A Rewarding Partnership

By Shiyra Sadoff

Since the summer of 2011,  Copeland’s of New Orleans-Atlanta Franchise (Copeland’s  Atlanta)  has been a big booster of  CURE Childhood Cancer, which is dedicated to conquering childhood cancer through funding targeted research and support of patients and their families.

In 2012 Copeland’s placed a plaque on the outside fountain of its two restaurants–at Cumberland and Kennesaw–that dedicates all change in the fountain to CURE Childhood Cancer. As they enter and exit the two restaurants, customers get involved with CURE as well by tossing coins that  impact CURE families. When you make a wish, you’re answering the wishes of a CURE family!

Since 2011, the restaurants have partnered with CURE as an Open Arms at Lunch sponsor by providing and serving lunches several times a year, including Thanksgiving day. Open Arms is a program in which weekly meals are delivered to the CURE children and families in the Aflac Cancer Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston and Scottish Rite Hospitals. These meals help bring a sense of home and comfort to patients and their families.  During Christmas, gift certificates for Copeland’s famous Cajun Fried Turkeys are donatedto CURE families outside the hospitals.

In 2012 and 2013, Copeland’s donated 20% of the proceeds from a Saturday brunch at the two restaurants on the week before Easter, which raised almost $2200.00.  Last September, it provided restaurant gift cards to the mothers at CURE’s Quiet Heroes luncheon.

Bill Goudey, CEO of Copeland’s Atlanta franchise, says that what makes him so dedicated to this cause is, “Seeing your own kids that you are caring for and hoping that they never have to go through that.” This cause is very close to Bill’s heart as he has two young children and also lost his parents to cancer as well. The common goal to fund cancer research has given Copeland’s and CURE a strong bond and the motivation to work together.

Copeland’s goes out of its way to make sure that CURE families are taken care of. Lisa Branch, Director of Patient Services at CURE, stated that, “Our patients and their families are grateful for each meal and CURE is grateful to wonderful restaurants like Copeland’s who are making a difference for families who have a child diagnosed with cancer.”

Feel free to toss a coin during your visit to Copeland’s and help us make their wishes come true!

2013 CURE Benefit Luncheon!

Image

We are happy to announce, again, that both our locations will be offering a special buffet to benefit CURE Childhood Cancer!  

The buffet will be available Saturday, March 23 from 11am – 2pm. It costs a low $14.99, and we will donate 20% of the proceeds to CURE!

The buffet will feature a variety of breakfast items as well as shrimp, chicken, pasta, wings, salmon, fried fish, mac n’ cheese, mashed sweet potatoes, red beans and rice, a variety of desserts, and so much more!

Last year, we raised an amount of $1,429.40 for CURE Childhood Cancer, and we drew in over 467 people!! That is so great!!

Our goal this year is to have even more people come to the benefit and raise twice as much for this amazing cause!

Our CEO, Bill Goudey, says that what makes him so dedicated to this cause is, “Seeing your own kids that you are caring for and hoping that they never have to go through that.” Bill has two young children, and says that a dedication to the families as a whole is what makes him motivated to help. His mother and father both passed away from cancer. In memory of our founder Al Copeland, we started the Al Copeland Foundation in 2008 after he lost his battle to cancer.

The common goal to fund cancer research, has given us and CURE an incredible bond. Our goal is to have a relationship with CURE Childhood Cancer until the cure is found!!

Come out on the 23rd, enjoy a wonderful meal, and help us support the “CURE” for cancer!
