Black Walnut Cafe Hosts Fundraiser For Tornado Victims

May 25, 2017

DALLAS (May 25, 2017) – In response to the devastating tornadoes that recently hit three counties east of the DFW Metroplex, Black Walnut Cafe is hosting a fundraiser to help its neighbors get through this hard time.

On Tuesday, May 30, all five DFW-area Black Walnut Cafe locations will be supporting Habitat for Humanity of Denton County by donating 15 percent of total sales from 4 p.m. to close. Donations will be used to rebuild homes in Fruitvale, near Canton.

“Four people died and dozens more were injured and left homeless. It’s truly heartbreaking,” said Joe Brassard, President of Black Walnut Cafe. “All of us at Black Walnut Cafe wanted to do our part to help, so when we heard about the campaign our local mayors had organized, we were all in. We hope everyone will come by for dinner next Tuesday and help us raise funds for our neighbors in Fruitvale.”

Visit any of these five DFW locations to participate in the fundraiser:

955 W. Stacy Road, Allen
1205 Church St., Colleyville
775 North Denton Tap Road, Coppell
2945 Long Prairie Road, Flower Mound
5225 Warren Parkway, Frisco

Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.

“My fellow mayors and I are so pleased that Black Walnut Cafe has joined with us on this critical initiative,” said Flower Mound Mayor Tom Hayden. “The Flower Mound restaurant is one of my family’s favorites, so you can bet we’ll be there on Tuesday to enjoy a delicious dinner and pitch into the campaign. I hope all my friends and neighbors will join us!”

From signature eggs benedicts to handcrafted sandwiches to chilled local craft brews and swirly rows of gelato, at Black Walnut Cafe you have at your fingertips an option for every appetite and any occasion — and a good chance that during your next visit, you’ll happen upon something entirely new.
