NILES, Ill., Oct. 8, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — What if you could have a great meal, and do good at the same time? You can, because Graziano’s Brick Oven Pizza continues to celebrate its 20th anniversary year by raising funds for Advocate Medical Group’s Adult Down Syndrome Center in October. When guests mention the Adult Down Syndrome Center to their Graziano’s server, 20 percent of their total food and beverage spend will be donated to the Center. This special offer extends the entire month of October, which is Down Syndrome Awareness month.

In addition, a special evening fundraiser is planned for October 28, 2014 at Graziano’s. From 5-9 p.m. that evening, guests who contribute $25 to the Adult Down Syndrome Center at the door can meet other supporters of the Center, as well as staff and doctors. Appetizers, wine, beer and soft drinks will be provided. All proceeds will benefit the Adult Down Syndrome Center.

Graziano’s has a proud history of community involvement, supporting local schools, religious and charitable organizations. In addition, Graziano’s is actively engaged in raising money for charities for individuals with developmental disabilities such as The Adult Down Syndrome Center at Lutheran General Hospital, Orchard Village and Misericordia.
