Nationwide Sports Pub Makes Generous Donation to Folds of Honor
TEMPE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tilted
Kilt Pub & Eatery’s “Toast to
Heroes” fundraiser raised $59,902 for Folds of Honor through the sale of
paper dog tags at all Tilted Kilt locations nationwide. Folds
of Honor provides educational scholarships to family members and
dependents of fallen or injured service members.
“Every year our franchisees and customers are ecstatic to have the
opportunity to be involved with such a meaningful foundation like Folds
of Honor,” said Lynch. “Our service men, women and their families have
sacrificed an incredible amount, so to have the opportunity to give back
through this campaign is just a small token of our appreciation for
The fifth annual “Toast to Heroes” fundraiser has allowed Tilted Kilt to
salute the sacrifices of the more than one million men and women
choosing to serve in the United States Armed Forces. Guests were given
an opportunity to purchase a $1.00, $5.00 or $10.00 paper dog tag to be
personally customized and displayed on the pub walls.
“We are incredibly appreciative to be able to participate in such a
remarkable campaign to give back to the men and women who service our
country,” said Pulido. “Folds of Honor is truly making a difference
across the nation by providing scholarships to children and spouses of
injured or fallen soldiers—seeing the community come together to bring
awareness to this campaign every year continues to amaze me.”
Of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments to
Iraq and Afghanistan, nearly nine out of 10 do not qualify for federal
scholarship assistance. Folds of Honor seeks to meet this need by
providing education scholarships to the military families of those who
have been killed or disabled while in active duty. As stories of fallen
and injured soldiers continue to make headlines, this opportunity allows
for pubs and guests to give back to the men and women who continue to
serve our country while dining at Tilted Kilt. Since its founding in
2007, Folds of Honor has awarded more than 10,000 scholarships,
including more than 2,500 in 2015 alone.
