Denny’s Announced As Presenting Sponsor Of 19th Annual Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage® Cruise – The Party With A Purpose®!
America’s Diner joins the charitable cruise for a week-long celebration of empowerment, community and entertainment sailing April 29, 2018
The Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage® presented by Denny’s will feature more than 60 live entertainment acts, including An Evening with Anita Baker and performances from popular artists Chris Brown, Tamar Braxton, The O’Jays, The Isley Brothers, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, En Vogue, 112, SWV and more. The action-packed seven-day itinerary boasts of informative seminars, morning inspiration, fitness classes, intriguing ports, endless activities, concerts, popular celebrities and wildly creative theme nights – all while raising funds to support students in school at Historically Black Colleges and Universities across the country.
Now in its 19th year, the Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage® presented by Denny’s is hosted by renowned radio personality and philanthropist, Tom Joyner. As one of the most spectacular cruises anywhere, the fundraiser consistently sells out and features notable entertainment and a creative 24/7 guest experience.
Joyner expressed his passion and excitement, saying “Denny’s has been a partner of ours for a long time and now they’re on board with our signature event the Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage cruise! Denny’s is where you can always get a good meal that’s a start to a ‘fantastic’ day or after an incredible concert, so it makes sense for them to be sponsoring the world’s biggest party with a purpose!”
In announcing the partnership, Denny’s CEO John Miller stated, “This sponsorship of the Fantastic Voyage is another exciting extension of our longstanding relationship with the Tom Joyner Foundation that spans over a decade. We’re looking forward to being an even bigger part of this ‘Party with a Purpose’ and helping invest in students’ dreams and higher education at many HBCUs.”
In addition to various joint initiatives over the years, Denny’s partners with Tom Joyner on its ‘Hungry for Education’ scholarship program as part of the brand’s continued commitment to empowering education and helping fight childhood hunger in America. Last year, Denny’s also launched a standalone education initiative “Denny’s First Generation College Scholarship Road to Success Fundraiser” to further uphold the company’s support of education in the African-American community. The program is designed to create scholarships for first generation college students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities across the country, with donations made at participating Denny’s restaurants and online at www.dennysfirstgen.com.
