On August 18, The Gunter Group will proudly sponsor the annual Checking For Charity Beef & Beer event at On Deck Sports Bar & Grill in the Pearl District. Checking For Charity is a non-profit organization dedicated to “changing the world through competitive hockey events.” Matt Bader, Senior Consultant at The Gunter Group, co-founded Checking For Charity in 2009 while serving in the United States Air Force.  The organization hosts hockey tournaments and fundraising events that combine participants’ passion for hockey with a desire to raise money and awareness for worthy causes. Each year, teams that enter the tournament declare a charity they will represent; the combined proceeds from the Beef & Beer event and the tournament are then donated to those charities.

The Gunter Group is proud to once again sponsor this event not only in support of a team member, but as a way to give back to the local community. Matt Bader is thrilled to have the support of the firm once more. “I am so happy that The Gunter Group team is stepping up again to help make the Checking For Charity Beef & Beer event a success,” he said. “Having leaders and peers that are invested in a cause that makes a difference in people’s lives is such a rewarding thing to be a part of. I am very grateful!”

Come join The Gunter Group at this family-friendly event for a variety of food and drinks, a silent auction, prize drawings, and a 50/50 raffle to help raise money and awareness for the represented charity organizations. Please visit to purchase your tickets and learn more about the organization.
