SPRINGFIELD, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) proudly announces its partnership with the family owned and operated hospitality group, LM Restaurants, Inc., especially the Carolina Ale House and affiliated restaurants throughout the Southeast United States, and salutes LM Restaurants Inc. owner, Lou Moshakos, for his patriotism and dedication to all veterans and their families.
This Veterans Day 2015, in the spirit of “giving back,” Carolina Ale House held a fundraiser to benefit MOPH and mark the beginning of an exceptional partnership. Each location raised a grand total of $15,521.91 by donating 10% of their food sales to MOPH. Patriot members of MOPH invited all veterans to join them at the Carolina Ale House and raise a glass in memory of those with whom they served, and those who continue to defend our freedoms, at home and abroad.
Carolina Ale House was established in 1999 in Raleigh, NC, and now has a total of 74 locations throughout the southeast. Carolina Ale House is the better alternative to a typical sports bar with scratch made food, a family-friendly atmosphere and outstanding hospitality. Carolina Ale House’s extensive scratch kitchen goes beyond the usual sports bar fare and the restaurant’s high-energy atmosphere makes it the ultimate meeting place.
The organization now known as the “Military Order of the Purple Heart of the U.S.A. Inc.,” (MOPH) was formed in 1932 for the protection and mutual interest of all combat wounded veterans and active duty men and women who have received the decoration. Chartered by Congress, the MOPH is unique among Veteran Service Organizations in that all its members were wounded in combat. For this sacrifice, they were awarded the Purple Heart Medal. With grants from the MOPH Service Foundation, the MOPH and its Ladies Auxiliary promote Patriotism, Fraternalism, and the Preservation of America’s military history. Most importantly, through veteran service, they provide comfort and assistance to all veterans and their families, especially those requiring claims assistance with the VA, those who are homeless, and those requiring employment assistance. Programs of the MOPH include VA Volunteer Service, JROTC Leadership Award, Scholarships, Americanism, Purple Heart Trail and Cities, Welfare, and numerous community service programs, all with the objective to service veterans and their families.
