The West Carmel Red Robin (9965 N. Michigan Road, redrobin.com) is hosting an Indianapolis-area fundraiser on Wednesday 29 February for Cooking with the Troops. The restaurant is donating ten percent of their proceeds for the day to the charity to help support U.S. and Allied troops, their families, and caregivers.
“We are proud to help an Indiana-based charity that is doing so much for out troops and veterans,” says Sean Keefe, general manager of the restaurant. “Everyone on our team is excited to be involved with a charity the gives back to our deserving troops. To help them as they help with things from nutrition to jobs is something we are glad to do, especially given their upcoming event on D-Day.”
The fundraiser will run from 11 am to 10 pm, and the afternoon will see something special. From 2-4 PM, Indianapolis-area bestselling author Michael Z. Williamson will be signing 100 copies of his books, given to those coming in and buying a meal in support of Cooking with the Troops. The books are a donation from publisher Baen Books.
“We can’t begin to thank Red Robin enough for this,” states C. Blake Powers, CEO of Cooking with the Troops. “We have requests for a number of events from troops and wounded, some young veterans who will be catering a very special reception at Normandy on D-Day, and are working to help get a chef to Afghanistan to cook for some of the troops out in remote locations. Doing all this takes money and support, and this will be a huge help to those efforts.”
