Olive Garden to host Spirit Night celebration for local high schools

Olive Garden and the NFHS Network, the nation’s leading high school sports media company, recently announced they are teaming up to recognize Team Moms and the high school athletes they support. To celebrate this partnership, on select dates in April, every Olive Garden restaurant nationwide will host a Spirit Night event to celebrate a local high school.

The restaurant at 1425 Klumac Rd. will be partnering with Salisbury High School for the event.

Guests are encouraged to wear the school colors and join in the celebration. This initiative is part of Olive Garden’s ongoing commitment to support its local communities.

Each Olive Garden location has selected a local high school to partner with in its community and has provided team dining discounts and donations to the athletics program. Since the beginning of the partnership, Olive Garden restaurants nationwide donated more than $570,000 to local schools.

This is the second of two national Spirit Nights this school year, which encourages the community to get involved in celebrating the high school and partnership.

The Spirit Night will take place on April 12 from 4 to 10 p.m. at all Olive Garden locations. To find your nearest location, visit OliveGarden.com.
