BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – Many local restaurants gave away free meals in celebration of Mother’s Day on Sunday.
Suzie’s Dogs and Drafts in Boardman was one of them, offering moms free lunch and dinner.
The restaurant is named after the owner’s mother. Christian Rinehart said the day is special for his family because his mom raised him and his brothers.
“I lost my father when I was 13, so you know, it’s a crippling experience for a kid and a mother to lose their partner, but she raised me and gave me the values that I have now,” Rinehart said.
“It just means so much after raising them and seeing them grow into men and be successful and have lives of their own. What a blessing to have a chance to be with them today,” said Suzanne Rinehart, Christian’s mother.
He said O’Donald’s Irish Pub and Grill is named after his father as well.
