“Veteran's Hospitals got my father back to functioning normally. Thank God, and bless the doctors for helping him to heal. My heart goes out to each and every veteran,” shares Duke Moscrip, owner of Duke's Chowder House.
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) November 04, 2014
On November 11, 2014, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., all six locations of Duke’s Chowder House will be giving away small bowls of their renowned All Natural New England Clam Chowder in order to celebrate International Chowder Day, as well as to support and acknowledge the efforts and sacrifices of all veterans.
Duke's owner, Duke Moscrip, and his son and business partner, John Moscrip, are pleased to share their signature specialty with chowder enthusiasts and veterans alike, who are sure to attend this heartfelt event.
Duke’s will share a portion of all sale proceeds from November 11, 2014. As in previous years, Moscrip will donate proceeds to the Seattle Veteran’s Hospital because “it is the right thing to do”.
Duke will also be present at all six Duke's Chowder House locations to meet veterans and greet other guests to bring awareness to the Seattle Veteran’s Hospital, a part of the VA Puget Sound Health Care System.
A restaurateur for more than 40 years, Duke’s father was a veteran who served 35 years in the Navy. Duke’s dad, nicknamed "the Original Duke", was a Navy pilot in World War II who barely survived an airplane accident when he flew into a mountain in a thunderstorm during training in Phoenix, Arizona. Unfortunately, his co-pilot was not so lucky and did not survive.
“Veteran's Hospitals got my father back to functioning normally. Thank God, and bless the doctors for helping him to heal. My heart goes out to each and every veteran,” shares Duke Moscrip, owner of Duke's Chowder House. "The Veteran’s Hospital mission statement is 'to fulfill President Lincoln’s promise to care for him who shall have borne the battle', and I can confidently say that the hospital certainly fulfilled that mission for my father,” continued Moscrip.
