September 04, 2008 // // - CALGARY, Alberta -- Joey's Only Seafood Restaurants will be making a splash across Canada in September with their famous yellow Fat Fish as part of a national fundraiser for the Alzheimer Society of Canada.

Throughout September, any Joey's customer making a $1 contribution to the Alzheimer Society will receive a $1-off coupon for any menu entrée on their next visit to Joey's. Customers also receive a yellow paper Fat Fish on which they can sign their name to show their support in the battle against Alzheimer's disease. Each signed paper Fat Fish is displayed on the walls of Joey's restaurants.

Joeys wall of yellow fat fish "This month-long campaign is one of our biggest fundraisers for the Alzheimer Society and Joey's is committed both locally and nationally in the communities in which we operate," says Kathy Campitelli, VP Marketing. "We hope there will be a sea of yellow Fat Fishes in all of our restaurants by the end of September."
