Good Eating: Charitable Events at Restaurants This Week
Restaurant bent on doing good could just donate food to local non-profits. But what's the fun in that? Various Dallas eateries have dreamed up more creative ways to help their community: Read on for details of this week's charitable happenings.
The restaurant: Café Lago The cause: Fighting breast cancer
Café Lago owner Gabriela Pataro, whose sister was diagnosed and treated for breast cancer last year, wore a pink shirt celebrating breast cancer patients during this past weekend's Race for the Cure. She's now posted that shirt (washed first, we hope) at her restaurant's counter as a way of reminding patrons that's she's still collecting checks for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization.
Café Lago 9219 Garland Road, Suite 1102
The restaurant: Sullivan's Steakhouse The cause: Fighting breast cancer
Throughout October, Sullivan's Steakhouse is offering three-course Palate in the Pink meals, including a choice of starter, entrée and dessert for $39.95.
