The Dalton Depot restaurant has accepted a challenge from the Alzheimer’s Association to raise $5,000. The owner of the restaurant, T.J. Kaikobad, has agreed to wear pajamas for an entire day of work if his staff can reach this goal.
The staff members have divided into teams and each team designed an outrageous pajama outfit for Kaikobad to wear. The team that raises the most money gets to see their dedicated boss work for an entire day in the outfit they designed.
Staff members have accepted the challenge and are working hard to raise funds. A website is available at www.tjpj.kintera.org for online donations. In addition, staff members are selling paper flowers for $1 with all proceeds going towards the cause. Customers can vote on their favorite outfit by donating money to the team with the best design. Designs are on display in the restaurant lobby. The staff is asking for community participation in their efforts. They only have until Christmas Eve to meet their goal.
The Dalton Depot will announce a date for T.J.’s pajama day via its Facebook page. Breakfast specials will be available on this day, and T.J. will be in the restaurant all day for people to see his pajama outfit.
The Dalton Depot is a historic restaurant in the original Dalton train depot, serving fine dining in a casual atmosphere. The Alzheimer’s Association works towards increasing awareness about the Alzheimer’s disease and raising funds for research.
