“From the beginning, I’ve been grateful for our Crew, Customers and Communities that have supported my dream,” Graves said. “That’s why taking care of our Crewmembers and getting involved at the local level, especially here in our home state, have been a huge part of who we are. I’m proud that we are a growing company of serving leaders and what better way to celebrate 25 years of business than to give back $25 million to the Communities we serve!”

On Aug. 25 at 10 a.m., Todd Graves will be at “The Mothership” restaurant at Highland Road and State Street to present a $25,000 check to two Baton Rouge area organizations — the Baton Rouge Area Foundation and Feeding Louisiana.
