Bob Evans will celebrate the grand opening of its Chardon, Ohio, location at 6 a.m. on January 26. Prior to opening, residents are invited to attend two different “sneak peek” restaurant previews, which will support Chardon resident, Nick Walczak, a survivor of the Chardon High School shooting. Participating guests will pay 50% of the normal cost of a meal at Chardon Bob Evans and 100% of this amount will then be donated to W.A.G.S. 4 Kids to help the Walczak family towards their goal of raising $8,000 to purchase a service dog so that Nick can achieve greater independence and mobility. Walczak was shot twice in the neck, once in the back and once in the arm. One of these bullets pierced his spinal cord, leaving him paralyzed.
Bob Evans is committed to partnering with neighborhood charities to help those in need. A tradition started by founder Bob Evans, community fundraising events are important to each restaurant by giving back to their community by serving families delicious, home-style food and donating proceeds to local charities and events. Last year, more than $500,000 was donated to local charities through the company’s Community Fundraiser program.
