Local Franchisee Donating Portion of $5 Real Big Deal Sales on 11/30 to College Scholarship for Valley High School
With the holiday season right around the corner, one of Church’s most involved franchisees will be treating guests in Las Vegas a chance to give and receive with a scholarship fundraiser. On Thursday, November 30th from 4pm to 8pm, a portion of all $5 Real Big Deal sales will be donated to the Church’s Partners Foundation to fund two college scholarships for two qualified, local Valley High School students. Guests will also have the chance to get a little something back in return for their acts of kindness with prizes and giveaways available throughout the event.
“As a brand, we feel a great sense of pride when our franchisees Do the Right Thing by taking the initiative to give back to their communities, especially when it supports families through education,” said Joe Christina, Chief Executive Officer of Church’s Chicken. “Tony Lutfi is very active in his community, whether it’s providing meals for first responders in times of crisis, supporting his team members in their own personal career development, or his many years of participation in the Church’s Scholars program. His desire to give a local student a chance at college is just one more example of how committed Tony is to his neighbors.”
The fundraiser will take place at the Church’s Chicken restaurant located at 601 N. Rancho Drive, Las Vegas, NV. Proceeds of every $5 Real Big Deal ordered between the hours of 4 pm – 8 pm will directly benefit the Church’s Scholars program. Guests ordering the $5 Real Big Deal will have a chance to spin the prize wheel and win free Church’s merchandise like hats, t-shirts, free-meal coupons and other giveaways. No purchase is necessary to receive prizes or giveaways.
“I’m a Las Vegas resident myself,” said Lutfi. “So, it is important to me to see my guests, friends, and neighbors succeed together. What starts as a college scholarship for one young person can set off a chain reaction of growth and positivity for a whole community. That’s what this event is all about, and we can’t wait to see everyone at Church’s.”
“Higher education is of critical importance the communities in which we sever and our guests,” said Ed Brett, President, Church’s Partners Foundation, Inc. “We are honored that so many members of the Church’s community including franchisees like Tony believe in the program and give back so willingly.”
