October 30, 2018 — In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Peak Restaurants raised more than $1,600 for Susan G. Komen affiliates in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia this October.
The restaurant group, which operates 9 McAlister's Delis in East Tennessee and 3 in Southwest Virginia, participated in Susan G. Komen's Dine Out for the Cure fundraiser on October 8, donating 10% of each restaurants' sales from 5:00 p.m. to close to the non-profit.
The result of the fundraiser was a donation of $1,602.20 to Susan G. Komen affiliates: $1,221.10 to Susan G. Komen East Tennessee and $381.10 to Susan G. Komen Virginia Blue Ridge.
Susan G. Komen has been a major force in promoting breast cancer awareness and research since its founding in 1982. According to its website, the foundation has funded more than $988 million in research and more than $2.2 billion in education, screening, and treatment, serving millions in over 60 countries worldwide. Its efforts helped reduce deaths from breast cancer by 39% between 1989 and 2018.
We at Peak are proud to support breast cancer awareness and research alongside Susan G. Komen, and we thank our guests for partnering with us in this worthy cause.
