Neora Honors 12 Brand Partners with Ripple Awards

BBBS Night at Pizza Ranch

Serving Up Pizza for Big Brothers Big Sisters

They have a Community Outreach program for nonprofit organizations, so we organized a night for BBBS. Twenty percent of the total food tab of patrons who come to eat and support the nonprofit – as well as all tips – are donated. On these nights there is only kitchen and cashier staff there. The nonprofit is responsible for bringing a group of people whose role is to bus tables, greet the customers, and promote the organization.

We love being part of this movement to Make People Better! Phyllis Anderson Lincoln, Nebraska
