BRG Foundation, City Group Hospitality Team Up for Restaurant Week

BATON ROUGE, La. – The Baton Rouge General Foundation is teaming up with City Group Hospitality (CGH) for a special Restaurant Week, with 10% of proceeds from Nov. 8-12 benefitting the hospital’s CARE Initiative. Patrons can visit CGH’s Baton Rouge locations -- Beausoleil, City Pork Highland, City Pork Jefferson, City Slice Pints & Pizza, Proverbial Wine Bistro and Rouj Creole -- and dine from their unique prix fixe menu.

BRG Foundation’s CARE Initiative, which stands for Community, Access, Resources, and Education, aims to tackle some of the most common issues keeping patients from achieving full health, including transportation, medical equipment and food insecurity. The Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation will match donations up to $25,000.

“Our team sees the challenges patients face every day,” said Erik Showalter, president of the BRG Foundation. “Many patients struggle to get to the hospital for their radiation visits or to afford a ramp at their home after leaving our skilled nursing unit. Through this initiative, we’re going to make an impact together with our community partners, and we are happy to have City Group Hospitality be a part of it.”

“I am so excited about City Group Hospitality partnering with the Baton Rouge General,” said Stephen Hightower, Managing Partner, City Group Hospitality. “Their community outreach aligns with what we try to accomplish. Our mission is to always do our part for the Baton Rouge community.”

Through the CARE Initiative, the BRG Foundation works with local groups like Rebuilding Together Baton Rouge, which will help install wheelchair ramps, and Top Box to help with the proper nutrition to supplement a patient’s treatment. Also part of the initiative is growing existing partnerships with Yellow Cab, Uber and Lyft, which the hospital uses currently to provide free transportation for Pennington Cancer Center patients.
