Sixteenth year is sweet for No Frill Bar and Grill annual CHKD fundraiser

HAMPTON ROADS, Va. –-Patrons of the No Frill Bar and Grill satisfied their appetites while supporting CHKD this winter during the restaurant’s annual fundraiser. The restaurant donated $1 to CHKD for every appetizer and dessert purchased at the Norfolk and Ghent locations. Last week, No Frill Bar and Grill owner, Jerry Meltsner, presented CHKD with a check for $5,127.

This is the 16th year that No Frill Bar and Grill has raised money for the hospital. To date, the restaurant has donated more than $57,737 to CHKD.

“We are so grateful that No Frill Bar and Grill has continued to do this for 16 years in a row,” said CHKD Executive Director of Development Karen Gershman. “Strong annual support from committed community businesses like No Frill Bar and Grill are instrumental in helping CHKD care for local children.”

CHKD is the only freestanding children’s hospital in Virginia and serves the medical and surgical needs of children throughout greater Hampton Roads, the Eastern Shore of Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. CHKD Health System operates primary-care pediatric practices, surgical practices, multi-service Health Centers and satellite offices throughout its service region.
