Z’Tejas Southwestern Grill recently donated $17,912 to the Military Assistance Mission in Arizona as part of its quarterly Cornbread for a Cause fundraiser.
Z’Tejas has contributed more than $90,000 to local nonprofits since it began Cornbread for a Cause in December of 2015. The restaurant group’s corporate giving program chooses local organizations in Arizona and Texas that benefit each quarter from proceeds of sales of its famous, freshly baked Z’Tejas cornbread. Those organizations that have benefitted in the past include Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation, Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas, Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club and Cheyanna’s Champions for Children.
“We first started Cornbread for a Cause as a way to give back to our communities,” said Gary Manley, General Partner at Z’Tejas Restaurants. “To see these large donations roll through is truly amazing and cannot be done without our customers who come in and support our mission. We are excited about continuing the momentum.”
Through Sept. 30, a portion of the cornbread proceeds from Z’Tejas’ five Phoenix-area locations will go to Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA (AAWL).
