3rd Annual "Carne for a Cause"

Local America's Taco Shop Restaurants Give Back with Charity Day

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - May 1, 2014 // PRNewswire // - America's Taco Shop® (www.americastacoshop.com) is dedicating a day to Phoenix Children's Hospital® with their 3rd annual Carne for a Cause event. On May 9th, 20% of all sales from all nine Valley locations will be donated to this special initiative.

"Carne for a Cause was inspired by the young daughters of our founders, America and Terry Bortin, and is something we find to be so rewarding," says Kate Unger, svp of marketing for Kahala. "Being able to raise money for Phoenix Children's Hospital is a true honor for the brand and something the various locations love participating in each year. It's a great way for us to be able to give back to the community."

Carne for a Cause started when the Bortins' daughters wanted to find a way to help the children in the hospital after passing the colorful building every day. Something struck a chord with them and they wanted to do something to reach out. Carne for a Cause was a result of those family conversations and as the brand has grown, Carne for a Cause is now celebrating its third year.
