Baumhower’s Victory Grille Celebrates Veterans Day by donating 5% of Veterans Day Proceeds to National Veterans Foundation
Aloha Hospitality, Inc., parent company of Baumhower’s Victory Grille, honor our military heroes by donating 5% of their restaurant’s proceeds on Veterans Day, Saturday, November 11 to the veteran service programs of the National Veterans Foundation.
“I can’t think of a better way to honor our Veterans than to support their readjustment to civilian life,” said Bob Baumhower, self-proclaimed Head Fry Cook. “Every guest who comes into our restaurants on Veterans Day will be part of supporting the great work the National Veterans Foundation does.
In addition to their Veterans Day support, all of Bob Baumhower’s restaurants, including the fine-dining gem Dauphin’s in downtown Mobile, AL offer big discounts to veterans and active military. A 25% discount is given to all veterans and active duty military personnel dining in uniform at any location. Those dining out of uniform receive a 10% discount when they present a military ID.
Baumhower’s restaurant’s partnership with the National Veterans Foundation began in 2014 through the “Bob’s Platoon” campaign.
