Ninety Nine Restaurants announced today that they raised over $426,000 for local chapters of the Boys & Girls Club in communities throughout New England and New York during the company’s Boys & Girls Club Fundraising Month in October. The Danvers Ninety Nine raised over $6,500 for the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem was one of the top 10 restaurants out of the 105 Ninety Nine locations during the month of October to raise the most money for a local Boys & Girls Club chapter.
“Each year, the month of October is a special month for us at the Ninety Nine and this year is no exception,” said Ninety Nine Restaurants President John Grady. “We are passionate about our relationship with the Boys & Girls Club as we enter into our 16th year of service to the organization. That passion is evident when you look at the astounding success of our fundraiser, which was made possible not only from our dedicated team members, but our loyal guests who have shown astounding generosity.
Funds were raised for local chapters of the Boys & Girls Club during the month of October through the following ways:
o Add $1, $3, $5 or more to guest check;
o Purchase a commemorative bracelet for $5;
o Order the Boys & Girls Club Sandwich or Boys & Girls Club Entrée and $1 from the sale of that item was donated to the closest Club chapter;
Each Ninety Nine Restaurant has a relationship at the local level with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the oldest and largest organization that has a primary mission of service to youth, and the public school system in the community. “We are involved with almost 70 local chapters of the Boys & Girls Clubs and are very proud to have set a new company-wide fundraising record this year for a cause so important to us. We sincerely thank everyone who generously donated, as we know these funds will go to encouraging positive youth development and accommodate thousands of youths daily,” added Grady.
