In an interview earlier this year, Derek Holland expressed his love of Red
Robin's milkshakes. To celebrate Holland's love of the frosty treat on
National Chocolate Milkshake Day, Holland will visit the Grapevine Red Robin
from 11:00 a.m. to noon, the Arlington Highlands Red Robin from 12:30 to 1:30
p.m., and the newest Fort Worth Red Robin at Hulen Mall from 2:00 to 3:00
p.m.* During these times, Holland will serve shakes to guests and sign
autographs for fans at each location.
"I've always enjoyed Red Robin's milkshakes, and I'm excited to not only serve
up shakes to fans at three Red Robin restaurants, but also to give back to
such a worthy cause," said Derek Holland, Texas MLB pitcher. "I hope that
both fans of Red Robin and my team will come out on National Chocolate
Milkshake Day to enjoy a great shake and support the Tarrant Area Food
Guests who purchase any of Red Robin's Malt Shoppe Shakes – including classic
flavors like chocolate and vanilla, and Red Robin favorites like the Mint
Brownie Shake, Salted Caramel Shake, Cookie Magic, or the new Spiced Pumpkin
Pie Shake – will support an important local cause, Tarrant Area Food Bank.
Tarrant Area Food Bank, a private nonprofit, is a primary source of donated
food for 300 hunger-relief charities in 13 counties surrounding Fort Worth,
Texas. All sales of milkshakes on Sept. 12 will be donated to the food bank to
support its distribution of over 2 million pounds of food per month, as well
as Kids Cafes, BackPacks for Kids and, feeding programs for senior citizens.
"We invite Texas MLB fans and Red Robin guests to join us at Red Robin on
National Chocolate Milkshake Day to celebrate an American classic – the
craveable Red Robin milkshake," said Denny Marie Post, Red Robin's senior vice
president and chief marketing officer. "A true American treat, milkshakes and
burgers are the perfect pair, especially when the shakes are served by a
hometown hero and support a good cause."
"We are thrilled that Red Robin is supporting the Tarrant Area Food Bank on
National Chocolate Milkshake Day with the help of local sports figure Derek
Holland," said JoAnn Biggers, TAFB community development liaison. "In our
service region, one of six individuals struggles with hunger, including one of
four children. With a $1 donation, TAFB can provide up to five meals worth of
food, so we know Red Robin's donation will make a big difference for numerous
people who may not otherwise be able to afford a meal.
