It's after 11:00pm and I have just finished writing a Christmas card to Outback Steakhouse.
Tonight mom and I went to the Christmas banquet for Sandhills Teen Challenge - great organization; I will write more later - and the food was great! Russell's Seafood, a local seafood restaurant, donated a portion - was it the chicken? I can't remember now. And Outback supplied the baked potatoes. This is no small feat for either of these places considering there are 300 people attending this event... three nights in a row. So 900 potatoes and 1800 chicken tenders later, there are some full people! I realized on the way home that these businesses should be applauded. I immediately got on Facebook when I got home (I am a "Fan" of Russell's on Facebook) and posted kudos to them for their support of Teen Challenge. I'm not a "Fan" of Outback, plus I don't want these kudos to go to the corporate office. I want to thank our local branch for supporting such a worthy cause.
So I sent them a Christmas card thanking them for supporting Teen Challenge and telling them their baked potatoes were delicious (they were). I also said I would tell people about this. So here I am.
My question is, do you think they'll actually open it and read it?
