Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

ATLANTA -- All of the Chick-fil-A restaurants in metro Atlanta will host a special mother-son Date Knight on Saturday, Apr. 28.

The Date Knight format will be similar to that of the franchise's massively popular Daddy-Daughter Date Nights. It will give mothers and sons a special chance to enjoy some quality time together.

The event will have a medieval theme, hence the "Knight" part of its title.

"One of Chick-fil-A's goals is to promote community connections and enrich the lives of everyone we come in contact with," Robin Lomax, Chick-fil-A area marketing director, said in a statement. "We understand the importance of mother-son relationships and want to encourage local moms to come to Chick-fil-A, enjoy their sons' company over a meal and have fun."

Charter supports United Way shoebox project

ATLANTA -- United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta is holding its annual shoebox project through the first day of May.

To participate in the project, simply wrap a shoebox (make sure the box and lid are wrapped separately) and fill it with new, unopened necessities for local women and children in need. Possible items include toothbrushes, toothpaste, lotion, deodorant and words of encouragement for the families who will receive the boxes.

Those who upload pictures of their decorated shoeboxes to the United Way Facebook page or tweet pictures of them with the hashtag #shoeboxproject will be entered to win two round-trip tickets from Delta Air Lines, according to United Way spokesman David Graves.

This year, five Charter Communications sales and service centers throughout the metro will collect shoeboxes from the public to deliver to the United Way.
