Our sincerest thank you to everyone who helped make the eighth annual “Eat-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish” campaign, our most successful campaign yet! Thanks to your generosity, Maggiano’s was able to raise $750,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which allowed them to grant 100 wishes.
Each year our partnership with Make-A-Wish Foundation grows and support from this year’s campaign moved Maggiano’s into the top 10 corporate supporters of the Foundation. Maggiano’s has raised more than $2.3 million to date for Make-A-Wish.
During the campaign, Maggiano’s made a donation to the Foundation each time a guest ordered from the “Eat-A-Dish”menu, which featured eight chef’s special dishes – two pastas, four entrees and two desserts – as well as Leslie’s Lemonade, a refreshing peach and pomegranate lemonade named after eight-year-old, DFW Make-A-Wish recipient, Leslie.
Back in May, our restaurant support center in Dallas sponsored Leslie’s wish to visit the sunny beaches of Hawaii. While in Hawaii, Leslie had a chance to swim with dolphins too.
