Tilted Kilt Partners with Coaches vs. Cancer to Aid in the Fight Against Cancer
Celtic-themed Sports Pub Encourages Basketball Fans to “Take a Shot Against Cancer” with First Annual Fundraiser
March 01, 2017 // Franchising.com // Tempe, Ariz. – National restaurant chain Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery®, where “A Cold Beer Never Looked So Good®,” announced a partnership with the Coaches vs. Cancer program today in an effort to encourage Tilted Kilt guests and fans to come together for the fight to end cancer.
From February 20 through April 3, Tilted Kilt guests are invited to “Take a Shot Against Cancer” by adding onto their checks a $1, $3, or $5 donation – correlating with a free throw, 3-pointer, and slam dunk. Guests will receive a basketball paper cut-out to autograph and display on local Tilted Kilt pub walls as part of the Kilt Cares fundraiser. All proceeds will benefit Coaches vs. Cancer program.
“It’s an incredible opportunity for Tilted Kilt to partner with such a meaningful program as Coaches vs. Cancer,” said Tilted Kilt’s president, Ron Lynch. “We knew this would be natural fit for a partnership as our sports pubs and guests are gearing up for March Madness. The collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches has truly impacted the lives of so many, and we are excited to have the opportunity to use our passion for sports to help make a difference.”
The Coaches vs. Cancer program was founded in 1993 by former University of Missouri coach Norm Stewart. A collaboration between the National Association of Basketball Coaches and the American Cancer Society, the program works in partnership with coaches, teams, fans, and local communities to make a difference in the fight against cancer by encouraging them to get involved and make an impact. To date, the program has raised more than $100 million dollars for the American Cancer Society.
“Our partnership with Tilted Kilt gives local community members and fans the chance to be a part of the Coaches vs. Cancer team, while supporting the American Cancer Society's mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer,” said David Doan, VP, sports alliances. “Tilted Kilt is a hub for avid sports fans, and we are confident they will help us to defeat cancer—our ultimate opponent.”
