April 14 and 15: Waffle House Food Truck Comes to Northside Hospital Cherokee Location
Tennis is once again “giving back” in times of need! The Truist Atlanta Open is joining with partner, CIGNA, to feed some of Metro Atlanta’s frontline healthcare workers at Northside Hospital Cherokee on behalf of GF Sports, Truist Atlanta Open, CIGNA and Waffle House.
The Waffle House Food Truck will visit Northside Hospital Cherokee (450 Northside Cherokee Blvd, Canton) on Tuesday, April 14, from 10am-2pm to feed the daytime shift and on Wednesday, April 15, from 8pm-12am for the night shift.
“Northside Hospital and Waffle House are two of key partners, not only during the nine days of the Truist Atlanta Open, but throughout the year,” offers Eddie Gonzalez, Truist Atlanta Open Tournament Director. “They, like many others, are being affected by COVID-19.”
The Truist Atlanta Open and its partners wanted to do something for those right in their own community, so bringing an Atlanta institution like Waffle House out seemed like a perfect fit.
With the merger of BB&T and SunTrust Bank, the BB&T Atlanta Open has now become the Truist Atlanta Open as the popular Midtown Atlanta event celebrates its 10th Anniversary. A new “10th Anniversary” logo also debuted as tickets also went on sale.
This is one of the 10 ATP World Tour events in the United States, and annually takes place at Atlantic Station in Midtown. Play this year will run from July 25 to August 2, and fans will be able to start to purchase tickets on SeatGeek and online soon at www.atlantaopentennis.com.
“We’re not just a tennis tournament, we’re a major community event,” added Gonzalez. “We have tremendous community partners, and they have stepped up in critical times. It’s our way of doing something to help support Northside Hospital and those hero frontline healthcare workers, along with our great partner Waffle House who is being hit through this as well , with all of their stores being closed other than take out.”
There are over 2100 Waffle House locations across the country.
