It’s that time of year when senioritis and “all-nighters” give way to graduation celebrations and free cheeseburgers.
Dick’s Drive-In Restaurants announced today their 18th annual grad giveaway with a free cheeseburger or regular hamburger, now through June 21, for any high school or college graduate who shows up at any Dick’s Drive-In in their cap and gown. One of their locations is just west of Mountlake Terrace at 21910 Highway 99.
“Graduation season is one of our favorite times of the year,” said Jim Spady, Dick’s Drive-In Vice-President. “It’s an important milestone and we love seeing all the grads in their colorful caps and gowns. It’s our way of saying congratulations for a job well done.”
Spady added that Dick’s Drive-Ins has made education a cornerstone of their community investments. “We offer our employees up to $22,000 in college scholarship funds over four years, to help them earn associate, bachelor and even graduate degrees. It’s the most important investment we make every year,” said Spady.
The company has given over $1.3 million in college scholarships to employees in the past 21 years. There are currently 59 employees enrolled in the scholarship program. To qualify, employees must work at least 20 hours a week while in college.
