Charity Nominations for the 12 Days of Giving Sale start TODAY!

Nominations for the 12 Days of Giving
annual gift card sale start today!

As soon as the weather turns cool, we get really excited at BRAVO!, Broad Street, and Sal & Mookie’s.
Why?
Because it means our favorite time of the year is almost here: our 12 Days of Giving Gift Card Sale! Every year, we host our annual, 12-day gift card sale where you get to save, and we get to give back to our community.

The details: you buy 3 gift cards, and you get the 4th one free. Then we give 10% of the value of your purchase to 1 of 12 community-nominated charities. And you get to tell us which one! Now that’s a sweet deal.

Plus, the top 12 charities will be assigned a month in 2023 where they will be our sponsored charity.

  • Every Monday is Coffee Monday at Broad Street – the sponsored charity will receive 10% from Broad Street for drip coffee sales.
  • Every Tuesday is Shake It Up Tuesday at Sal & Mookie’s Jackson – the sponsored charity will receive 10% from milkshake sales.
  • Plus, Corks for Charity at BRAVO! – when a guest buys a bottle of wine at BRAVO! they can donate their cork to charity. At the end of the month, we draw (2) corks, and the guests who donated receive a $25 gift card and the charity receives a check for the price of the bottle of wine.

And for the last 7 years, because of YOU, we have given away over $10,000 in gift cards every year. That’s $10,000 to feed vulnerable populations, support volunteers, and raise much-needed funds. Because of you.

So now, we need you to roll up your sleeves and… nominate.

Yep, we need you to take ONE WHOLE MINUTE to nominate your favorite Metro-Jackson charity to become part of the 12 Days of Giving.

Think you can handle it?

Nominations must be in by midnight on October 31st!

Good luck!

Starting this Thursday, August 26, 2021, the Jackson Zoo will be offering One Free Child Admission for an adult showing their new or completed COVID-19 vaccination card and their valid ID at admission. Click Here for complete details.

Please Get Vaccinated!

As the COVID-19 numbers rise in our community, we are actively encouraging all who can get any one of the free vaccines for the safety of all our friends and families. By getting vaccines and continuing to mask, we CAN lower the need for hospitalizations due to the Delta variant, and hopefully, give some relief to our heroic medical teams. In addition, it will keep our community from having to go into a second and even more debilitating lockdown. Mangia Bene restaurants started the “Let’s Keep Mississippi Open!” campaign in July, offering $10 gift cards to guests showing a recent vaccination card. Kinkade’s Fine Clothing, Duling Hall, and others have joined in to offer drawings of their goods, well.

Starting this Thursday (August 26th), we are offering ONE FREE CHILD ADMISSION for an adult showing their new or completed COVID-19 vaccination card and their valid ID at admission. We are also requiring ALL guests (vaccinated or not) to wear their masks inside the Gift Shop, inside the Backyard Creatures house, under the Splash Pad lounge, and whenever they are within 6 feet of other staff or guests or animal exhibits. Details on how to get the free admission along with purchasing tickets with credit/debit cards (or reserving and paying with cash on arrival) can be found on our SHOP page.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

July 26, 2021

LET’S STAY OPEN MISSISSIPPI PROMOTION

KEITH KINKADE OF KINKADE’S FINE CLOTHING TEAMS UP WITH JEFF GOOD OF BRAVO!, BROAD STREET AND SAL & MOOKIE’S TO OFFER INCENTIVES FOR CENTRAL MISSISSIPPIANS TO GET VACCINATED

Jackson, MS, July 26, 2021 – With the exponential growth of the Delta Variant of Covid-19 monopolizing the news, Keith Kinkade wanted to do something to help keep Mississippi moving forward and keep businesses open. He approached Jeff Good and suggested a partnership promotion where central Mississippians getting their first vaccine shot could get a treat from Jeff’s restaurants and a great suit from Kinkade’s.

“We’ve all been through a lot this past year. And we have come so far as a state… but we need to do better,” states Keith Kinkade, the owner of Kinkade’s Fine Clothing. “We are pro-business, and we are pro-Mississippi. And Mississippi is made up of the best people in the world. So, we wanted to come up with a way to do our part to help increase the vaccination rate in our community.”

With Mississippi vaccination rates well below the national average, Keith and Jeff came up with the idea to incentivize those choosing to get their first vaccine shot with a $10 gift card to BRAVO!, Broad Street, and Sal & Mookie’s as well as a chance to win a tailored suit from Kinkade’s!

“If you got your first vaccination shot on July 23rd or thereafter, just bring your card to one of our businesses: Kinkade’s, Sal & Mookie’s in the District, BRAVO!, Broad Street or Sal & Mookie’s in Madison, and we will give you a free $10 gift card!,” Jeff Good explains. “That’s not all! One lucky person out of every 100 will receive a free tailored suit from Kinkade’s! So, the more people who get vaccinated, the more suits will be given away! More gift cards, more suits, and better vaccination rates… it’s win/win!”

The promotion starts Friday, July 23rd, and will run indefinitely.

“We hope our efforts entice some folks who have not gotten around to getting their vaccine to doing so,” adds Keith Kinkade. “We just want to do our part to keep Mississippi open!”

Participants will need to bring their official vaccination card, dated no earlier than July 23, 2021, for the first shot, to one of the host businesses: Kinkade’s, Sal & Mookie’s in the District, BRAVO!, Broad Street, or Sal & Mookie’s in Madison to receive their free $10 gift card. At that time, they will be able to register for the free suit drawings. A new drawing will take place with every 100 entries. Participants can only enter once and may only receive one free gift card.
