Tex-Mex restaurant kicks off giving season, continues tradition of charity partnership
Chuy’s, the popular Austin-based restaurant opening in Rogers January 2014, has announced its northwest Arkansas charity partnership with the Sunshine School and Development Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing and enriching lives of individuals with disabilities.
In line with its long tradition of community involvement, additional fundraisers for northwest Arkansas Sunshine School and Development Center will be held at Chuy’s preopening events offering invited guests an exclusive taste of Chuy’s before the restaurant’s official opening.
“We’re honored to be named as the charity partner for Chuy’s Rogers,” said Greg Parker, board president of the Sunshine School and Development Center. “We’re thankful for this new partnership and impressed by Chuy’s commitment to our community. Their support will be vital to helping us continue to offer year-round programs for families and children with developmental disabilities.”
The Sunshine School and Development Center provides developmentally appropriate learning and therapeutic opportunities to young children who have been identified with developmental delays. Through outside funding and support, the school is able to offer tuition replacement to a limited number of students 18 months of age and older.
“Chuy’s was built on the foundation of giving back to our communities,” said Jason Crane, local owner/operator of Chuy’s Rogers. “We’re excited to begin a life-long partnership with Sunshine School and Development Center that helps so many northwest Arkansas children and families.”
Chuy’s Rogers will open at 4889 W. Pauline Whitaker Parkway on Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014.
