“Folds of Honor wouldn’t be able to provide scholarships to these deserving families if it weren’t for the generous support of extraordinary companies like bd’s Mongolian Grill,” Chick Linski, senior vice president of the Folds of Honor Foundation, said in a release. “We are extremely excited with the outcome of this partnership. No one deserves this money more than the Kafka family.”

From Oct. 29 through Veterans Day on Nov. 11, guests at create-your-own-stir-fry bd’s Mongolian Grill locations supported Folds of Honor by purchasing $2 pin-ups to display in the restaurants. Guests were able to write-in who they “dedicated” the pin-up to (Active, Veteran or Family Member). And on Veterans Day, each bd’s location donated 10 percent of food sales to local Folds of Honor chapters. Mongolian Concepts raised more than $43,000 for Folds of Honor through this year’s campaign.
