Ovation Brands’® restaurants – Old Country Buffet®, Ryan’s®, HomeTown® Buffet and Country Buffet® – as well as Furr’s Fresh Buffet® are shining the spotlight on true life heroes with its newest Family Night promotion that started Thursday, August 25, 2016. In partnership with Anchor Bay Entertainment and their award-winning animated film, Underdogs, the restaurants will highlight various heroes from soldiers to teachers and more with this seven-week program. Family Night takes place every Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m.
“Heroes aren’t reserved for just the movies, and many are among us in our everyday lives” said Mike Griffith, Director of Marketing for Ovation Brands® and Furr’s Fresh Buffet®. “Our newest promotion with Anchor Bay Entertainment helps shine a light on these individuals and teach kids the importance of helping others.”
Inspired by Underdogs, an animated comedy that brings toy foosball players to life to help a young man save his village, Family Night will feature the following themes:
August 25: Meet a Firefighter Hero Day
September 1: Scouts Honor
September 8: Teacher Heroes and Grandparent Heroes
September 15: Soldier Hero
September 22: Thank You, Police Officers!
September 29. Literary Heroes
October 6: Little Heroes
Local heroes will be invited to participate in the weekly activities to share their experiences and inspire guests. The program will wrap up on October 6 with a screening of Underdogs at select locations. Restaurants will also be hosting canned food drives to benefit local charities the last week of the promotion. Participating restaurants will accept donations during that week, and each child who brings in a can will receive an “I Can Make a Difference” sticker. Check your local restaurant for details.
“We want to demonstrate to young children that despite their ages, they too can take action and make a difference in their communities or for others,” said Griffith. “It’s never too early to be a hero.”
In addition to the interactive Family Night activities, all restaurants will be giving away a free DVD of Underdogs on October 6, 2016 through a random drawing. No purchase necessary. Underdogs is available for purchase where DVDs are sold.
