Local Steak ’N Shakes Hit Donation Milestone With $100,000 Going To Children’s Hospital At Erlanger

Tuesday, July 2, 2019

Erlanger Health System and Debo’s Diners, local Steak ’N Shake franchise, celebrated a milestone in fundraising efforts donating $100,000 to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger on Tuesday. 

In attendance at the event were: Debbie Richman, owner and president of Debo’s Diners; Mike Richman, vice president of Debo’s Diners; Don Mueller, CEO of Children’s Hospital at Erlanger; Steven Wagner, executive director of development for Erlanger Health System Foundations; Stefanie Wittler-Beavers, director of development for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals; and Steak’N’Shake mascots.

Richman said local diners can help this franchise meet their contribution goal in two ways. “Every Tuesday we are donating a portion of our sales to the Believe campaign, and every day we are providing guests the opportunity to round up their checks as a contribution to the children’s hospital,” he continued.

In 2018, Debo’s Diners donated $40,000 to the Believe Campaign benefiting Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.
