A million thanks from the Keg

Campaign a way to give back and show support

The Keg Steakhouse and Bar is celebrating its 40th birthday in style.

To mark the anniversary, the restaurant chain is donating $1 million to local communities.

The Keg’s Thanks a Million campaign will donate forty $25,000 grants to fund community-based projects or initiatives in Keg communities.

“For 40 years, The Keg has been committed to the communities in which we operate and where our success has taken root,” said David Aisenstat, the president and chief executive officer of The Keg Steakhouse and Bar.

“The Thanks A Million campaign is our way of giving back to those communities and showing our support in an even more tangible way while encouraging others to become involved in their community.”

The contest is open to not only charities, but other organizations and individuals who need funding for a community project or initiative.

The projects can be charitable, community-focused or educational.

Until April 30, ideas for community enhancement projects can be submitted at www.kegsteakhouse.com.

And then beginning May 16 until June 14, members of the public have the opportunity to vote online for the entries they believe should receive the grants.

The winning entries  will be announced June 29.
