To celebrate National Pretzel Day on April 26, Ben’s Soft Pretzels will give away free pretzels (one per person) with a minimum $1 donation to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF). All of the donations from National Pretzel Day will go toward building new Intrepid Spirit centers for military personnel who suffer from traumatic brain injury or psychological health conditions. All of the administrative costs of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund are underwritten by the Fund’s Board of Directors. In total, Ben’s Soft Pretzels has raised more than $130,000 for the IFHF in the last few years.
The soft pretzel franchise will also be giving away a year’s worth of free pretzels to one lucky fan via a photo contest. Pretzel fans can enter to win by posting a photo of their pretzel with the hashtags #nationalpretzelday #benspretzels on Instagram or Twitter. A winner will be chosen at random from the entries on May 1.
With the minimum $1 donation, visitors will receive a Jumbo Soft Pretzel to celebrate National Pretzel Day and support those who have served their country. With continued support of our U.S. service members, Ben’s Soft Pretzels has also gives away free pretzels on Veteran’s Day to current and retired military members to show its support for the men and women who fearlessly defend our country.
“This is our 5th year partnering with the honorable Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund,” says Scott Jones, CEO and co-founder of Ben’s Soft Pretzels. “We love to celebrate National Pretzel Day but we appreciate it even more by giving back to this country’s heroes in our own small way.”
