Tonight’s Blank Canvas is all about partnerships and the positive, far reaching impact collaborations can have on communities.

This year, Popeyes has come on as a sponsor for the NAGB’s annual Easter ARTernoon, “Egg Mania”, an event that includes an Easter egg hunt and fun art and craft activities. The NAGB’s ARTernoons are just for kids and give children the opportunity to create and have fun in a safe, clean, creative environment. Simmons and Romer speak to Popeyes decision to support the NAGB in this initiative and discuss the importance of businesses choosing to be good corporate citizens. “Egg Mania” is being held at the NAGB this Saturday, April 20th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. To learn more and register your child visit
