Community Participation

At ORSO, we feel being a part of the Alaska community is an honor and a privilege. As a proud member of this special Alaskan family, we embrace our responsibility to support and give back whenever possible. Since our first days in 2000, it has been our tradition to support more than 75 Alaskan organizations who share our values and our commitment to community.

The American Cancer Society

We work with the American Cancer Society to assure Alaskans coming to Anchorage from all over the state for cancer treatment get a little red carpet treatment as well. Through the American Cancer Society we provide dinner, allowing brave folks from all over our great state to put aside their worries and enjoy a special night on the town with great food and company.

Blood Bank of Alaska

We host a quarterly “Pint for a Pint” Blood Drive here at the restaurant for the Blood Bank of Alaska. We are proud that our “Pint for a Pint” drives collect more blood than any other mobile blood drive in the region. In our drive, we offer a free pint of soda (sorry, we can’t offer our beer) for every pint of blood donated.

We also respond to hundreds of requests for gift certificates used to raise money for charitable organizations and we’re pleased to participate. Our certificates have helped our local charities raise literally thousands of dollars to support the people of Alaska and beyond. Below you can see these great charities and we invite you to click on the links to learn more about them and even offer your support as well.
