)-- On Thursday, September 27, 2018, Panini Kabob Grill, in co-sponsorship with the city of Playa Vista, will join the community in its first Firefighter Appreciation Night. The event is held in support of the California Fire Foundation’s annual Firefighter Appreciation Month, which takes place every September to acknowledge local firefighters’ countless acts of service and heroism to the community. The city of Playa Vista will host the event at Concert Park from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
Panini Kabob Grill has a history of actively supporting firefighters and previously participated in Firefighter Appreciation Month last year. Through their efforts in 2017, they fundraised over $14k for the California Fire Foundation, which provides emotional and financial assistance to families of fallen firefighters, firefighters, and the communities they protect. This year, they further their support by hosting Firefighter Appreciation Night at Concert Park in Playa Vista. This community event will fundraise for the foundation by selling food and products from other participating local businesses. Participating vendors will donate various amounts of event sales to the CA Fire Foundation while Panini Kabob Grill will donate 100% of any proceeds from this event to the foundation.
Juliet Tran, Panini Kabob Grill’s Director of Marketing, says, “Firefighters are our everyday heroes. It’s our pleasure to be able to make this small gesture to thank them for putting their lives on the line for us every single day.”
Panini Kabob Grill has built a reputation for giving back to every community it has joined by fundraising, volunteering their time, and donating their Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food. However, instead of the traditional booth they usually use, Panini Kabob Grill will bring out their recently acquired trailer and serve their signature kabobs freshly off the grill. This trailer is utilized solely for the purpose of donating 100% of their fresh fare and any proceeds to charitable causes only.
Firefighter Appreciation Night is open to everyone in order to celebrate and appreciate and celebrate local first responders’ bravery and continued commitment to protecting the community.
