We don’t brag often, but the time has come! Some amazing partnerships have recently formed and we want to shout our excitement on the Back Burner blog!
Tundra has joined hands with the Big Red F Restaurant Group and Jax Fish House Boulder to support the Veterans Expeditions – a Colorado based non-profit that uses wilderness challenges to connect veterans, create community, and raise awareness. Their work supports the reintegration of veterans into society and empowers them to overcome the challenges many face following military service.
On Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013 Jax Fish House Boulder will host the First Annual High West Oyster Fest. Picture, if you will, 1,000 folks gathered at The Boulder Theater enjoying live music by local funk-phenomenon Juno What?!, slurping fresh oysters and sipping Odell Emersum Oyster Stout. There will be an Oyster Eating Contest and an Oyster Shucking Competition featuring the fastest shuckers from the finest oyster bars across the globe!
Proceeds from the High West Oyster Fest will go to the Veterans Expeditions. What a fun way to support such an amazing organization! Interested in attending? Get your tickets from the Boulder Theater.
Our next marvelous partnership is with the “I Have a Dream” Foundation of Boulder County. On April 27th and 28th beautiful and unique kitchens throughout Boulder will be featured, many with a culinary cooking theme. There will be demonstrations and cooking ideas — all in beautiful home and loft kitchen settings. Tundra is donating Chef Wear for the event!
All proceeds from the Kitchens are Cooking! Tour will support “I Have a Dream” Foundation of Boulder County’s Fitness for Life program – provides low-income children with life skills focused on nutrition and well-being, participation in a variety of recreational activities, and healthy after-school snacks so they can be successful in school and life.
Our third most recent partnership is with Milk + Bookies™ – a nationwide charitable organization that inspires children to give back, using books as its currency. March 10th marks the 4th Annual Story Time Celebration which is a family fun day featuring celebrity readers such as Ginnifer Goodwin from ABC TV Series Once Upon a Time, Max Greenfield AKA Schmidt from FOX’s TV Series New Girl and Adam Scott from NBC’s TV Series Parks and Rec. The event also has story inspired arts and crafts, photo flip books, literary characters, lunch (that’s where Tundra comes in – we donated the disposables!) and delicious milk and cookies!
Children do the giving and a giant bookstore is available for families to pick books, inscribe them with personal messages and then donate them back. Milk + Bookies then gives the books to local school children who simply have no books of their own.

Tundra’s 10th value is to “share the gains with our people, our customers and the community” and that is exactly what we intend to do! We are thrilled about our new partnerships and community involvement and can’t wait to see who walks through the door next…
