Tempe’s Tilted Kilt has raised more than $65,000 for the Folds of Honor Foundation.
The restaurant chain known for its servers in risqué outfits, raised $65,706 for Folds of Honor, which provides educational scholarships for dependents and families of fallen or disabled service members.
Tilted Kilt raised the funds during a six-week period as part of its third annual “Here’s to Heroes” promotion at all of its restaurants across the country. Customers had the option of donating an additional $1 or $5 to have their name written on customized paper dog tags displayed on restaurant walls.
Tilted Kilt’s promotional partner Anheuser-Busch also kicked in $10,000 to donate to the foundation. Kilt President Ron Lynchand Anheuser-Busch representative Pierre Meric will present a check totaling $75,706 to Folds of Honor Senior Vice President Maj. Ed Pulido on Aug. 14 at the Tilted Kilt in Tempe.
The Tempe Tilted Kilt, at 660 W. Warner Road, beat out all of the other pubs nationwide to host the check presentation because it raised the most money: $8,034.
“There is nothing greater than giving back to the men and women who have given so much to their country so that we can enjoy all the freedom we experience on a daily basis,” Lynch said in a statement.
