June is National Iced Tea Month and Yours Truly Restaurants recently launched "The First Tea" promotion, part of a new partnership with The First Tee of Cleveland. Throughout the summer months, a portion of the sales from two tea beverages at Yours Truly will go to support The First Tee, a national youth development program in Newburgh Heights that teaches youth life skills and leadership through golf.
The tea beverages offered are a delicious twist on the classic "Arnold Palmer" beverage, a mix of lemonade and tea. "Aced" Tea, priced at $6, is a blend of sweet tea, vodka and lemonade. "Par" Tea, at $2.50, is the traditional mix of sweet tea and lemonade. Pricing may vary by location.
The First Tee uses the venue of golf to promote its Nine Core Values and Life Skills curriculum. Youth in the program play on the organization's 9-hole golf course in Washington Park in Newburgh Heights.
Patricia LoPresti, executive director of The First Tee of Cleveland, said, "The partnership with Yours Truly and The First Tee of Cleveland through 'The First Tea' promotion is an outstanding and creative avenue to spread our brand awareness and promote the impact we are having in positive character development with the youth in our community."
