More than 16 million American children face hunger. This September, BRAVO! Cucina Italiana and BRIO Tuscan Grille locations across the nation are joining thousands of restaurants nationwide to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign by raising funds in their restaurants.
From Sunday, Sept. 15 through Monday, Sept. 30, 2013, all BRAVO! Cucina Italiana and BRIO Tuscan Grille locations across the U.S. will offer their guests the opportunity to donate funds to the No Kid Hungry campaign. Every donation counts, and when guests donate $5 or more, they will receive $5 off their next visit of $15 or more, valid thru Oct. 31, 2013. It’s easy to donate, as guests will be able to add their donation to their bill upon checkout.
Also from Sunday, Sept. 15 through Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, BRAVO | BRIO Restaurant Group, Inc., (NASDAQ: BBRG), owner and operator of BRAVO! Cucina Italiana and BRIO Tuscan Grille, will donate $1 to the No Kid Hungry campaign for every new “Like” on BRAVO! Cucina Italiana’s and BRIO Tuscan Grille’s Facebook pages (up to a maximum of $2,500 per brand).
“At BBRG and each and every one of our restaurants nationwide, we make giving back to important causes one of our greatest priorities,” said BBRG Director, President and Chief Executive Officer Saed Mohseni. “By participating in Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign, we are proud to be a part of the nationwide effort to end childhood hunger.”For more information on BBRG, BRAVO!
