Representatives from Shriners Hospital for Children and the Memorial Hermann Hospital will also be in attendance and a DJ will be on-site to pump up the crowd from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Salata Kingwood will donate 50 percent of the proceeds made on grand opening day to help support the medical rehabilitation of local boy, Seth Haynes, who was seriously injured in February after being struck by a vehicle while riding his bike.
“Our hearts went out to Seth and his family when we heard about his unexpected accident,” said Karim Haji, Salata Kingwood franchise owner. “We felt it was important to join the community in support of Seth’s recovery.”
