The duo’s newest CD, Rebels On the Run, will be available at all Buffets locations – Ryan’s®, Country Buffet®, HomeTown® Buffet, Old Country Buffet®, Fire Mountain® and Granny’s Buffet SM – starting July 5 for a special price of $8.99, while supplies last. Buffets will donate profits from the sale of the CDs to
Armed Services YMCA® (ASYMCA) for Operation Outdoors, a camp program that assists the children of military personnel during deployment.
The ASYMCA Operation Outdoors camp program provides an opportunity for military children to take a break from everyday worries. The unique atmosphere of the camp provides an opportunity for military kids to meet and have fun with each other and build a support network of friends going through the same experiences. Children are also able to take advantage of outdoor activities that will help foster leadership and teamwork skills, as well as boost their self-esteem.
In addition to the camps for children, the ASYMCA sponsors camps that reunite families with loved ones returning from war. Service members are able to take mini-getaways to the outdoors and spend quality time with their entire family, catching up and reconnecting. ASYMCA launched the camp program in the summer of 2007 for children of junior enlisted military personnel and their families.
“Our brands are all about providing places for families to connect over a great meal. That’s why we are so proud to align with the ASYMCA to help further its mission of helping military families reconnect after a period of service to our country,” said Jason Abelkop, Chief Marketing Officer of Buffets, Inc. “Through our donation and involvement, we hope to improve the experience of the military families in our communities.”
The well-known country duo echoed Abelkop’s thoughts. “We have a history of appreciation for and support of the military, and are proud to be a part of an initiative that allows our music to help such a great cause,” said Troy Gentry
