Luna Grill Starts Month-long Fundraising Campaign for Special Olympics

Aug 01, 2017 03:08PM ● By Maleesa Johnson

For the entire month of August, Luna Grill goers will have the chance to support local Special Olympics athletes before diving into some mouthwatering Mediterranean cuisine.  

Starting today, all five of Luna Grill’s Dallas-Fort Worth locations–including the one in Southlake–will give customers the option to make an additional cash donation during the ordering process. All donations will stay local, directly supporting athlete programs, training, events and more.

If you’re craving kabobs and an act of kindness, put Luna Grill on your lunch list this month. The restaurant chain classifies itself as “Luxe Casual,” meaning that it is a cross between fast casual and full service-sit down. Sauces are made fresh daily and meals are made to order. The menu is extensive, ensuring that everyone gets a taste of what they want. And who doesn’t want to do a good deed served with a side of feta fries?

The Special Olympics Texas has been serving athletes with intellectual disabilities statewide since 1969. In 2015, Special Olympics Texas reached over 55,000 athletes for the year, with the number of active athletes growing substantially from the previous year. Most recently, Dallas-area figure skater Ian Rawn represented the United States in the 2017 Special Olympics World Winter Games. There are many gifted Special Olympics athletes in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, so grab some hummus and give what you can.
