Nando’s PERi PERi, a popular chain of South African-Portuguese casual dining restaurants known for its spicy, flame-grilled chicken, will open its 40th nationwide location at Reston Town Center-West on Monday, Nov. 13.
For its first Saturday in business, on Nov. 18th, representatives said 100 percent of sales on that day (minus sales tax and alcohol sales) will be donated to the music programs at both South Lakes High in Reston and nearby Herndon High School.
Representatives from South Lake High School say the school’s marching band is currently raising funds to help send students to Hawaii, where they have been invited to perform for the 2017 Pearl Harbor Memorial Day Parade next month. Herndon High is reportedly raising money to send their band to Normandy, France, where they have been invited to represent the United States in the 75th Commemoration of D-Day in 2019.
Though the two schools are traditionally rivals, Nando’s said students from the two bands are happily coming together to raise money through the fundraiser on Nov. 18.
“We are proud to support musical programs at two of the most impressive public high schools in Virginia,” Bagherour added.
Nando’s PERi PERi will be located at 12120 Sunset Hills Road.
