July 4th Saul Good Event

*NEWS RELEASE*   Military Missions, Inc. would like to invite you attend the upcoming July 4th benefit at Saul Good Restaurant & Pub.

Saul Good Restaurant & Pub has joined forces with Military Missions for a July 4th Fundraiser to give every deployed soldier from Kentucky a care package.  On July 4th, Saul Good will offer 1/2 price on ALL food as an incentive to generate donations for Military Missions, Inc.

Military Missions, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing care packages and support for every Kentucky soldier deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. These care packages contain essential items (eye drops, foot powder, socks) and sundries (CD’s, snack food, books). The cost of each package, excluding donated items, exceeds $20. In addition, it will cost approximately $11 to mail each package.

Last December, during OPERATION S.E.N.D. CHRISTMAS, Military Missions sent 2,887 packages to deployed soldiers. In addition, Military Missions sent 2,500 unit bags and boxes the rest of the year. “We believe it’s important to let our soldiers know we have not forgotten them,” said Beth Pennington, founder of Military Missions. “The process of funding annual Christmas care packages must begin now. In unsure economic times, we must start early and dig deeper into our hearts and pockets to show our appreciation for our local military community.”

“We are thrilled to be a part of Military Missions quest to encourage and thank our hometown heroes,” said Rob Perez, owner of Saul Good Restaurant & Pub.

Saul Good Restaurant & Pub is an American pub, which serves a wide variety of chef driven food, including hand tossed pizzas, gourmet burgers, farm fresh salads, and features a chocolate bar. The restaurant will offer 1/2 price on all food items on July 4, 2012 from noon to 8:00 pm. Donations for Military Missions will be accepted.

Saul Good July 4th Fundraiser

The annual Saul Good fundraiser for Military Missions has been a very successful event for the past three years. It provides a great venue for getting the word out about Military Missions Inc and we have successfully raised quite a bit of money to pay for rising postage costs. We need volunteers to help out at both restaurant locations on Wednesday, July 4th from Noon to 8:00 pm. Volunteers will be greeting customers and giving out information about Military Missions.

On July 4th, Saul Good Restaurant & Pub will offer ½ price on all food as an incentive to generate donations for Military Missions, Inc.

Military Missions, Inc., a Lexington based nonprofit organization, is dedicated to providing care packages for every Kentucky soldier deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. These care packages contain essential items (eye drops, foot powder, socks) and sundries (CD’s, snack food, video games). Shipping costs alone run between $11 and $13 per soldier, per box mailed.

“We believe it’s important to let our soldiers know we have not forgotten them,” said Beth Pennington, founder of Military Missions. “The process of funding our care package division is a year round effort. While our list of requests for care packages has quadrupled in the past two months, we have seen a significant decline in donations. In these unsure economic times, we must dig deeper into our hearts and pockets to show our appreciation for our military.”

“We are thrilled to be a part of Military Missions quest to encourage and thank our hometown heroes,” said Rob Perez, owner of Saul Good Restaurant & Pub.
