Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux, one of Tuscaloosa's newest restaurants, is locally launching its Level Up campaign to raise money for the Walk-On’s Game On Foundation

“Walk-On’s Game On Foundation was created with a mission to improve and support youth sports by providing equipment and funding projects that include rebuilding or refurbishing sports facilities,” a spokesperson for the Louisiana-based restaurant said in a press release. 

From July 1 to Oct. 30, online and restaurant guests will be able to make donations to the foundation and support youth sports in the Tuscaloosa community.

As of Friday, the company had not selected a specific project in Tuscaloosa to fund with the donations, but the program has primarily refurbished basketball courts in other communities, and a Walk-Ons representative told the Thread they expect the projects in Tuscaloosa to be similar 

The initiative kicked off on July 1, and until it ends, 15% of all online retail proceeds will be donated to the foundation.

Guests can donate through mobile orders or in-restaurant at the end of their bill.

Starting on Sept. 1, Walk-On’s loyalty members will be offered a free slider with a $10 donation from online orders.

“At Walk-On’s, community service is at the core of everything we do,” said the restaurant's Founder and CEO Brandon Landry. “The Game On Foundation solves localized problems by giving the athletes of tomorrow a better, cleaner and safer place to play sports. We look forward to being able to build better places to play across the country.”

Walk-On’s opened in Tuscaloosa  at 675 Skyland Blvd E in late May, bringing a taste of Baton Rouge to the Druid City with their made-from-scratch dishes.
