Wendy's Gives $17K to Hockey Program
According to the news source, the company will award the check at tonight’s Minnesota Wild game. A portion of the money was raised from the sales of a promotional Wild-branded cheeseburger that was sold at Minnesota store locations for a limited time of three months.
Minnesota Youth Hockey offers scholarships and programs for young players as well as the disabled. The group’s leaders said that the money would go to developing new programs.
Mike Givens, president of the largest franchisee in Minnesota, was reported saying that the donation was an example of the community outreach Founder Dave Thomas had always stressed to his owners.
The journal also reported that Wendy’s, a sponsor of Minnesota Youth Hockey, will give youth teams the chance to win 30 tickets to a Minnesota Wild game as well as the chance to play on the ice during one of the game's breaks.
