ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Olive Garden held a spirit night for Byne Christian School.

Ten percent of Tuesday night's proceeds will go toward Byne's Athletic Department. An initial spirit night in November raised $500 for athletic equipment. 

"With the church and the school we had a lot of participation and part of that is because we're offering homework passes to secondary students and coach for the day passes to the elementary students," said Byne Interim Athletic Director Holly Peek.

"In addition to that they get to go out to eat at Olive Garden with their parents, so it's a lot of fun for everyone involved," said General Manager Julie Bondurant.

The restaurant chain has donated more than $570,000 since starting a partnership with the National Federation of State High School Associations for spirit nights nationwide.
