Bar Owners Create Organization for Families Affected by Diseases

The Rush bar on 41st St isn’t just about having a place to meet up with friends. The owners are also committed to their new fundraiser organization that collects money to give to those living with life-altering illnesses.

Co-owner Stephanie Grey says Rush 4 the Causes was created because she and her husband wanted to do something for families that they often see come into their business. Grey says although the bar has stood in Sioux Falls for decades, the new organization was just started a couple months ago. So far, Grey says they’ve raised money through their progressive karaoke competition. Coming up in December, they’ll be doing a bartender battle, limo rides, and also freewill donation events. Wednesday night, they’ll be giving a check to their first family, who has a member dealing with cancer.
