Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
Romacorp, Inc., parent company for Tony Roma’s restaurants, is excited to announce the selection of Americans for the Arts as the beneficiary for its first cause effort. Americans for the Arts is the nation’s leading non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the arts and arts education across the country and a perfect partner for the Tony Roma’s brand. For more than 50 years, Americans for the Arts has led a national effort to ensure that every child is not only granted the opportunity to participate in all forms of art, but also afforded the opportunity to appreciate them as well. Between October 14th and December 31st , 2013, Tony Roma’s will honor that commitment and celebrate the value of arts and music in our communities by donating $1 for every purchase made of the fall season featured item, Filet medallions with Samuel Adams Mushroom Sauce, to Americans for the Arts. Participating Tony Roma’s restaurants will choose a local school in their community that will benefit from the partnership; a portion of funds raised will be directed to those schools’ arts and music programs. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the arts.
“I am so excited to have the opportunity to partner with an organization that fits so closely with our brand. Tony was an entertainer and had a unique appreciation for music and the arts. Today, our company continues to believe that learning about the arts and music enables every child to develop the critical thinking, collaborative, and creative skills necessary to succeed in today’s ever-changing world,” commented, Monique Yeager, Director of Marketing for Romacorp, Inc.
“Creativity and innovation are the driving forces in our 21st century economy,” adds Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts. “An overwhelming majority—72 percent in fact—of business leaders say creativity is the number one ability they seek in a job candidate. Studying the arts equips students with these essential skills and better prepares them to succeed in the 21st century workforce. We are proud to be partnering with Tony Roma’s on its first cause effort and salute them for investing in the creative spirit of the next generation.”
