Omaha, Nebraska, February 26, 2013 — Sam & Louie’s has partnered with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) to promote their Shamrock Campaign, helping to raise funds to support research and treatment for neuromuscular disease.
The MDA’s Spring Pin Up Campaign will be available at all Sam & Louie’s locations where customers will be able to purchase Green ($1) or Gold ($5) Shamrocks as a donation to help send kids to camp. At MDA camp, kids with neuromuscular disease discover a world created specifically for them and meet many other kids sharing the same needs and experiences. The shamrocks will be sold and hung throughout the restaurants during the month of March.
"Seeing shamrocks makes me happy because I know people want to help find a cure. Shamrocks help send me and my friends to camp. Every time I see more shamrocks being put up, I know that people are helping families." -Braden, MDA Camper.
MDA is the world’s largest nonprofit health organization sponsoring research seeking the causes of and effective treatments for neuromuscular diseases. MDA research grants are currently supporting more than 250 projects worldwide.
“We’ve always believed in giving back to our communities which is a big part of our franchise operation. We’re happy to do our part in supporting the MDA and together with our customers, we are helping to make a difference,” said Tammy Nun, Sam & Louie’s Marketing Director.
