years, both personally and through his businesses. He owns multiple Sonic Drive-Ins throughout North Texas and his newest restaurant, It’s-a-Burger, was a top sponsor for our annual gala, Celebration.
In addition to his sponsorship, Gene Gumfory donated multiple items to the Celebration silent auction and has been a faithful Circle of Support member over the past few years. He has generously participated in our ScripZone gift card program, where a portion of the proceeds from Sonic Drive-In gift cards sold benefit Serve Denton. Gene is always willing to help out and support Serve Denton any way he is asked, most often anonymously, keeping Serve Denton as the primary focus.
Serve Denton recently joined forces to start a new program called Employ to Empower (E2E). E2E is a collaborative project between local nonprofit agencies and the City of Denton. The goal of the program is to provide jobs to those who are homeless, giving them the skills they need to find permanent work. Gene Gumfory has committed to give all of the participants an interview to work at It's-a-Burger once they graduate the program. When we say Gene is committed to giving people a hand up in Denton, we really mean it. He puts his money where his mouth is.
Serve Denton is thankful for It’s-a-Burger’s commitment to advance our mission to support nonprofits that open doors for people to become self-sufficient.
