Texas Roadhouse raises money for charity
For tonight only, you can eat a good meal all while donating to a charity that supports young cancer patients.
Gulfport’s Texas Roadhouse is teaming up with dozens of other restaurants to raise money for the nonprofit organization called Riley’s Cause. It all started with a market partner in Texas whose wife was diagnosed with stage three brain cancer and their little Maltese poodle, Riley, was the one thing that always put a smile on her face.
So now the organization is dedicated to enriching the lives of young cancer victims and strives to provide whatever it can to make a difference for a child diagnosed with cancer. Texas Roadhouse Managing Partner Danny Barck said, “If my kids or something was having to go through something like cancer, I mean, I would be very appreciative of any organization out there providing things like that, you know, that gives them that little bit of extra comfort and whatever it took to help them through their battle with that.”
All participating restaurants will donate ten percent of food sales from now until 10 p.m. tonight.
