Last month, Twin Peaks held its annual Miss Twin Peaks Contest at The Bomb Factory in Dallas where the 2017 winner was crowned.
During the national contest, televised live to all stores around the country, Twin Peaks announced a major partnership with Folds of Honor, an organization that provides educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members.
Twin Peaks Restaurants has committed to raise enough funds to sponsor 81 college scholarships—one for each of its stores nationwide—valued at $5,000 each. In addition to hosting various local fundraisers specific to each restaurant, Twin Peaks will also donate a portion of every 2018 calendar sold to Folds of Honor.
“We are really looking forward to the great things this partnership is going to do for Folds of Honor and the families we support,” says Major Dan Rooney, CEO and Founder of the Folds of Honor Foundation. “Our organization wouldn’t be considered a high-performing non-profit if it weren’t for the generous support of extraordinary companies like Twin Peaks.”
Major Ed Pulido, Senior Vice President of the Folds of Honor Foundation, made an appearance at the contest and said a few words to the audience, introducing the partnership and explaining the importance of Twin Peaks’ support in their efforts.
During the national contest, each of the 81 Twin Peaks Girls showed her support for the new partnership by wearing one of two costumes—an Armed Forces salute featuring camo outdoor flare or a patriotic red, white and blue outfit.
“At Twin Peaks, our support for, and appreciation of, America’s men and women in uniform is woven into our DNA,” says Joe Hummel, CEO of Twin Peaks. “Our new partnership with Folds of Honor is the latest demonstration of that support, and we are committed to doing everything we can to fund scholarships for the families of service-members who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.”
