“Eat local. Order often. Benefit Irving Cares,” was the mantra of the 1st Annual Irving Cares Restaurant Week, May 11 – 24, 2015. It was a resounding success, drawing new and repeat business to the participating restaurants, generating awareness about Irving Cares’ mission, and raising $7,072 for Irving Cares.

A variety of meals and deals were available, with good times at every stop. Restaurant partners included Baker Bros. Deli, Champps, Fish City Grill, Glory House, i Fratelli Ristorante & Wine Bar, Joe’s Coffee Shop, La Margarita, Mi Cocina, PJ’s Café, and Taco Diner. “Irving Cares has enjoyed working with our generous partners, and we are excited that they are already helping us plan for next year’s event,” said Teddie Story, CEO of Irving Cares. “Look for the 2nd Annual Irving Cares Restaurant Week after Mother’s Day in 2016!”
