Wonder Whip in Owensboro has decided to donate 100% of its sales on Thursday to the Goodfellows Club to help children in need, according to owner Seth Woodward.

Woodward said every penny the restaurant makes Thursday will go to Goodfellows.

“We’ve had a good year here, our business has grown. We’ve been lucky enough to be able to get through this pandemic so far with no issues, unlike so many other businesses … so we just feel like we’re in a position where we can do some good and we can help impact some other people positively, so we want to give back to the community,” he said.

Woodward said, having grown up in Owensboro and seeing the work Goodfellows does for the community, he wanted to donate to the club.

“Children are some of the most vulnerable members of our society and any time a child’s life can be improved or brightened … I think that’s a great thing,” he said. “We want to support the Goodfellows Club specifically because 100% of the money they raise goes directly to children in our community.”

Wonder Whip is at 2434 Kentucky 144 in Owensboro and is open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday.

Contributions to the Goodfellows Club can be mailed to: Goodfellows Club, Messenger-Inquirer, P.O. Box 1480, Owensboro, KY 42302 or made online at www.goodfellows clubofowensboro.org/donate. Another link to donate online is https://app.mobilecause.com/form/3ebhXQ?vid=eoq13. Or, text RollCall to 41444.

Because of Covid-19, in-person donations at the Messenger-Inquirer are currently unavailable.
