Dillon's Fight

Frederick, Maryland

We are excited to announce that

Foster's Grille

has proudly joined the ranks of Dillon’s Army!

Beginning on Monday, June 2nd, and continuing on THE FIRST MONDAY OF EACH MONTH until the end of the year, Foster’s Grille, located at 8925 Fingerboard Road in Turning Point Center, will donate 25% of all sales proceeds to the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation. Furthermore, Foster’s will match any amount raised through your patronage. 

The NNPDF, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit, works to support  and promote research to find treatments and a cure for Niemann-Pick Disease (NPD).  As a rare orphan disease with fewer than 500 diagnosed cases in the US, funding on a national level is slim, and families are left with few options for their children.  The families of the NNPDF in a true “grass-roots effort” have taken on the challenge head-on and work diligently to raise funds to assist with the support of this vital and potentially life-saving research.

Please plan on joining your friends and neighbors on Mondays at Foster’s Grille.

Never doubt how your small gesture can make a big difference to the Papier family and others with children living with this horrible disease.  Every dollar raised brings new hope!
