Helping to Make a Difference

Giving back to the community is an essential part of our core values. We understand that our success as a business is closely tied to the well-being of our community, and we are honoured to have the opportunity to give back in meaningful ways. Whether it’s through hosting charity events, supporting local nonprofits with gift cards, or simply volunteering our time and resources, we are committed to making a difference in the lives of those around us. We recognize the power and importance that exposure can do for these initiatives through messaging at our restaurants. We’re proud to be a part of the community, and we’re dedicated to doing our part to make it a better place.

Here are a few of the most recent projects that we have been privileged to support.

Sorrentino’s Compassion House

Several years ago, we became aware of a significant need here in Edmonton. Women in northern Alberta and the North, who are facing the challenges of breast cancer, must travel to Edmonton to receive diagnosis and treatment. This often means leaving their families, friends and homes for an extended period at a time when they need their support, while also incurring significant personal expenses for accommodation.

Sorrentino’s gift, the largest that the Capital Campaign had ever received, enabled the construction of Sorrentino’s Compassion House, which has been providing accommodation and support to those women and their families since September 2003. Not only do those who require accommodation benefit from the home, but so do hundreds of patients and their families from Edmonton who wish to utilize Sorrentino’s Compassion House as a resource and support centre.

Expansion and Renovation of
Sorrentino’s Compassion House

Sorrentino’s Compassion House underwent a major renovation and expansion from Sept. 2012 – Aug. 2013. The house re-opened to women traveling to Edmonton for cancer treatment in Sept. 2013.
