Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar Launches Kid’s Cards Program

Dallas-Based Casual Dining Brand Announces New Kids Program to Raise
Funds for the Special Olympics

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Just in time for the 2016 Olympic Games, Dallas-based Boston’s
Restaurant & Sports Bar’s
(Boston’s) non-profit organization,
the Boston’s Pizza Foundation, today announces the launch of its new
Kid’s Cards program to raise funds for the Special Olympics. The new
program will run until the end of August.

From now until August 31st, Kid’s Cards can be purchased for
a donation of $5 and are redeemable for five free kids’ meals at any
Boston’s location until the end of the year. All proceeds from the sales
of Kid’s Cards will benefit the Special Olympics, the world’s largest
organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
This marks the first partnership between the Boston’s Pizza Foundation
and the Special Olympics.

“The Special Olympics is unique in the way that it tracks funds closely
to ensure they end up back in the communities where they were donated
from, so it’s great to know that our efforts will directly circle back
to the communities participating in the fundraiser,” said Troy Cooper,
Chief Operating Officer of Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar. “We’re
honored to partner with a world-wide organization focused around
community and inclusion, regardless of ability or disability.”

The new Kid’s Cards program is part of a larger initiative at Boston’s
aimed at enhancing its environment for children. Going on year round,
the Boston’s Kids Program features kid-friendly menu items, mobile
applications, a 3D-augmented reality game and other collectable items.

“Our restaurants are focused on offering a family-friendly dining
experience, and in order to do so we have launched many
children-inspired programs,” said Brad Bevill, Vice President of
Marketing for Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar. “Our new Kid’s Card
program is sure to create positive experience for the family and keep
them coming back time and time again.”
