The Alliance for Full Acceptance (AFFA) is launching a new discount card offering a 15% price break cardholders looking to support local restaurants and benefit the nonprofit’s work. To start, The Indigo Road Restaurant Group’s seven area establishments will offer the discounts, and AFFA is inviting other restaurants to participate.
Here’s how it works: Purchase your AFFA Local’s Card and receive 15% off each time you visit participating restaurants from now through the end of 2021. The card costs $100 and all proceeds go to AFFA, a social justice nonprofit that aims to “achieve, nurture and defend equality and full acceptance for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and LGBTQ+ people.”
The discount is applicable on beverages 4-8 p.m. and food any time for bills totaling less than $500. (Food specials, catering and events and other items a the manager’s discretion may also not be eligible.)
“Together, we’re hoping the local community will help raise money for our organization and get themselves (safely and smartly) back to restaurants to support an industry that has been so crucial to fundraising with their generous donations, time and gifts over the years,” an AFFA spokesperson said via email.
Proceeds from card purchases will benefit AFFA programming like its Trans Love Fund, which provides emergency funds to trans-identified individuals throughout South Carolina.
Cardholders receive a discount at all of The Indigo Road’s local restaurants: Mercantile and Mash, Bar Mash, Indaco, The Cocktail Club, The Macintosh, O-Ku Sushi and Oak Steakhouse. Other restaurants interested in participating can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
