NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--O’Charley’s announced today that, with the support of its Atlanta-area guests, the classic American restaurant has donated $25,309 to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (Children’s), one of the largest not-for-profit Children’s healthcare systems in the country. O’Charley’s team members gathered on Friday at the Acworth, Ga location with the Children’s Vice President of Corporate Development, Rob Bentley, Children’s Director of Annual Events and Cause Marketing, Sharon Robinson and several families helped by the organization to celebrate the generosity of O’Charley’s patrons and the partnership’s success.
Throughout the month of December, the Atlanta area O’Charley’s locations offered a five dollar O’Charley’s voucher to guests who donated to Children’s. The Acworth location was the top earning location, raising more than $4,100. Children’s expressed its gratitude to the Acworth O’Charley’s staff with heart felt thank you.
“We are so grateful for O’Charley’s’ generosity and want to thank them for their enthusiasm and leadership to support the children in our local community,” said Rob Bentley, Vice President of Corporate Development at Children’s. “We especially want to show appreciation for the team in Acworth and their guests for helping us make a healthier tomorrow for the children of Atlanta.”
Dollars raised from O’Charley’s will benefit the Feeding Disorders program of the Marcus Autism Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The Feeding Disorders Program at Marcus Autism Center is one of only a few facilities in the country — and the only program in the Southeast — to offer empirically supported, intensive day treatment for children with feeding disorders. Regardless of whether a child has autism or a related disorder, the program provides interdisciplinary assessment and behavior treatment of children between eight months and 21 years of age with feeding disorders.
“O’Charley’s is proud to support Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and the incredible impact they’ve made in the local community for more than a century,” Chad Coghlan, O’Charley’s Operations Director. “Founded as a place where families can gather for a meal, we at O’Charley’s love the sense of community Children’s has established in the area and all of the hard work they put into taking care of our families and guests.”
O’Charley’s has a longstanding history of supporting its local neighborhoods and encouraging community involvement thanks to initiatives like its Hometown Hero program which has honored more than 160 local military individuals to date.
