Genghis Grill Hosts Fundraiser to Support Families of America’s Heroes
The premier create-your-own stir-fry chain partners with nonprofit Folds of Honor for fundraiser Oct. 29-Nov. 11
October 25, 2018 // Franchising.com // DALLAS - Genghis Grill is honoring our service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Starting Oct. 29, Genghis Grill guests can donate $2 or more to Folds of Honor to raise money for educational scholarships for families of America’s fallen and disabled service members. Fundraiser participants can show their support for our country’s heroes by signing a symbolic folded flag and pinning it to the wall at Genghis Grill, across the nation. 100% of the pin-up proceeds will be donated to Folds of Honor.
“Genghis Grill appreciates and supports our men and women in uniform,” said Doug Willmarth, Chief Marketing Officer and nine-year Navy Veteran. “We believe this is one issue all Americans can agree upon. Genghis Grill is committed to supporting Folds of Honor year around by supporting local military families when the need arises. This fall, we invite our guests to join us in supporting Folds of Honor in educating the families of America’s fallen and deceased service members.”
The pin-up campaign will run through Nov. 11 at all Genghis Grill locations. On Sunday, Nov. 11, Genghis Grill will conclude its fundraiser by donating 10 percent of the days proceeds to Folds of Honor.
“We are excited for what the partnership with Genghis Grill and its guests will do for Folds of Honor and the families we support,” said Chick Linski, SVP of the Folds of Honor Foundation. “Our organization wouldn’t be considered a high-performing non-profit if it weren’t for the generous support of extraordinary companies like Genghis Grill.”
Since 2007, Folds of Honor has been dedicated to its mission to provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members. Folds of Honor uses the folded flag as its logo because it reflects the organization’s mission - to honor the sacrifice of America’s heroes, while giving hope to the bearers of their legacy.
