LongHorn Steakhouse Invites Families To Give A Book, Get A Free Kid's Meal In Celebration Of International Children's Book Day





ORLANDO, Fla., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LongHorn Steakhouse is inviting families to participate in the restaurant's Give a Book, Get a Free Steakhouse Kid's Meal offer to celebrate International Children's Book Day on Tuesday, April 2, 2013.  To participate, all families have to do is donate a children's book, suitable for ages 5-12, on April 2 at any local LongHorn.  In return, participating guests will receive one free kid's meal from LongHorn's kid's menu with the purchase of one adult entree.

Books collected will be donated to local Boys & Girls Clubs across the country to add to their libraries for the kids they serve.  The program is part of LongHorn's ongoing efforts to give back to the communities they serve.

"LongHorn Steakhouse has a proud history of being a good neighbor," said Todd Burrowes, EVP of Operations.  "We created this special kid's meal offer as a way to encourage families to spend time together, give children an opportunity to help other children in their local community and to continue our long-term, ongoing support of Boys & Girls Clubs of America."

LongHorn supports Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) throughout the year through local grants, school supply drives, holiday dinners and other fundraising events to support programs that encourage young people to achieve their academic goals and dreams.

"LongHorn's celebration of International Children's Book Day is a great example of our partners' dedication to ensuring our young people achieve academic success," said Kimberly Boyd, vice president of education for BGCA. "The donation of books will help provide additional resources for our Boys & Girls Clubs to develop fun, educational programs to encourage youth. Socially conscious programs, such as this, foster greater community engagement, while helping develop great futures for more of America's youth."
