Eden Prairie, Minnesota-5 February, 2010 WAND Corporation is donating a digital restaurant to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. WAND announced today it has helped to raise over $80,000 for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
By donating a WAND Digital™ menu board solution and a NextGen POS point of sale software solution, the contributions were raised via a live auction at the Wendy’s 2009 Convention held November, 2009, in Las Vegas. The event also marked the 40th anniversary of the Wendy’s brand, founded by Dave Thomas. WAND has been part of the Wendy’s community for 20 years delivering restaurant technology solutions to over 1,600 Wendy’s restaurants.
Additional WAND partners who participated in the auction included LG Electronics, Samsung, NCR, and Digital Persona.
“We are honored to work with WAND Corporation on this important cause,” said Rita Soronen, executive director of the Foundation. “Together, we can find homes for the 123,000 children who remain in the United States foster care system waiting for an adoptive family of their own.”
“We are very pleased with the work the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption has accomplished since its formation in 1992, and are privileged to help them continue their work for this worthy cause” said Greg Perrill, WAND’s Chief Operating Officer.
