NINETY NINE RESTAURANTS IN NORTH ATTLEBORO AND FOXBORO GATHER DONATIONS FOR BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF PAWTUCKET DURING OCTOBER

PAWTUCKET, RI, OCTOBER 2, 2013 - October is Boys & Girls Club Fundraising Month at the Ninety Nine Restaurants in North Attleboro and Foxboro. Both restaurants will again assist the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket through a local effort that is part of the Ninety Nine Restaurants' company-wide commitment to the communities in which it does business.

Ninety Nine Restaurants broadened its community involvement by developing a relationship with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the oldest and largest organization that has a primary mission of service to youth. For over a decade, the Ninety Nine Restaurants has shown its commitment to the Boys & Girls Clubs through various, local initiatives. For example, every time a new restaurant location is opened, the Ninety Nine Restaurants makes a donation that benefits the local Boys & Girls Club that serves that restaurant's community.

The Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket has 4,000 members, a third of which are nearby Massachusetts residents who attend the Club's Camp Ramsbottom in Rehoboth, Mass.

Founded in 1900, the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket has established a long-standing tradition of caring and supportive involvement with the area's youths and their families. The Club's primary mission is helping children to succeed in life by building skills that will help them become productive, responsible and caring citizens. The range of Club programs, activities and services extend to educational support, tutoring, mentoring, career counseling, computer training, fine arts, athletics, before-school and after-school environments, and nutritious meals.

Throughout October, patrons at both local Ninety Nine locations can participate in the fundraising effort three ways. When customers order a Boys & Girls Club sandwich or entr้e one dollar will be donated to the Pawtucket Club. Also, diners can purchase a commemorative bracelet for five dollars or simply add a donation of one, three, five dollars or more to the guest check.

There will be special October promotions at both restaurants to benefit the Pawtucket Club. In Foxboro, there will be a bartender challenge with staff from the Club on October 10 and a kids' bake sale on October 25. In Attleboro on October 11, local kids will hold a bake sale. October 29 will usher in "Dining for a Cause" during which the restaurant will donate a percentage of each dining ticket. Finally, a bartender challenge with Club staff is set for October 30. Further details are available at each location.
