Mother-Son Date Knight is a (K)night to Remember
Tuesday evening, the Chick-fil-A Lynnwood location hosted its third annual Mother-Son Date Knight. The owner/operator of the restaurant, Paul Rosser, said the event is part of a nationwide Chick-fil-A series of evenings intended to bring the surrounding community together while emphasizing the importance of setting aside time for family. “One of Chick-fil-A’s goals is to become the most caring company in the world,” he said.
The Chick-fil-A employees acted as hosts and servers, greeting families while dressed in renaissance-inspired gowns and crowns. Reservations for the medieval-themed event cornered off the inward section of the restaurant, with individual table settings for each mother-son date.
Attendees were given a crest to color along with a crown of their own. Families placed orders while seated and were able to connect using conversation starting tips placed on tables. Each duo also received a gift bag with a take home pamphlet, providing them with future bonding opportunities outside of the event.
Valeri Sevieux attended with her son Charlie, saying she appreciated that Chick-fil-A hosts family oriented events. “I think it’s great that they gave us a special time just for us to make memories,” she said.
Throughout the year, Chick-fil-A Lynnwood plans to hold events for mothers and daughters, fathers and sons and fathers and daughters. “It’s really fun to put on these events for families,” said Taylor Ward, Marketing Director of the Lynnwood Chick-fil-A. “We like to do as much as we can with the community because it’s one of the best ways to get to know them.”
The next big event, anticipated for June, will be Chick-fil-A’s princess-themed Daddy-Daughter Date Night.
