Free Fancy Thanksgiving Dinner for Those in Need


Hello friends we are doing it again! A Fancy Thanksgiving for those who could use a little love. Here is the official press:

Thanksgiving dinner is a tradition that can really stress out an already stressed budget. We all know friends, neighbors, coworkers, or family members that are going through tough times and are struggling to make ends meet, and it’s time that they got some uplifting news. CRAVE Restaurants,and local community service organizations are partnering to provide an exciting opportunity for working families this Thanksgiving.  The owners and staff of CRAVE have generously offered to feed a complimentary Thanksgiving dinner to those who are going through tough times but would really appreciate a great meal on Thanksgiving in an outstanding restaurant.

We are choosing to work with our community partners who also hold a prosperity belief that offering people tools to lift themselves to a better place is the best way to help those who are trying to keep their heads above water. Today our tool is a random act of kindness for a family that could sure enjoy a FUN experience.

What we are looking to do is have your agency locate the people that would benefit from this experience and pass this information along to them. Please work with them to assure they will be attending, and help us give them and their entire family a fine dining experience to lift their spirits.  CALL TO MAKE A RESERVATION: 952.933.6500

All reservations must be made at least one week before the holiday.
Do you need fliers for this event to hand out? – email and we  will have some dropped off-  or contact for more information. The virtual fliers will be ready Tuesday, which we can email to you–just let us know.

YES  you can: Pass this on to those you know and organizations that serve the public.

WHO  is a fit: People on a fixed income, elderly, disability, unemployment, students of all types, people who ran out of unemployment, anyone using social service agencies, under served youth, foster care, military, low income, underemployed, ect…  This is for the WHOLE family to enjoy.

If this reservation is for YOU and you feel weird about taking a gift like this: Don’t be afraid to come and enjoy a great event.

Rich Chicks will will be there all day and we are including agency staff to come with their people. It is such a wonderful event and one of very few that both staff and clients can just relax and have a great day. Dress up and have a great day.

If you have a shut-in list let us know  in advance so we can work some of our magic.  We have a little room for delivery but it works best to have you deliver to your own shut-in list. We still have to add reservations for shut-ins but I have to that. Not the phone reservation line. FYI If there is a snowstorm that day- volunteers will not deliver.

BONUS: we are adding FREE holiday photos so you can have a picture taken that you can download to use in your holiday cards.
