October 22, 2020 — Peak Restaurants is proud to support local organizations that serve our communities daily. With the help of our guests, we raised funds for two causes near and dear to our hearts this October. Below is a recap of the fundraisers.
Susan G. Komen
To support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Peak raised $1,963.50—over $400 more than last year's event—for local Susan G. Komen affiliates in October.
Peak Restaurants' 10 East Tennessee-area McAlister's and 3 Blue Ridge Virginia-area locations participated in Susan G. Komen's annual Dine Out for the Cure event on October 5th, donating 10% of sales from 5 p.m. to close to the organization.
The result of the fundraiser was a donation of $1,517.70 to Susan G. Komen East Tennessee and $445.80 to Susan G. Komen Virginia Blue Ridge.
We thank guests for partnering with us in this event, and we appreciate the work that Susan G. Komen has done and continues to do raising breast cancer awareness and research.

Down Syndrome Awareness Groups
October is also Down Syndrome Awareness Month, and Peak held fundraisers at our locations across East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia for local Down syndrome awareness organizations, donating 10% of sales from 5 p.m. to close on October 21.
McAlister’s in the Knoxville area raised $1,800 for the Down Syndrome Awareness Group of East Tennessee in Knoxville, a parent-initiated organization developed to provide information and support to families of individuals with Down syndrome and to raise awareness within the community about the abilities of individuals with Down syndrome and the benefits of their inclusion into society.
Proceeds from the event at Tri-Cities McAlister’s—which raised $582.60—go to FRIENDS, a support group in the Tri-Cities that promotes community understanding and acceptance of individuals with Down syndrome.
McAlister’s in the Virginia Blue Ridge area raised $518.90 for the Down Syndrome Association of Roanoke (DSAR), a non-profit that provides advocacy and recreational activities for those with Down syndrome as well as educational opportunities and support.
We are grateful to partner again this year with each of these organizations.
