One week after the opening of the first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Hawaii, owner Danny Mabalot thanked his local first responders by inviting them to lunch at his new location. Three local fire departments, police departments and EMS were in attendance.
“At Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, we pride ourselves on being an integral part of the community and especially giving back to those that risk their lives to keep us safe,” says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “I am honored to have such an amazing turnout at our first responder event at our Hawaii location and look forward to seeing the store’s future success and Danny’s continued commitment to first responders.”
For this event, Danny worked closely with The Dickey Foundation, Dickey’s charitable organization that sets out to support those that protect us.
“The Dickey Foundation was created to support the brave men and women who keep our nation’s communities safe,” says Maurine Dickey, Founder of The Dickey Foundation. “I had the pleasure of attending the Hawaii first responder event and truly enjoyed meeting the first responders from the Kapolei area.”
