Ovation Brand Resturants Celebrate Real Life Heroes



Ovation Brands’ restaurants, including Old Country Buffet Ryan’s, HomeTown Buffet and Country Buffet are shining the spotlight on true life heroes with its newest Family Night promotion starting Thursday, August 25, 2016. In partnership with Anchor Bay Entertainment and their award-winning animated film, Underdogs, the restaurants will highlight various heroes from soldiers to teachers and more with this seven-week program. Family Night takes place every Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m.

“Heroes aren’t reserved for just the movies, and many are among us in our everyday lives” said Mike Griffith, Director of Marketing for Ovation Brands. “Our newest promotion with Anchor Bay Entertainment helps shine a light on these individuals and teach kids the importance of helping others.”unnamedInspired by Underdogs, an animated comedy that brings toy foosball players to life to help a young man save his village, Family Night will feature the following themes:

  • August 25: Meet a Firefighter Hero Day
  • September 1: Scouts Honor
  • September 8: Teacher Heroes and Grandparent Heroes
  • September 15: Soldier Hero
  • September 22: Thank You, Police Officers!
  • September 29. Literary Heroes
  • October 6: Little Heroes

Local heroes will be invited to participate in the weekly activities to share their experiences and inspire guests. The program will wrap up on October 6 with a screening of Underdogs at select locations. Restaurants will also be hosting canned food drives to benefit local charities the last week of the promotion. Participating restaurants will accept donations during that week, and each child who brings in a can will receive an “I Can Make a Difference” sticker. Check your local restaurant for details.
