Texas Roadhouse gives $10,000 to local foundation
Duluth's Texas Roadhouse restaurant raised $10,300 for the Northern Lights Foundation during last weekend dry run.
The restaurant, which officially opened across from Olive Garden on Jan. 25, held two events Friday and Saturday for VIPs and other guests. The food was free, but money spent on tips and drinks went to the foundation that assists Northland families whose children have life-threatening conditions.
“Our corporate mission includes playing an active role in each of our communities,” Mark Prosen, the restaurant's managing partner in a prepared statement. “We plan to continually partner with local agencies like the Northern Lights Foundation and look forward to many many years of being a vital supporter of organizations that improve the quality of life for people who work and live in Duluth.”
