Metro Diner, known for serious diner food, has teamed up with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation to launch a round-up fundraising campaign at its 62 diners nationwide. Metro Diner, NPCF’s first national restaurant partner, is helping the charity create additional awareness during September, which is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
“We are proud to partner with National Pediatric Cancer Foundation on their mission to eliminate childhood cancer,” says Crafton Bryant, Director of Marketing of Metro Diner. “As a place where the locals eat, we truly care about the families and children we serve and invite our guests to join us in raising awareness and funding for this remarkable organization.”
Known for serving serious diner food from an extensive menu of traditional diner dishes, Metro Diner is dedicated to the communities they serve. Beginning August 27, when Metro Diner guests pay for their meals they will be given an opportunity to round-up their check to the nearest dollar, add increments of $1, $2 and $5, or provide a custom amount. The campaign runs through the end of September.
“The team at Metro Diner not only serves amazing comfort food, but they are also providing comfort to children fighting cancer,” says David Frazer, CEO of the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. “We are proud to partner with Metro Diner to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research, and we appreciate and thank the Metro Diner customers for donating at their local diner.”
Both Metro Diner and NPCF are headquartered in Tampa.
