Support BGCL at the 99 Restaurants in Andover and North Andover

October 13, 2016

Enjoy a great meal while supporting BGCL at the 99 Restaurant & Pub locations at 464 Lowell St. in Andover and 267 Chickering Rd. in North Andover through Monday, October 31.

There are three ways to help at both locations:

• Order the special Boys & Girls Club starter, burger, or entrée and $1 will be donated to BGCL.

• Purchase a commemorative bracelet for $5.

• Add suggested donations of $1, $3, $5, or more to the guest check.

In addition, every patron who makes a $5 donation will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a $100 gift card valid at all 99 Restaurant & Pub locations.

This October marks the 99 Restaurant & Pub's seventh annual Boys & Girls Club Fundraising Month, with the Andover and North Andover locations raising more than $48,000 since its inception for BGCL's critical programs focusing on academic success, healthy lifestyles, and community involvement. All month long, BGCL youth members will be showing their appreciation while selling raffle tickets and bracelets at the Andover and North Andover restaurants every Friday and Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m.

In fact, BGCL Executive Director Markus Fischer says the 99 Restaurants in Andover and North Andover have a long history of supporting the club. For several years, the restaurants have also donated and prepared summer cookouts, as well as the annual Christmas dinner for hundreds of youth members.

"The 99 Restaurants are among our most consistent and valued corporate partners," says Markus, noting that a youth member in culinary arts school was even employed as a result of his participation in a previous Boys & Girls Fundraising Month. "We appreciate their unwavering commitment, year after year, to our mission of changing kids' lives."

Join us in thanking the 99 Restaurants for their unwavering commitment, year after year, to our mission of changing kids' lives. Bon appétit!
