Texas Roadhouse – Dine to Donate

Thanks to Texas Roadhouse for working with us on a fundraising evening held on Tuesday. We sold bags of peanuts and we will receive 10% of the meals from those who handed in the flyer. Thanks to all of you who supported us. A big thank you also to Candy Holliday for organizing the event and setting up and working the table for our peanut sales at the restaurant. I worked a shift at the table, but Candy did the heavy lifting. Thanks! 😊

See you soon!
