Maggiano's will donate $1 for every Chef-Features menu item and 50 cents for every select beverage ordered.
"Each year, our guests and teammates look forward to our annual Eat-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish campaign, and we are grateful to bring it back this year to help give children once-in-a-lifetime experiences, especially after such a difficult year for everyone," says Steve Provost, president of Maggiano's. "We're not only proud to serve our Chef-Features menu, but are also proud of where the proceeds go. Now that we're returning to some sense of normalcy, this is an ideal time to make a difference, and we're so thankful for everyone's support."
This marks the 17th year Maggiano's has supported the life-changing work of Make-A-Wish. Since 2003, the Eat-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish campaign has raised more than $9 million and has made more than 1,200 dreams come true.
"Maggiano's has been an excellent partner over the years with their ongoing contributions that allow us to continue granting wishes on a daily basis," says Richard K. Davis, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. "With the proceeds donated, we've been able to fund life-changing experiences for wish kids that deliver hope when they need it most."
