Last night I had the to opportunity to dine at Maggiano’s Little Italy, sampling their fabulous brunch menu and learning about their amazing partnership with the Georgia Make-A-Wish foundation.
Maggiano’s has partnered with MAW for fourteen years now and raised over $7 million dollars in the process! This year Maggiano’s is offering the opportunity for everyone to help raise money by offering “Brunch with a Purpose”.
Who doesn’t love a casual brunch on the weekend?
With each brunch entree purchased $1 goes directly to the Make-A-Wish foundation. With the funds raised this year, Maggiano’s is looking to grant their 1000th wish for a child whose life has been affected by life-threatening medical conditions.
Last night at “Brunch with a Purpose” we were able to learn much about the partnership Maggiano’s has with MAW, meet one of the children they have granted a wish to, and sample much of the brunch menu.
Ellie, an eleven year old MAW child, was on hand to assist Chef Thomas Wenning making lemon ricotta pancakes… Oh my goodness these were fabulous!
Beside the Lemon Ricotta pancakes, we also tasted the crab-cake eggs benedict, meatball eggs benedict, creme brûlée French toast, a spinach frittata and the most heavenly bacon I’ve ever tasted!
Check out a glimpse of this fabulous brunch menu that reflects the Italian cuisine Maggiano’s is know for, combined with all your favorite brunch delights!
