Every Purchase of Red Gold’s Folds of Honor Ketchup and bottle of Redneck Riviera Whiskey Supports Families of Fallen or Disabled Military Heroes
Nashville, TN June 18, 2020 –
Father’s Day lands this Sunday, June 21st, and although it may seem like the holiday is all about grilling and fantastic gifts, there’s certainly more to it. Of course, how we celebrate ‘Dad’ has changed through the years, but the reason why remains. This year, John Rich and Red Gold® Ketchup add a special twist.
As a wise man once said, "The quality of a father can be seen in the goals, dreams, and aspirations he sets not only for himself, but for his family." Taking the time to thank the man who raised you is so important. “Happy Father's Day to all the Daddy's out there...that's the MOST important job you have”, says John Rich, a father himself and proud supporter of Folds of Honor.
Since 2007, Folds of Honor has carried forth a singular, noble mission: “To stand in the financial gap of the more than one million dependents adversely affected by war, providing educational scholarships to the children and spouses of those fallen or disabled while serving our nation.” The organization has worked with corporate partners and private donors to award approximately 24,500 educational scholarships and 4,500 to military families in 2019 alone.
“It was the inspiration of seeing John Rich himself honoring veterans and his selfless support of Folds of Honor that inspired Red Gold to join the cause as an official Wingman and sponsor to the foundation with the mission to: Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate Their Legacy,” said Tim Ingle, Senior Vice President of Red Gold, who watched Big and Rich perform and honor our military veterans this past October at the 1st Annual Made in America Convention in Indianapolis. “I then saw John Rich’s Redneck Riviera Whiskey and its support of folds of Honor and knew right then that our company ownership would love to join the cause with our very own Red Gold Folds of Honor Ketchup”. Red Gold itself began in 1942 supporting our nation’s troops in WWII, and the tomato company is American Owned, Grown and Made™.
This father’s day, Americans across the nation will be able to honor the families of our military heroes while enjoying their meals and barbeques. What’s more, is that proceeds from the sales of Red Gold Ketchup will help fund the education of the families of those who lost their mom or dad in service. So to add one more moment this year as you celebrate this special day together, for those of legal age, kick back and sip some Redneck Riviera Whiskey, fire up the grill and support the truly All-American ketchup with a cause. Remember Red Gold for your burgers, fries and hot dogs. Happy Father’s Day America!
