LeBron James Family Foundation serves the Akron community by funding
educational and co-curricular activities for local youth through its I PROMISE
Program. With each new store opening, we aim to make a positive impact in
our local communities. And what better way than through the LeBron James Family
Foundation for Piada Akron's Grand Opening?
days prior to our Grand Opening, we opened our doors for a private tasting for
two Foundation families.
They were selected by the Foundation for their impeccable
rate of participation and represented in their “WE ARE FAMILY” tees.
Our Team Members also repped the WE ARE FAMILY tees.
The Foundation families sampled
our sides and beverages, and were fed delicious meals.
WKYC3 was even there to interview our families.
The private tasting was a success! Next up - our Grand Opening.
The line was to the door all day. It even wrapped around our dining room throughout most of the evening. Needless to say, the community of Akron kept us busy ;)
We matched every dollar donated to the Foundation at the register during Piada Akron's first week. With the community's help, we raised $5,000 for The LeBron James Family Foundation.
Basketball hoops were set up outside the store and Guests had the opportunity to win Free Piada for a Year or a pair of LeBron James game-worn shoes.
Piada Akron was our 37th, but it might just create a 1st for a local kid. Read more about our partnership with The LeBron James Family Foundation here.
