Landry’s today announced that Saltgrass Steak House is once again partnering with the American Cancer Society for a fundraiser to provide free lodging to patients undergoing cancer treatment and their families. Spanning the entire month of February, and in honor of World Cancer Day on February 4, the nationwide campaign will take place at every Saltgrass location across the country, totaling 90 restaurants in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas.
“Saltgrass Steak House hopes to support families affected by cancer by joining forces with the American Cancer Society,” said Terry Turney, COO Saltgrass Steak House. “We look forward to beginning this campaign and supporting the fight against cancer.”
From February 1 through February 28, Saltgrass customers will have the opportunity to donate $3, $5 or $10 to the 1,000 Nights of Hope campaign. All the funds collected support The American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge Network which offers cancer patients and their caregivers a place to stay at no cost, allowing them to focus on what truly matters – getting better. Oftentimes a patient’s necessary cancer treatment requires an extended stay in another city and Saltgrass aims to remove the stress of finding housing and the means to pay for it.
“Almost everyone knows someone who has or has had cancer. The last thing we want for them is to worry about the emotional and financial strain of where to stay when having to travel long distances for cancer treatment. We’re thrilled to partner with Landry’s and its customers to help ease this burden.” said Dan D’Armond, Senior Executive Director at the American Cancer Society
