299 bakery locations to participate in week-long event to end childhood hunger in America.
WASHINGTON, DC, September 16, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Bruegger's Enterprises Inc. will join thousands of restaurants this month in a fight against childhood hunger during Share Our Strength's annual Great American Dine Out, a week-long national restaurant event in cities across the United States. Scheduled from September 19-25, 2010, the event raises funds for No Kid Hungry, Share Our Strength's national campaign to end childhood hunger in America by 2015 and help connect kids to the food they need to live healthy, active lives.
Bruegger's is asking its guests to join in this important cause. Beginning September 19, guests can purchase coupon books in any of the chain's 299 locations. A $20 value, the book is filled with discounts and free items to be used throughout the year. Most importantly, all proceeds from the $3 book will go directly to Share our Strength and its important mission of ending childhood hunger. More details are available at www.brueggers.com.
The Great American Dine Out raised nearly $800,000 in 2009 from 4,000 participating restaurants. Each year, generous restaurant partners donate a portion of the week's sales, offer special promotions or collect donations from their customers. This is Bruegger's second year of participation, and the bakery cafe operator hopes to double its contribution and raise at least $25,000 for the worthy cause.
"Bruegger's continually supports its neighbors in every community we serve, through national efforts and local fundraisers," said James J. Greco, CEO of Bruegger's. "Great American Dine Out gives us a way to engage customers in a worthy cause and to join with our industry colleagues to make a real difference in the lives of children."
