ATLANTA, July 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Levy Restaurants, the dining and hospitality provider at the Georgia Dome, is seeking nonprofit organizations to participate in their concessions fundraising program for the 2016-2017 season.
"Groups ranging from sports clubs and church groups to school boosters and other nonprofit groups are invited to operate concession stands during games to raise money to support their organizations," said Jeff Kern, Director of Operations for Levy Restaurants at Georgia Dome. "We want to partner with groups that want to work with us to create the best experience for guests by serving up great food and exceptional service."
Atlanta-based Serenity House, which provides housing and support for homeless and at-risk people, has participated in the program for seven years. The money raised from their concession stand has allowed them to build 14 new houses, a basketball court, track and community garden on 13 acres of land.
"I like being able to work hard and give back to my community. I'm not just serving people good food—I feel like I'm earning my place at Serenity House by working hard and doing a good job," said Joel McMillan, Serenity House volunteer. "And now that I don't live at Serenity House, knowing that working at the games gives someone else the chance to get back on their feet is important to me and why I keep coming back!"
Traveling softball team Georgia Trouble has used the funds raised to supplement the travel costs for high profile tournaments, giving athletes the opportunity to play in front of influential scouts and coaches. As a result, all team members with dreams of playing college softball have been able to make that a reality.
"During our volunteer shifts, we're able to come together as one big family to work at Falcons games and we look forward to having that dedicated time to come together, even if it's just for a few hours once a year," said Connie Berry of Georgia Trouble.
Levy Restaurants is looking for more inspiring non-profit community organizations to support the Falcons this season – join the team! Levy provides training to ensure volunteers are ready to greet fans on game day. Any interested groups can contact Felicia Addison at 404-223-8582 or at [email protected] for more information.
