Maggiano’s Little Italy will host its fifth annual Father’s Day 5K at The Streets at Southpoint in Durham on Sunday, June 18. All proceeds generated from the run/walk event will benefit Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina. The event begins with a 1-mile fun run at 8:30 a.m. followed by the 5K run/walk at 9 a.m. A 100-yard dash for kids will take place at the conclusion of the 5K.
From June 1 to August 2, 2017, all Maggiano’s restaurants across the country will encourage their customers to “Eat-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish” to help raise money for Make-A-Wish. Since the program’s inception in 2004, Maggiano’s has almost $6 million to Make-A-Wish. During the 2015 campaign, Maggiano’s raised more than $1 million and hosted more than 92 wish enhancement parties and 71 fundraisers in-restaurant!
