    This promotion marks City Barbeque’s fifth annual fundraiser for Resurrecting Lives.

    Starting January 14, when guests purchase a new limited-edition $5 tumbler at any City Barbeque location, City Barbeque will donate all tumbler profits to the Resurrecting Lives Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to supporting veterans living with traumatic brain injury. As a thank you for helping support this vital organization, guests will receive free refills in their 2019 tumbler through March 31 (offer valid for free refills of fountain beverages, tea, and lemonade with any food purchase at City Barbeque). Tumblers are available while supplies last, and City Barbeque has sold out every year.

    This promotion marks City Barbeque’s fifth annual fundraiser for Resurrecting Lives; the restaurant has raised more than $46,000 to support the organization to date. Resurrecting Lives is committed to helping veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI), which impacts an estimated 20–25% of the troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The foundation helps veterans successfully transition to a post-military career and life through advocacy, aid, fundraising, and research: a cause that resonates with the culture of service at City Barbeque.

    “We’re honored to be able to support our veterans via the Resurrecting Lives Foundation and are thankful our guests also want to support this cause,” says City Barbeque founder and CEO Rick Malir. “We hear from guests all the time how much they appreciate this partnership. We’re glad we can come together to do something good to support our veterans living with TBI.”
