Charities receive funds from Lake Highlands Chamber Restaurant Week

LH Chamber distributes proceeds of 2018 Restaurant Week

The Lake Highlands Chamber of Commerce distributed giant checks (and depositable bank-sized ones) last week after their highly successful Restaurant Week in April. The event, where patrons eat at neighborhood restaurants and charities receive a kickback, raised over $8,000 and grew more than 15 percent from 2017.

Four beneficiaries, Forerunner Mentoring, Feed Lake Highlands, Healing Hands Ministries and Pamper Lake Highlands, received just over $2,000 each.

Participating restaurants included Atomic Pie, Resident Taqueria, Lake Highlands Creamery, Cedar & Vine, Lake House Bar and Grill, One90 Smoked Meats, Picasso’s Pizza, Mi Cocina, El Fenix, JJ’s Café, KayCee Club, Yogurtland and Shady’s.

Congratulations, all.
