It was a gathering of sorts with local personalities and bloggers. Erin from A Parenting Production and Jennifer from the Clueless Chick were there. We sat at the long table in PDQ that was specially arranged with gingham check tablecloths similar to those at Angus Barn. We listened to Bob Basham (co-founder of PDQ) and Van Eure (owner of the Angus Barn) talk about their partnership in raising awareness and support for The Foundation of Hope for Research and Treatment of Mental Illness.
Walter Royal, the Executive Chef of the Angus Barn unveiled his newest creation, the Royal Chicken Sandwich, to be sold specifically in Triangle area, Fayetteville and Winston-Salem PDQ restaurants. We all got to taste the fresh chicken marinated in Chef Royal’s signature cracked pepper honey topped with bacon, pickles, and lettuce served on a brioche bun with homemade BBQ ranch sauce. The best part of this sandwich was that for every purchase of the “Royal Chicken Sandwich”, PDQ would donate $1 to The Foundation of Hope.
The Foundation of Hope promotes scientific research aimed at discovering the causes and potential cures for mental illness in order to develop a more effective means of treatment. We are committed to raising community awareness and supporting effective treatment programs.
The Foundation provides financial support for ongoing and new research and treatment, as well as the development of researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, its affiliated psychiatric institutions, and local mental health agencies.
