U.S. Ponderosa and Bonanza Steakhouses To Hold "Buy One, Give One" Fundraisers on Monday, October 23, to Benefit Victims of Hurricanes Irma and MariaMillions of victims of Hurricanes Irma and Maria that devastated Florida and Puerto Rico in September continue to struggle to rebuild their lives.  To support the ongoing relief efforts in these regions, participating Ponderosa and Bonanza Steakhouse restaurants in the United States will hold an all-day, “Buy One, Give One,” fundraiser on Monday, October 23.  For each made-to-order entrée or buffet sold on that day during normal operating hours, participating Ponderosa and Bonanza Steakhouses will donate $1.00 to the Salvation Army.

“For more than 50 years, we have worked together as family at our Ponderosa and Bonanza restaurants, and we know together we can do something meaningful to benefit hurricane victims in Florida and Puerto Rico,” said Brian Ripley, president and CEO of Homestyle Dining, which franchises the two brands in addition to a new full-service dining concept called Bonanza Steak & BBQ. “In Puerto Rico, especially, where our valued franchisees employ over approximately 1,000 team members, the devastation was immeasurable and it could take months, if not years, for that island to rebuild.  We wanted – and needed – to hold this fundraiser to show our support for those affected in both Puerto Rico and Florida.”
