Longhorn steakhouse celebrated their 10-year anniversary in the Circle City Thursday and they donate part of its earnings to the Dothan Boys and Girls Club.
Longhorn's Managing Partner Sherry Thompson said, “My favorite part is interacting with the customers, as long as they like the food, and only themselves, then I'm enjoying myself.”
They welcome Longhorn's Steakhouse guests take orders, set up tables, and deliver food. Longhorn is donating 10 percent of Thursday’s earnings to the Wiregrass Boys and Girls Clubs.
“I could have easily had a promotion where I said it’s our tenth anniversary, come see us, it means more to me to be able to do something for someone else,” said Exec. Director Lance Wave of Wiregrass Boys and Girls Club.
The Wiregrass Boys and Girls Club serve more than five cities in the area, so a donation like this will help the thousands it serves yearly.
“Once a kid comes to the club and falls in love with it, they are a club kid,” said Wave.
Dothan high school student Grayson Martin was one of those “club kids” years ago. He was a member; now he's on the payroll.
“With it I was able to stay out of trouble I always had something to do, they put me on the right path,” Martin.
With Thursday’s 10 percent donation, Longhorn hopes to help with the club's efforts.
The money will be used to buy school supplies for the children who can't afford to once the school year comes around. Longhorn hopes to donate more than$ 1,000 of its earnings. The club helps about 350 children a day.
