O’Charley’s Restaurants, founded in Nashville in 1971, is giving back to Second Harvest in more than one way this summer, by offering a unique donation initiative in its stores and also by continuing its support of the Stars for Second Harvest benefit concert.
Guests dining at 23 participating O’Charley’s restaurants in the Middle Tennessee area from May 1 – May 28 will have the opportunity to donate to Second Harvest in $5 increments. In exchange, they will receive a $5 O’Charley’s voucher that can be used during a future visit. The participating locations will also provide donation bins where guests can donate food to receive an O’Charley’s voucher. All proceeds raised during this fundraising initiative will go directly toward better serving the hungry in Middle Tennessee through Second Harvest’s programs.
“Second Harvest does such admirable work within our community. We’re thrilled to have our team members and guests make an even greater impact this year through this fundraising effort,” said Eddie Hall, O’Charley’s President. “And once again, we are grateful to be involved with the Stars for Second Harvest benefit which does an excellent job at bringing people together for a fantastic cause—the talent is outstanding and it’s just an overall great event.”
For the 13th year in a row, O’Charley’s has teamed up with Second Harvest to present the annual Stars for Second Harvest benefit, hosted by Craig Wiseman, acclaimed hit songwriter and founder of Big Loud Records and Big Loud Shirt. This popular concert at the historic Ryman Auditorium features an unplugged, acoustic-style performance by some of country music’s brightest stars. The concert takes place Tuesday, June 6 at 7:30pm.
“I’m so thankful to have O’Charley’s be a part of Stars for Second Harvest again this year and for all of their efforts to help raise money for such a worthwhile cause,” said Craig Wiseman. “I’m so excited about this year’s event and look forward to seeing the end results.”
