Chili’s Bar & Grill restaurants in Georgia and Tennessee held an event to help the victims of last week’s deadly tornado in Lincoln County.
More than 60 restaurants took part in the event Sunday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
When customers mentioned the fundraiser, ten percent of what was charged for their food, beverage and To Go orders went to tornado relief. They also had an option to make an additional donation.
The proceeds will go to the Lincoln County Disaster Relief Fund at the Bank of Lincoln County and managed by the local Emergency Management Agency.
