Glory Days Grill Partners with the Unified Prevention Coalition in “Do More 24” June 4 (Promoted)

glorydaysGlory Days Grill is partnering with the Unified Prevention Coalition of Fairfax County (UPC) in the ‘Do More 24™’ fundraising campaign.

‘Do More 24™’ is a local movement that brings together nonprofit organizations, companies, and people committed to making a difference.  At the six Fairfax County Glory Days Grill locations, including locations at Reston North Point and Fox Mill, 10 percent of food and beverage sales on June 4 after 5 p.m. will be donated to UPC to support their mission to prevent substance abuse by youth and young adults in the County.

“Too many young people in our community are suffering from heroin and painkiller addiction and overdose, marijuana use and alcohol abuse,” said Lisa Adler, president of the nonprofit UPC. “Substance abuse is a public health issue needing a community response, and the Unified Prevention Coalition needs financial support to continue our vital work to prevent substance abuse by teens and young adults.”

“Glory Days Grill has been committed to the communities in which we operate since we opened our first restaurant on 1996. We are proud to support the tireless work of the Unified Prevention Coalition in their mission to prevent substance abuse amongst young people in Fairfax County,” says Gary Cohen, Vice President of Operations at Glory Days Grill. “We invite our friends and neighbors will join with us on June 4 to help raise funds to support this important work.”

Community members are invited to dine at Glory Days Grill on June 4 after 5 p.m. to help raise funds for this important work. Individuals are also encouraged to make a tax-deductible donation online at www.unifiedpreventioncoalition.org during the campaign, which will run from June 1 to 5.
