Supporting the Police Force

I’m so proud to say that the Fatburger location at 3763 Las Vegas Boulevard is offering free meals (burger, fries and drink) to our local officers this weekend on Sept. 19 and 20. This is Fatburger’s way of thanking those saving our lives during these hard times throughout our beloved country.

“These officers are out there every day putting themselves in harm’s way to protect us and it has never been more evident than in today’s world that they need to be shown some appreciation.” says owner, Darin Feinstein.

I completely agree with Darin! Always remember to show your support and love to those who keep us safe in our own home towns! How are you supporting your local officers?

Community Comes Together at Buffalo’s Cafe to Benefit Young Cancer Patient

Last week, I asked for anyone in the Loganville-Grayson area to stop by our Buffalo’s Cafe for a benefit event in honor of young cancer patient, Imogen Passman.

It sounds like the turn-out was pretty significant, with more than 300 people stopping by the car show and $8,000 raised.

Here’s a post-event re-cap courtesy of the local Patch site:

More than 300 people attended and $8,000 was raised at a benefit to help a 3-year-old Grayson girl battling a rare form of cancer.

Buffalo’s Café in Loganville hosted the Saturday, May 17 event benefitted Imogen Passman, who has ganglioneuroblastoma, from which a tumor has grown around her spine.

Buffalo’s donated a percentage of sales. The event included 75 show cars on display in the parking lot.

The money will go toward escalating medical bills. “Immy” is undergoing chemotherapy and physical therapy at the Mayo Clinic.

Thanks again to everyone who helped out!

Charity Event May 17th at the Loganville, GA Buffalo’s

I really wanted to call attention to this fantastic charity event happening tomorrow (May 17th) at our Loganville, GA Buffalo’s Cafe. So many of our franchisees get involved in charity events like this and they just don’t get the sort of press or media coverage they deserve. So if you’re in the area, please consider stopping by and supporting a worthy cause.

Here’s a bit more detail from the Gwinnett Daily Post:

Buffalo’s Cafe in Loganville is throwing a Parking Lot Party and Car Show to benefit “local angel,” Imogen Passman of Grayson, on May 17.

Four year old Imogen is battling a rare type of cancer and is currently undergoing chemo and physical therapy. The car show is open to all cars and trucks with a $20 entry fee. There will also be a silent auction, 50/50 raffles and prizes, car trivia, a DJ, inflatables, face painting and games for the whole family.

The Parking Lot Party and Car Show will be May 17 from noon to 4 p.m. at Buffalo’s Cafe in Loganville located at 910 Athens Highway.

If you’re on Facebook, you can also get more details at the official event page. Consider encouraging your friends & family to attend.

In Woodstock, GA? Support a Great Cause Today

Our Woodstock, GA Buffalo’s Cafe location on Highway 92 has a special fundraiser on the first Tuesday of each month. (That’s today!) In support of the Woodstock Police Department, the local Buffalo’s franchise donates 10 percent of its proceeds to the department’s youth Explorer Program.

The first Tuesdays event at Buffalo’s has generated $3,100 over the past few years. Kudos to the Woodstock Buffalo’s Cafe General Manager, Chris Nash for supporting such a valuable cause for his community’s young people. If you’re in the area, please stop by between 6 pm and 9 pm today, enjoy some outstanding wings and support a great local program at the same time.
