Two restaurant groups team up in fundraiser for Leukemia Society

-A +A
Two area restaurant groups—The Old Spaghetti Factory and Brookfield’s Restaurants— are joining forces in a one-day effort to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphona Society of Sacramento. On Monday, Oct. 20, a percentage of all sales from their seven restaurants will be donated to the society. The idea came about when George Dariotis, a principal with OSF in California, and Sam Manolakas, president of Brookfield’s, got together recently. Dariotis’ wife was getting involved in the society’s “Team in Training.” Though Dariotis and Manolakas are friendly rivals in the family restaurant business, they decided to get involved, too. Participating restaurants are the Old Spaghetti Factories in Sacramento, Rancho Cordova, Roseville and Elk Grove, plus the Brookfield’s in Sacramento, Roseville and Rancho Cordova. Receipts for the entire day will be counted in figuring the donation. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training program offers various endurance programs to help participants train for athletic events including marathons, half-marathons, swimming, biking and triathlons.
