Diners at any of Luna Grill's 10 Orange County locations can help support local Special Olympics athletes throughout the month of August. Guests will be asked during the order process if they wish to make an additional cash donation to support Special Olympics. 100 percent of all donations collected will stay in the region and go directly to Special Olympics, helping support athlete programs, training, events and educational outreach regarding individuals with disabilities.
Various Luna Grill locations will have individual posters and other in-restaurant signage highlighting some of the amazing athletes that participate in Special Olympics activities nationwide. “We are very thankful to partner with Luna Grill to support our more than 31,700 Special Olympics Southern California athletes,” said Bill Shumard, President & CEO of Special Olympics Southern California. “This fundraising campaign will help us serve many more champions through sports, health, and leadership programs.”
Luna Grill offers wholesome Mediterranean cuisine such as signature kabob plates, gourmet salads, appetizers, wraps, desserts, craft beer and wine in a contemporary setting. All foods, marinades and sauces are crafted with care daily and meals are made fresh to order and served to the table with genuine cutlery and tableware. A cross between a fast casual and full service sit-down restaurant, Luna Grill combines the best of both worlds and has created the concept of "Luxe Casual.”
Special Olympics is a global movement that unleashes the human spirit through the transformative power and joy of sports, every day around the world. We empower people with intellectual disabilities to become accepted and valued members of their communities, which leads to a more respectful and inclusive society for all. Using sports as the catalyst and programming around health and education, Special Olympics is fighting inactivity, injustice and intolerance. Founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the Special Olympics movement has grown to more than 5.7 million athletes and Unified partners in 172 countries. With the support of more than 1 million coaches and volunteers, Special Olympics delivers 32 Olympic-type sports and over 108,000 games and competitions throughout the year. Special Olympics is supported by many individuals, foundations and partners.
