Sauce for a cause

Brunswick Heads’ ever-popular burger and fish & chips restaurant, Hooper’s, has recently launched a new initiative that’s set to do great things for the local community. And it’s all about the sauce!

‘Sauce for a Cause’ will give Hooper’s customers the option to make a coin donation for its range of sauces given out for free with every meal. Each month, Hooper’s will tally up the donations and forward the total amount to a local community organisation or charity.

‘We’ve always been given great feedback for our free sauces,’ says Hooper’s owner and operator, Jack Wright. ‘And they will always remain free. But we reckon people will love having the option of giving a little something back in return. It’s such a simple idea, but if we can give away hundreds, if not thousands, each month to local organisations that need it, then we’ll be really happy we’re doing a good thing.’

Formerly known as Brunswick Fish Bar, the newly revamped and renamed Hooper’s has been a town favourite over summer, offering burgers, fish & chips, ice-creams, frozen yogurts and more. Brunswick Heads Surf Life Saving Club President Craig Reid is a big fan of Hooper’s, for its food and for the ‘Sauce for a Cause’ concept, with the Surf Club chosen as the first organisation to receive a monthly donation.

‘All of us at the club love getting down to Hooper’s for a feed,’ says Craig. ‘And we’re really happy to see local businesses supporting us and other organisations around the area.’

The team at Hooper’s are looking forward to hearing from local organisations seeking to be included in the ‘Sauce for a Cause’ program. ‘If you have an organisation or a cause you want us to know about, just let us know,’ says Jack. ‘If you’re a charity, a club, a school, a local project doing good things, you can contact us via email or social media or just drop into the restaurant and say hello.’

For hungry customers, next time you’re in Hooper’s for a meal, keep an eye out for the donation box on the wall and consider making a contribution to a local cause in return for your sauce. And be sure to give the Hooper’s team a big thumbs up for being charitable with the ‘Sauce for a Cause’ idea.

The family owned and operated Hooper’s, at shop 10 The Terrace, Brunswick Heads, is open seven days a week from 11am to 8pm.
