Buffalo Exchange – Tokens for Bags 

Buffalo Exchange has graciously selected us to be a recipient of their Tokens for Bags® program from July through December 2023. You can now donate to Pilot Light just by shopping at Buffalo Exchange Wicker Park (1478 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60622) in Chicago. Instead of a plastic bag, the Tokens for Bags® program offers every customer who makes a purchase one “token” valued at five cents (the cost to produce a bag) to donate to one of several local charities selected by the store. The program has generated over $926,025 for hundreds of local nonprofit organizations since 1994 and has saved over 18.5 million plastic bags from the landfill. 



Apologue will donate 2% of sales of their Persimmon and Gold Fashioned products to Pilot Light!

Persimmon is a complex, bittersweet liqueur with hints of spice, citrus and rhubarb. The Gold Fashioned is luxury, limited-release ready-to-drink cocktail was crafted using 8-year Kentucky Bourbon with 5-year Straight Indiana Straight Rye Whiskey and other gold-standard ingredients sourced from the six inhabited continents.

Both are available at Foxtrot and Binny’s locations. Prefer to order online? Order Persimmon bittersweet liqueur online here and order the Gold Fashioned, the world’s first luxury ready-to-drink cocktail, online here
