Emory Valley Center partners with Oak Ridge Panda Express for fundraising

Thursday, Sept. 8, Emory Valley Center will partner with the Oak Ridge location of Panda Express for a fundraising opportunity.

The center will receive a portion of the purchases made by all customers who choose to mention Emory Valley Center, giving Panda Express the ability to give back to the community.

The event will run from 10 a.m. - 9:30 p.m. and is open to anyone in the community who chooses to dine with Panda Express and mention Emory Valley Center at checkout.

Once the $100 minimum purchase requirement is met, Emory Valley Center will receive 20-percent of the total event sales. For more information and to view an event flyer, customers can visit the Emory Valley Center Facebook page.

Emory Valley Center and Oak Ridge Panda Express look forward to this partnership and are excited to bring it to the community. The center hopes that members of the community will be able to learn more about the work it does and the services it provides, while also giving patrons the opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal while giving back.
