Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on May 21st, 2014

The 2014 grads in Ballard have yet another reason to celebrate, free burgers!

From now through June 21 all Dick’s Drive-In stores (our closest being 9208 Holman Rd NW) are giving away free cheeseburgers and regular hamburgers to this year’s high school and college graduates.

This is the 19th annual Dick’s Grad Giveaway which is held to celebrate academic achievement and over $1.3 million in employee college scholarships

“Graduation season is one of our favorite times of the year,” said Jim Spady, Dick’s Drive-In vice president, “It’s an important milestone and we love seeing all the grads in their colorful caps and gowns. It’s our way of saying congratulations for a job well done.”

According to Spady, education is a cornerstone of Dick’s Drive-Ins’ community investments. “We offer our employees up to $22,000 in college scholarship funds over four years, to help them earn associate, bachelor and even graduate degrees. It’s the most important investment we make every year,” said Spady.

Congratulations to all grads and enjoy your free burger!
