Benefit lunch for Special Olympics at Texas Roadhouse
NORMAL, Ill. — Texas Roadhouse restaurants in nine Illinois locations will be teaming up with their local law enforcement officers on July 29 when the restaurants host a Benefit Lunch.
Local officers will serve a “free” lunch of a limited menu from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Benefit Lunch menu consists of a pulled pork sandwich, a made-from-scratch side, bread-with-honey-cinnamon butter and a non-alcoholic beverage. Diners are simply asked to leave a donation at their table, all of which will benefit the more than 21,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities and more than 4,000 young athletes (ages 2-7) of Special Olympics Illinois.
The local participating Texas Roadhouse is at 7240 Walton St. in Rockford. The phone number is (815) 227-1283.
The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the single largest year-round fund-raising vehicle benefitting Special Olympics Illinois. The annual intrastate relay and its various fund-raising projects have two goals: to raise money and to gain awareness for the athletes who participate in
Special Olympics Illinois. The Law Enforcement Torch Run has raised more than $22.025 million over 25 years while increasing awareness of Special Olympics Illinois athletes and their accomplishments.
