August 31st, 2015 – Tampa, FL – On September 11th the popular Winghouse restaurants, known for its chicken wings and unique waitress uniforms, will host a “Happy Hour for Heroes” event dedicated to helping support military families in need throughout the state of Florida. The regional restaurant chain has pledged to donate $1 for every beverage a customer purchases between 4PM to 8PM on Friday, September 11th.
The locally owned bar and grill started in Tampa, FL by former NFL and University of Florida football player, Crawford Ker, now has 24 locations with all locations participating in the “Happy Hour for Heroes” event on 9/11. With locations throughout the state including the Orlando, Tampa, Daytona Beach and Gainesville areas customers will have plenty of opportunities to join in on the event by purchasing a beverage of any kind, alcoholic or not.
Event organizer, Aaron Mighty, hopes the event will “give families an opportunity to come enjoy a great meal at a great restaurant while also helping support our military families. We want to encourage everyone to come out, especially our military, and see all the support their local community is giving them,” says Winghouse Director of Marketing, Arianna Marshall.
The goal of the event will be to raise $25,000 to help support post 9/11 military families in need throughout the state through the USA Cares non-profit organization. Social Media will play a big part in the event as patrons who post #HappyHourforHeroes or tweet @KersWinghouse or @USACaresOrg will also help raise money donated directly by local sponsors for every social media reach via tweet, hashtag, like or follow.
