Shane’s Rib Shack Raises over $10,000 for the Georgia Transplant Foundation for Third Consecutive Year

FLOWERY BRANCH, GA (July 26, 2012) – Today, Shane’s Rib Shack presents a check for over $10,000 to the Georgia Transplant Foundation at the Shane’s Rib Shack Flowery Branch location. For the third consecutive year, Shane’s Rib Shack has partnered with The Georgia Transplant Foundation (GTF), to help raise money to support transplant recipients and donors throughout the Nation. Participating Shane’s Rib Shack locations raise money by donating $0.10 per drink sold in April and May to The Georgia Transplant Foundation to support their cause.

The Georgia Transplant Foundation, founded in 1992, provides financial, educational, and emotional support to transplant candidates, recipients, living donors, and their families throughout the state of Georgia. However, while the majority of their efforts are based in Atlanta, the foundation is able to reach out to those in need outside of Georgia, as long as one party– the recipient or donor - is a Georgia resident.

In three years, Shane’s Rib Shack is proud to have raised over $30,000 for the Georgia Transplant Foundation and plan to continue their support for years to come. Shane’s Rib Shack founder, Shane Thompson, has always been an avid community supporter. For updates on Shane’s Rib Shack’s community involvement, store openings and promotions follow Shane’s Rib Shack on Facebook, Twitter or visit their website at www.shanesribshack.com.

Shane’s Rib Shack currently has locations throughout the state of Georgia, including metro Atlanta, Athens, Brunswick, Hinesville, St. Simons Island, Statesboro and Savannah. Additionally, Shane’s has restaurants in the following states: Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Arizona, Louisiana, Virginia, Maryland, Florida, Kentucky and New York.
