Ann Arbor Area Community News
via The Courier-Journal and an email I received:
“SUMMARY: Another sign of the times. This story concerns a local restaurant, Max & Erma’s, that’s part of a chain throughout the Midwest. It has a program where non-profit charitable groups can hold fundraisers at a particular restaurant and collect 20% of the profits. But last week, when a Louisville AIDS group asked to participate, it was turned down. Last night on WHAS-TV’s 11 pm newscast, Linda Underwood, spokesperson for the group, alleged that the restaurant told her it does not allow AIDS fundraisers on its premises because of the “negative political fallout” such a fundraiser might cause.
I don’t think Max & Erma’s has seen anything like the negative political fallout it’s about to experience.—David Williams, The Letter, Louisville
Corporate headquarters is 4849 Evanswood Dr., Columbus, OH 43229; phone: 614/431-5800: ask to speak to Mr. Robin Yocum. Their web site is at maxandermas.com . They have a button, “Contact us,” that’s designed mainly for customers of the chain to leave comments about the food, but I figured it might be an easy way for people to lodge their protests. I left my comments there.”
