bd’s Mongolian Grill Joins in Fundraiser to Support Folds of Honor Foundation
Company’s Veterans Day Campaign Helps to Support Families of Veterans
October 29, 2018 // Franchising.com // DALLAS - The men and women of America’s armed forces put their lives on the line every day to protect our freedom. In recognition of their sacrifice and service, popular create-your-own stir-fry restaurant bd’s Mongolian Grill is continuing its tradition of supporting Folds of Honor, an organization dedicated to providing educational scholarships to spouses and children of America's fallen and disabled service-members. bd’s is joined by fellow Mongolian Concepts brands, Genghis Grill and FlatTop Grill, in this year’s fundraiser.
From Monday, October 29 through Veterans Day on Sunday, November 11, guests at bd’s Mongolian Grill locations can buy a $2 pin-up to support Folds of Honor. Guests will be able to write-in who they “dedicate” the pin-up to (Active, Veteran or Family Member). In addition, on Veterans Day, each bd’s location will donate 10 percent of food sales to support a local Folds of Honor chapter.
“At bd’s, we pride ourselves on our culture of giving and supporting our local communities, especially through offering support for individuals who need help the most,” said Doug Willmarth, Chief Marketing Officer and nine-year Navy Veteran. “It is a privilege to continue to stand with Folds of Honor to help our nation’s heroes and their families.”
“The support from bd’s and Mongolian Concepts and their dedication to Folds of Honor is amazing to see and helps us to continue contributing to the families of those who have sacrificed so much defending our great nation,” said Folds of Honor representative Chick Linskey. “We look forward to this year’s fundraiser and giving people the opportunity to eat great food, for a cause.”
