Eat at the Columbia & help support Alpha House
The Columbia will donate 5% of all guests’ September lunch and dinner checks to the charitable organizations chosen by their customers. Our name will be listed on the ballots at the Columbia Restaurant Ybor City, Columbia Cafe on the Riverwalk in Tampa at the Tampa Bay History Center and Columbia Restaurant Cafe at Tampa International Airport.

“We started this program in 1998 as a way to help many of the worthy non-profit groups that are so important to our communities,” said 4th generation family member and president Richard Gonzmart. “We thought the best way to do this was by letting our customers get involved in selecting the organizations. The process is simple. They just put a check mark next to one of the charitable organizations listed on a form we provide. They turn it in to their server. We do the rest, and donate 5% to the charity.”
Over the past 18 years, the Columbia Restaurant Community Harvest has donated more than $1.8 million to non-profit organizations throughout Florida. Contributions are made in the form of Columbia gift certificates.
Remember to eat lunch and dinner at the Columbia as an easy way to increase the donation at no additional charge to you, all month long, in September!
