R.j. Gator's Supports Mississippi Franchisee Through Hurricane Relief Fundraisers And 'Dine For America'

Tuesday, October 04, 2005

R.J. Gator's, which planned to open a location in Waveland, Mississippi this fall, is supporting the Hurricane Katrina Relief efforts by raising funds in each of its 22 locations throughout the southeast. At any time, guests may add a donation to their checks, which will be donated directly to one of the local non-profit organizations in Waveland. "Waveland, which borders Louisiana, was one of the hardest hit towns in Mississippi," said R.J. Gator's franchisee, William R. Lady. "I lost two businesses, two homes, three cars and all of their contents." Lady had planned to open his first R.J. Gator's restaurant this fall, followed by two more in the next three years - one in each of Mississippi's coastal counties. "I still plan to follow through with my goal of opening three locations," said Lady. "Every day seems to get better, and I look forward to future growth in this area." On October 5, which has been proclaimed "Dine for America" day, restaurants across the nation will join together to support the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, helping those affected by Hurricane Katrina. That evening, R.J. Gator's has committed to donating 15% of all sales directly to the fund. R.J. Gator's restaurants will also host prize raffles that evening, donating all proceeds to the relief fund. "Like so many others, we have been touched by the recent tragedies in Louisiana and Mississippi," said Tim Timoteo, founder and CEO of Jupiter-based R.J. Gator's. "Our hearts and prayers go out to those affected, and we want to do our part to help. We invite the community to come out and join us."
