Runza's Annual Great Books for Great Kids Fundraiser!
On Tuesday, August 25th, Runza® Restaurants will conduct the 13th annual Great Books for Great Kids fundraiser. Runza® will donate 15% of the day's sales from both Bellevue locations to benefit the Children's Department of the Bellevue Public Library. Last year the Bellevue Public Library Foundation received over $600 which was used to purchase 8 book series (43 titles).
In the last 12 years, over $362,000 has been donated to organizations in the communities served by Runza®.
Runza® Restaurants has been a long time supporter of reading. "Reading is vital to lifelong success and provides an excellent opportunity for families to spend time together," stated Becky Perrett, Director of Marketing for Runza® National. "Donating funds for books and promoting literacy is an important endeavor for children and the community."
I encourage the community to visit either Bellevue Runza® location (816 Galvin Rd. S. and 3002 Samson Way) on Tuesday, August 25, 2015. You'll get a great meal AND support the Bellevue Public Library!
