Restaurants Donate Proceeds to Tornado Victims

On March 3, a tornado ripped through Lee County, killing 23 people and injuring countless more. Now, several businesses are stepping up to give back.

If you’re out and about in Huntsville today, stop by Texas Roadhouse on Jeff Road for a late lunch or dinner between 4 and 10 p.m. The restaurant posted an announcement on Facebook saying they would be donating all the profits from March 11 to the Lee County Disaster Relief Fund.

In addition to the Texas Roadhouse fundraiser, a Morgan County restaurant is donating their profits to help those affected. Kickin’ Butts BBQ & Catering is donating all profits from sales on March 14 to the Lee County Disaster Fund. They are open from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

If you know of another group or business hosting a fundraiser for Lee County, send an email to [email protected].
