Mongolian Concepts presented check on Feb. 13
Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) After committing to honor America’s service men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our nation through a fundraiser for Folds of Honor, Genghis Grill presented a check of $23,000 to the nonprofit on Thursday, Feb. 13, on behalf of parent company Mongolian Concepts.
During its two-week fundraiser in November, Genghis Grill, along with Mongolian Concepts’ sister brands bd’s Mongolian Grill and Flat Top Grill, encouraged guests to donate $3 or more to Folds of Honor to raise money for educational scholarships for families of America’s fallen and disabled service members. Fundraiser participants showed their support for our country’s heroes by signing a symbolic folded flag and pinning it to the wall at Genghis Grill locations throughout the country, and 100% of the pin-up proceeds were donated to Folds of Honor.
“At Genghis Grill, we want to show our support to our courageous men and women in uniform by taking care of their families,” said Genghis Grill CMO and U.S. Navy Veteran Doug Willmarth. “We are proud that our guests joined us in raising support for such an impactful cause. It is an honor that we were able to donate this money raised to help fund scholarships for family members of wounded or fallen members of the military.”
“We are humbled to receive this donation as we recognize another successful year of partnering with Genghis Grill,” said Chick Linski, senior vice president of the Folds of Honor Foundation. “It is the generous effort of dedicated partners like Genghis Grill that allows Folds of Honor to support the education of families of America’s fallen and disabled service members.”
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.
