We kicked off this year’s campaign in style yesterday with a show-stopping procession of 75 candy red 2011 Ford Fiestas that turned heads all over town. Pittsburgh police escorted the parade from Cranberry Township to its destination: our newest Eat’n Park in Fox Chapel. Believe us, it was quite a sight!
Smiley, Fiesta style!

So, what’s this have to do with raising money for kids? Well, thanks to the generosity of The Neighborhood Ford Store, we will be raffling off one of these vehicles to a lucky winner at the end of the Caring for Kids campaign. Raffle tickets can be purchased for just $2 each in any of our Eat’n Park restaurants, now through December 12. Eat’n Park guests like you will have a chance to check out the Ford Fiesta up close and personal, because we’ll have one parked at every location for the duration of the campaign.
Besides purchasing a raffle ticket (or 10 – why not buy a few for family and friends?), there are plenty of other ways to contribute to the campaign. Stop in to any Eat’n Park to pick up our all-new Smiley Christmas ornament for just $3 – we guarantee it will brighten up anyone’s tree! Our ever-popular Smiley magnets will also be available in a variety of colors for just $2 each. These items make excellent stocking stuffers, and you can feel good about helping a great cause at the same time.

Finally, we’ll have special events, like Tips for Tots, taking place at our restaurants throughout the campaign. We’ll be posting a weekly schedule here on our blog, so check back often.
Here’s to helping the kids!
