Sevierville, TN (July 31, 2019) – The Sevierville/Pigeon Forge location of Dave & Buster’s and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of East Tennessee are thrilled to join forces and celebrate the launch of a summer-long campaign to raise funds to grant wishes for critically ill children.
Now until September 1, guests will be given the opportunity to purchase a wish star for a donation of $1 or more with all funds benefitting Make-A-Wish. In return for the donation, customers receive a coupon for $10 of free game play (with purchase of a $10 game play) to be redeemed at a later date. Dave & Buster’s will also donate $1 for every order of the Garlic Parmesan Cheese Curds appetizer purchased and a $0.50 per person donation for each Sweets & Berries platter purchased from the group sales menu. In addition, customers have the option to “round up” transactions in the restaurant with proceeds going to Make-A-Wish.
“Dave & Buster’s is a fantastic partner for Make-A-Wish across the country,” says Garrett Wagley, Make-A-Wish East Tennessee CEO. “We were thrilled when the location opened here in Sevierville/Pigeon Forge. Not only do they participate in fundraising activities like this summer campaign, they welcome wish kids and families and provide a fun, family-friendly experience.”
Dave & Buster’s is an American restaurant and entertainment business. Since their initial partnership with Make-A-Wish in 2012, Dave & Buster’s has launched several fundraising initiatives and offered their restaurants and video arcade services to chapters and wish families for wish parties and events. The company has raised more than $8.8 Million for Make-A-Wish since 2012.
“Our staff is eager to participate in the summer campaign,” says Bobby Peterson, Corporate Sales Manager. “Dave & Buster’s is a fun and energetic place all year long but adding the Make-A-Wish campaign will create an additional level of excitement. Our customers and staff will have the change to give back while having a great time.”
