Kangaroo Express Celebrates National Hot Dog Day
CARY, N.C. -- The Pantry's Kangaroo Express is inviting customers to celebrate National Hot Dog Day and help "Salute Our Troops" on Monday, July 23. All 1,160 grill-ready Kangaroo Express convenience stores will offer guests a free Ball Park hot dog from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The free hot dogs are limited to one per customer while supplies last. Customers can save $1.39 on the hot dog, or pair it with a Roo Cup refill for just 25 cents.
Kangaroo Express guests can enjoy their hot dog --an iconic part of American celebrations -- and support military men and women by donating to the Salute Our Troops fundraising campaign, the company stated.
"National Hot Dog Day is a holiday that all Americans can support, whether it's about their love for the hot dog itself or about the pride and patriotism that it represents," said John Fisher, senior vice president of marketing, merchandising and restaurant operations, Kangaroo Express. "What better way is there to celebrate than to show our customers -- and our military -- that we care about them? We invite you to come into Kangaroo Express to enjoy a free hot dog on us, and help support the troops who protect our freedoms."
Through Labor Day, Kangaroo Express is asking its customers to make donations to Salute Our Troops, which directly supports United Services Organizations (USO), the Wounded Warrior Project and six state-based military organizations.
Salute Our Troops raised $2.5 million in 2011, its inaugural year, breaking fundraising records for many beneficiary organizations, including the largest grassroots fundraising initiative in the USO's 70-year history, according to Kangaroo Express.
