Union City Grille in the Community

Here at Union City Grille, we feel that the very best way to be successful and relevant to this city is to be an active participant in all aspects of city life.

In addition to participating in neighborhood and charity events, Union City Grille has also, proactively, brought in charities to generate unique, fun and well-promoted on-site events – with a dual goal of assisting the charities in reaching financial goals and generating community awareness of their missions.

In September 2010, in honor of its second anniversary, UCG rolled out its 52 Charities in 52 Weeks initiative. Our signature program, Dine In for Charity, raised over $8000 for charities last year. The initiative is now in year two.
