LYNCHBURG, Va. – One of Lynchburg’s oldest restaurants is relishing a milestone by hosting a special event to help fight hunger.
You can drop off donations at their two locations on Main and Cornerstone Streets -- for the next 86 days.
General Manager Rhonda Rankin says the number 86 has a significant meaning in the restaurant industry.
“‘Eighty-six’ is a term that we use in the restaurant business everywhere. Eighty-six means you’re out of something, so we’re trying to 86 hunger, get rid of hunger. So, we partnered with the Lynchburg area food bank,” said Rankin.
The restaurant will also sell 86-cent hotdogs on Oct. 11 to mark their anniversary.
