The Bunnery Gives Back


In 1975 a bakery opened just off the Jackson Town Square in a small log cabin that was once a blacksmith’s shop. Five years later, in 1980, The Bunnery Bakery & Restaurant opened it’s doors and became a great place for breakfast and lunch. The Bunnery has been a staple in Jackson since the 1970’s, and they have been one of the largest food sponsors of Old Bill’s Fun Run for the past 10 years.

In 2006, The Bunnery began donating all of the ingredients for the breakfast burritos that used to be served during the event. When the organization switched to yogurt parfaits in 2012, The Bunnery continued to donate all of the yogurt, berries, and their homemade granola. In addition to The Bunnery, there are also a few other restaurants around town that help out with food and beverage needs for the run. The Wort Hotel, Pinky G’s, Persephone, Pearl Street Bagels, Great Northern Coffee and Local help provide coffee, juice, water, and plates.

On Sept. 10 Old Bill’s will be taking off. The race/walk starts at 10 a.m., and the donation period is open until Sept. 16. If you have a favorite nonprofit in town, please help them out by donating. After you have finished your race make sure to get a delicious parfait donated by The Bunnery, or swing in for lunch.

For the past 20 years, Old Bill’s has been attracting more than 4,000 people to come to Jackson to run/walk in this great event that helps out local charities. The day is filled with a Fun Run and Walk, entertainment, food and informational booths. The magic of a community celebration, combined with ease of giving, has increased awareness about the work of local organizations and has enabled them to raise over $121 million in the last 19 years.
