PRESS RELEASE – April 21, 2020
DALLAS – Rosewood Ranches and the Caroline Rose Hunt Family are proud to partner with the Dallas Mavericks and local restaurants to feed the medical workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 fight in Dallas.
The first of thousands of meals are being delivered this week to an estimated 4,000 health professionals at local hospitals including Medical City, Parkland Hospital, Texas Health Resources and UT Southwestern.
The meals are prepared by local chefs at well-known Dallas restaurants like Pecan Lodge, Nick & Sam’s and Off the Bone BBQ. Each entrée comes with a cut of premium Texas Wagyu Beef, donated by Rosewood Ranches, along with side dishes donated by the Mavs Foundation and local restaurants. In all, the group hopes to provide more than 11,000 meals to healthcare workers, first responders and others on the front lines through the partnership.
“For weeks now, local doctors and nurses have been on the front lines caring for the sick and protecting our community while spending long hours away from family,” said Lynn Fisher, Rosewood Director of Corporate Giving. “Rosewood Ranches and the Caroline Rose Hunt family want to show our appreciation for their service and help ensure these brave men and women are taken care of as they continue to fight this battle against COVID-19.”
“Our nurses, doctors and hospital staff are sacrificing so much and working 24/7 to take care of patients. This is the least we can do to make sure they are well fed and have enough energy to make it through each day. We cannot thank them enough for all they are doing to fight COVID-19 here at home,” said Mavs CEO Cynt Marshall.
To date, the Mavs have donated over $1.7 million in food, hand sanitizer, personal protective gear, salary to game night event staff and cash to hospitals, non-profits and first responders during the coronavirus pandemic.
