Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc., the Official Burger of the Florida State University Seminoles®, is donating $61,192 to FSU on Wednesday, January 17th, 2007 at the `Noles home basketball game against Virginia Tech.
David Crawford, Director of Marketing at Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc., and Checkers® franchisee, Pete Pandza, will present the check during halftime. The nearly $62,000 donation comes from Checkers popular “Choose Your Champ” Challenge, combined with a $25,000 contribution from Checkers corporate headquarters.
